Enhanced Precautionary Measures for School Reopening after March Holidays

Dear Students,
School will re-open for Term 2 on 23 March (Monday) as planned.  
MOH has announced on 18 March that a 14-day Stay Home Notice (SHN) will be issued to returning Singapore Residents, and visitors from all countries, with effect from 20 March 2359 hrs.
To further protect our Schools, MOE will implement additional precautionary measures by issuing a 14-day Leave of Absence (LOA) to students and staff of schools, who have returned from overseas on or after 14 March (Saturday), which is the start of the March school holidays. Day zero of the 14 days will commence from the date of their return to Singapore.
This means that affected students and staff must stay away from school for the duration of their SHN or LOA. This will take effect from 20 March. This would better ensure our school remain a safe environment for our students and staff.
Students on LOA, as well as those who have to stay away from school due to quarantine orders or SHN, will all be supported via home-based learning.  You may contact the SST General Office at Tel: 65717200 if you need clarifications.   Details of the latest MOE press release can be found HERE.   
Thank you.
