Dear Parents,          

We have put in place a school continuity plan to ensure the well-being of your child during a haze situation. We are ready to respond and take appropriate haze management measures based on the guidelines corresponding to MOH’s health advisory.

Schools will spread out students across the enclosed indoor spaces, such as the library, to allow for better thermal comfort and ventilation.
