From the Principal
With the reopening of the schools for the Academic Year 20 - 21, our beloved students are going to be in our care hence we would like to reassure our parents of the precautions that we are taking to ensure a secure, safe and healthy environment. It will start from the time they come into the school, the temperature check, the care during the social distancing and the care inside the classrooms. We would like to be a paperless school, that’s why we have asked you to bring your own devices. A mandatory social distancing policy will be maintained between the students inside classrooms and they will also need to wear their masks. There will be no assemblies nor activities, however, we will come up with ways to make school fun.
Tips & Advises From
& Safety Manager
Health & Safety Manager at Beam
“We encourage frequent and correct hand hygiene—particularly after sneezing or coughing, before and after eating, after sensory play and after going to the washrooms. We educate the children to cough and sneeze into their sleeves, (not their hands) or use tissues to shield their faces. The cleaning staff perform thorough cleaning and disinfecting activities, especially on the frequently touched areas such as doorknobs, stair rails, telephones, computer keyboards and bathroom faucets and fixtures throughout our school, on a daily routine”.
“Remember cold and influenza are the most contagious during the first 48 hours. Monitor your children to determine if it is safe to send them to school as your child should be physically able to participate in all school activities on return to school. Keeping a sick child at home will help minimize the spread of infections and viruses in the classroom. Thank you in advance for helping us keep our school community as healthy as possible”.
