EDB reminds schools and parents to get prepared for class resumption tomorrow
     The Education Bureau (EDB) has announced that classes will resume tomorrow (September 19) as schools are generally ready after the cleaning and repair works of their premises and facilities in the past two days.
     If individual schools consider that it is necessary to continue to suspend their classes tomorrow because of the conditions of the school premises or other reasons, they may proceed after consulting the respective District School Development Sections/Joint Office for Kindergartens and Child Care Centres of the EDB. Schools are required to inform all school staff, parents, students and relevant parties of the decision and related arrangements as soon as possible in accordance with their school-based contingency plans. Schools should also make suitable arrangements to cater for the learning needs of students during the extended class suspension period.
     Parents should pay attention to the safety of their children. If the road and traffic conditions in the vicinity have yet to return to normal, they may let their children stay at home. For students who are late for school because of traffic problems and/or those who are temporarily absent because of their parents' decisions, schools should exercise discretion in handling these cases and the students concerned should not be penalised.
