Precautionary Measures for Schools from 11 Oct 2021
- Students in close contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case will no longer be placed on Quarantine Order(QO); they will be issued a 7-day Health Risk Warning (HRW) by MOH.
- MOE will no longer issue Leave of Absence (LOA) and Approved Absence (AA) to all students and staff.
- Students currently under existing QO, LOA or AA can return to school for lessons if they are well and have a negative ART result on the day they go to school.
- Primary schools will require close contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases in school to undergo regular ART self-testing while waiting for the issuance of an HRW. We seek your understanding that schools will no longer call parents to inform you that your child is a close contact of a confirmed COVID-19 case and will use electronic means (e.g. Parents Gateway or email) instead.

Protect Your Children and Yourself Against Dengue
Singapore is currently experiencing a historically high number of dengue cases. The weekly number of reported dengue cases continue to remain high and the cumulative number of dengue cases for this year (as of 5 Aug 2020) stands at more than 22,400 which is the highest recorded in a single year. The number of dengue cases has surpassed the 22,170 recorded in 2013, which was the previous largest dengue outbreak in Singapore. The National Environment Agency (NEA) is strongly encouraging all residents staying in dengue cluster areas to:
- Spray insecticides in dark corners at home (e.g. behind curtains and under beds);
- Apply insect repellent regularly; and
- Wear long-sleeve tops and long pants.
You are strongly advised to consider applying insect repellent on your children before they leave home for school. Students are also encouraged to bring the insect repellent to school for re-application, before they leave school for home.
Do remind your family members to apply insect repellent too. Here is a guideline on the use of insect repellent spray and a Dengue Self Protect Flyer for your reference.

Expanded Testing for COVID-19
Since 2 Jun, the government has expanded surveillance testing for COVID-19. We would like to share the Ministry of Health's guidelines and what it means for our students.
Parents/guardians should accompany their children who are unwell, with respiratory symptoms like cough, sore throat and runny nose, to see a doctor and be assessed for Acute Respiratory Infection (ARI). If diagnosed with ARI:
- Students (13 years and above) will be prioritised for COVID-19 testing and referred for testing at a polyclinic, designated GP clinic participating in the Swab-and-Send-Home initiative or Regional Screening Centre set up by the Health Promotion Board.
- Students (12 years and below) will be assessed by the doctor as to whether a test is required, as younger children may require different clinical considerations than older children. Those who do not require a test will be issued a 5-day MC and should stay home. If he/she is still unwell at the end of 5 days, he/she should return to the same doctor for follow-up assessment and may be referred to KKH/NUH for a test.
The student pass with NRIC/FIN number is required for testing.
Please note that there may be exceptions, depending on the professional judgement of the doctor.
Testing will also apply to school staff, complementing the other safe management measures put in place in our schools to safeguard student well-being. For more details, please refer to the MOE FAQs.
Stay safe and healthy!
Guidelines on the use of masks and face shields in school
The Ministry of Health has just announced that with effect from 2 Jun, face shields will be treated differently from masks. Masks will now be required as the default when you are outside your home.
Face shields will only be allowed in place of masks for specific exempt groups or settings, where the wearing of masks may not be practical. They are:
- Children 12 years and below, who may have difficulty wearing and keeping masks on for a prolonged period of time;
- Persons who have health conditions that may result in breathing or other medical difficulties when a mask is worn for a prolonged period of time; and
- Persons, including teachers, who are speaking to a group in a classroom or lecture-style setting, where they are able to maintain a safe distance from others.
In view of the latest announcement, students in secondary schools and JC/CI should not be wearing face shields unless they have a certified health condition as highlighted. We would like to seek parents’ assistance in ensuring that your children are equipped with the appropriate gear when returning to school, and that they know how to use and store them safely.
If your children, or anyone in the home is unwell, do take them to the doctor and stay home till they have recovered. Let us all do our part to keep the school community safe.
Thank you and stay safe and healthy.

Mandatory security measures for video conferencing platforms
The Ministry of Education (MOE) had earlier suspended the use of all video conferencing (VC) platforms following the recent security breaches on the VC platform Zoom, until the security issues are ironed out. MOE will now centrally manage teachers’ Zoom accounts. This enables MOE to enforce standardised security settings consistently across all teachers using the platform. These default settings will enhance security and restrict the use of Zoom’s functionalities, while allowing Live Lessons to still take place. For example, the use of passwords will now be mandatory for all lessons, while screen sharing, screen annotation and whiteboarding will be disabled and locked centrally.
In addition, teachers are now required to comply with protocols and practices to ensure the safe use of VC platforms such as verifying the identity of individual students before admitting them into the lesson. Teachers must confirm their compliance with these measures before they are allowed to resume using them for teaching.
The Ministry will allow for the progressive resumption of VC platforms as these are good tools for motivating students to learn. As long as individual teachers have put these additional measures in place and have familiarised themselves with the security protocols as required, they can resume the use of VC platforms for HBL.
These multiple levels of security are intended to ensure a safe teaching and learning environment for our students and teachers. Please click on the Ministry's webpage for information on the latest 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.

Advisory against all Non-essential Travel Abroad, 15 Mar 2020
With immediate effect, Singaporeans are advised to defer all non-essential travel abroad. This advisory will apply for 30 days, and will be reviewed thereafter. This is to reduce the risk of Singaporeans contracting COVID-19 while overseas during this global pandemic.
Singapore has also increased border restrictions to more countries, including all ASEAN countries, Japan, Switzerland and the United Kingdom, with a 14-day Stay-Home-Notice (SHN) for arrivals from 16 Mar 11.59 p.m., with exemption of those travelling into Singapore from Malaysia via sea or land. Click here to read the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) press release.
You are advised to review your travel plans during the March term break, and check the MOH website for the latest measures as well as list of countries that are subject to SHN requirements.
Should there be changes to your child’s/ward's travel plans, please amend your travel declarations on Parents Gateway by 17 Mar, Tues.
Thank you and stay safe.
