When school starts - Go Home Early, can??

Postby Big fish » Sat Jun 22, 2013 11:16 am

School is starting soon, kiasu? Die die must go?
But I also kiasi, so can go home earlier?

Maybe schools can release students at around noon (give quality teachings
and everyone can go home earlier.)

I doubt the school will end at 12noon. I do hope school stop all CCA when school starts, good enough.

If school does not stop CCA, I will write in for LOA becos her CCA is strenous physical type. Not using CCA to DSA so not bothered if dd1 has to stop for the time being.

Not all CCA are outdoor. Some are indoor and in air-conditioned rooms, these should be ok.

If condition remains bad, I am more in favour of closing the schools for another week. It's the 6 hours or so when our children are in classrooms that is more worrying. Most schools do not have air-conditioned classrooms. And what about recess, the food that is sold to the children - how long has the food been exposed to the open air? The children must also remove their masks to eat, drink, and do they know how to put back their masks properly? Even some adults don't know how to wear the masks properly.

maybe do alternate days.
lower primary tues and thurs, upper primary mon, wed, fridays.
give teachers a breather too and easier to crowd control with smaller groups.

If the haze condition con't and if school con't, I hope the tr will do a mask check after recess to make sure that the masks are correctly worn.

I pity the kids who have to wear the masks for 7hrs though. Not sure if all kids will want to wear the masks for such a long period.

If the mask is moist or dirty, then need to change. Pack extra mask for child to change.

Then we will need a lot of N95 masks. Where to find?!
