Schools will reopen on 23 Mar with enhanced precautionary measures
Schools will re-open for Term 2 on 23 Mar (Monday) as planned.
The Ministry of Health (MOH) has announced that the 14-day Stay Home Notice (SHN) will be issued to returning Singapore Residents and visitors from all countries. To further protect our schools, the Ministry of Education (MOE) will implement additional precautionary measures by issuing a 14-day Leave of Absence (LOA) to students and staff who have been out of Singapore on or after 14 Mar. Day zero of the 14 days of the LOA will commence from the date of their return to Singapore, and affected students should keep away from schools with immediate effect, that is, from Friday, 20 Mar, until the end of the 14 days. All affected students will be supported via home-based learning.
All schools have been thoroughly cleaned and enhanced hygiene measures are in place.
MOE will continue to monitor the situation closely. Updates will be disseminated to all parents/guardians via the Parents Gateway app.
