I hope this update finds all of our families safe and healthy during this difficult time. As you may already be aware, the MSAR government announced yesterday, a 14 day quarantine for non-resident workers coming from mainland China or who have been to China in the past 14 days. Please see the government news story here. As of yet, we have not heard how this may impact our students and families who live in Zhuhai and come to Macau on a daily basis. We will continue to monitor and follow the government’s lead and support wherever possible.
If, as a family, you have been travelling outside of Macau during this time, please be aware and prepared that you may be required to self-quarantine for up to 14 days upon return to Macau. The government has not implemented the requirement as of yet and I mention this only as a precaution and consideration with how conditions are constantly changing.
The government is keeping us well informed and have assured schools that we will have at least a week’s notice of when classes can resume. We expect that there will need to be some flexibility and adapting for individual circumstances when classes resume and we are prepared to support our students and families when the time comes.
Administration and management continue to meet to adjust the school calendar for the remainder of 2019-20 as necessary. The online teaching does count as instructional days and should not impede your child’s progress in completing the grade your child is in this year.
Again, thank you very much for your continued support and effort during this time. We are all looking forward to getting back to the regular routines of school.
Head of School
