Special announcement by Education Bureau
Please broadcast the following special announcement immediately and repeat it at suitable intervals:

     Here is a special announcement from the Education Bureau concerning schools:

     In view of the traffic and emergency conditions and that some major traffic lines have been seriously affected today (November 13), the Education Bureau (EDB) announced that parents may decide whether their children should go to school. They should notify the school as soon as possible.

     The bureau stressed that schools should keep their premises open, arrange sufficient manpower as far as possible to take proper care of students who have arrived at school, maintain communication with parents, and allow students to return home only under safe conditions.

     The EDB reminded again that students must put safety first at all times. They must not wander on the streets or go to potentially dangerous places, and should never participate in unlawful activities.

     The EDB will maintain close liaison with schools and provide appropriate support as necessary.
