T1W7 – 14 Oct 2022
Dear SSIS Community,
Thank you for your support and understanding as together we navigate our way through the sudden Distance Learning notifications from the local authorities.
Today, we received an update from the Minhang Education Bureau noting that Distance Learning will continue until Tuesday 18 October for the whole school. Preschool, Primary and Senior School will continue to have distance learning on Monday and Tuesday. We need to wait for the release notification from the bureau to confirm whether face-to-face learning can resume in school on Wednesday, 19 October. We will inform our community promptly with relevant school information as we get it.
- For Preschool and Primary families on the 3-day home quarantine and 4-day health observation period, parents can leave their homes to go to work. All students and household members should continue to refrain from going out unless absolutely necessary and avoid crowded places.
- All Senior School staff, students and household members will continue to complete their 7-day home quarantine.
- All students, staff and household members should continue to get a daily PCR test, unless your compound has mandated a different schedule. We understand your difficulties to coordinate the testing so please only submit the latest PCR test results screenshots via this link when you have them.
One gentle reminder is to continue to practice healthy habits such as regular hand washing and wearing a mask when going out to public areas, especially in enclosed or crowded places. Please ensure your child comes to school wearing a mask even though it is not a piece of compulsory protective equipment.
As we enjoy the Autumn cool, the weather is also turning quite rapidly. Please stay warm and dress appropriately for the change of seasons.
Take care and we look forward to seeing all of you face-to-face soon!
Ms Billie LEONG
