The Ministry of Education has prohibited the exchange of paper materials between parents and schools, as an extra step to prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 virus.

In a note sent to schools and educational establishments, its directive reads:

We are writing with an addition to our previous communication with regards to the precautionary and preventative measures taken to reduce the possibility of
transmission of the COVID 19 virus infection.

In line with the health and safety guidelines on how to protect the health and safety of students during this period, we ask all educational institutions institutions (ELC, Schools, Universities, and Training Institutes) to immediately, and until further notice, prohibit the exchange of all types of paper materials with its students.

To ensure uninterrupted delivery of education through distance learning, all
institutions are expected to incorporate alternative strategies using various distance and online learning methods, in addition to any electronic communication tools that are accessible to your teachers and students.

Our ability to successfully navigate the days ahead depends on all of us working together for the good of our community."
