Special Arrangements in bad weathers

            There will be special arrangements in the event of tropical cyclones, heavy persistent rain or thunderstorms and the ‘Red’ or ‘Black’ warning of the Rainstorm Warning System. Parents are requested to inform the school about the arrangement of their children in special condition by filling in the reply slip (1).

(i) Normal Condition:

School will be closed and children should stay at home if the Director of EDB announces the closure of schools before 6:15 a.m. due to the following circumstances:

(1) Typhoon signal No. 8 or above is hoisted.

(2) The weather condition deteriorates as a result of typhoon.

         (3) Period of heavy persistent rain and thunderstorms occurs.

(4) The ‘Red’ or ‘Black’ warning of the Rainstorm Warning System is issued.

(ii) Special Condition:

     a.  The announcement of school closure is made after 6:15 and before 

          school hours:

(1) Parents should not send their children to school.

(2) Teachers will ensure the safety of those children who have already arrived  at school.

(3) The school will let children go home according to the instructions made by their parents.

(4) For parents who opt to pick up their children at school but cannot do so at once, they should contact the school by phone, advising the school when they will be available to pick up their children.

 

b.   The announcement of school closure is made during school hours:

(1)  The school will let children go home according to the instructions made by their parents.

(2) For parents who opt to pick up their children at school but cannot do so at once, they should contact the school by phone, advising the school when they will be available to pick up their children.

(3)  In the event that the Director of EDB announces the re-opening of school due to the lowering of typhoon signals or that the situation does not warrant the announcement of school closure, parents may still decide not to send their children to school because of weather, road or transport conditions in their own districts. Children will NOT be penalized under these exceptional circumstances and special arrangement will be made for them to re-sit for test/examination when necessary.
