Students to continue learning while at home during 14-day period - MoE

The following is the full text of bulletion 48/2020 which the Ministry of Education dispatched to regional directors, school board chairmen and principals of all public educational institutions on Thursday last advising of the closure of schools for 14 consecutive days and outlining ways for students to continue their learning during the period. 

 

Dear colleagues,

School administrators are being advised that the ministry is now at the Red Alert phase of the Education in Emergencies plan. Consequently, schools will be closed with effect, March 13, 2020 for 14 days. During this period, the situation will be monitored and after 10 days, an update will be provided.

School administrators are being asked to organise their staff (ancillary and academic) to facilitate the preparation, support and monitoring of learning activities while students are out of school. Parents/guardians are to be advised to make the necessary preparation to retrieve students from boarding institutions including our teachers' colleges.
