The promotion and protection of a safe, disciplined, and inclusive learning environment is necessary for effective teaching and learning in the school.

With the advent of the pandemic, stricter measures are in place to ensure the safety of all. No child, staff, parents, or visitors can enter the school without wearing a face mask. This protects the individual as well as others around them and to slow the spread of the disease. Social distancing, washing hands, regular cleaning or disinfecting frequently touched surfaces has not only become an order of the day, but a part of our lives.
Both teachers and parents still need to remain aware of the danger of the Virus and keep on reinforcing that taking simple daily precautions can help. Instead of visiting or having sleepovers, parents should always encourage virtual connection with friends and share safety precautions.
