Importance Notice on Coronavirus Situation

Dear Parents, 

As school re-opens on 29 Jan 2020, MOE will be enhancing precautionary measures, including daily temperature taking, to ensure that our schools remain a safe and healthy learning environment.  

Personal Responsibility

Please ensure your son brings an Oral Digital Thermometer to school from 29 Jan onwards. 

As this is a personal responsibility of all students, we will require students without their personal Oral Digital Thermometers to purchase one or return home to retrieve one before he can be allowed to continue with the day’s curriculum. 

While teachers actively look out for students’ well-being, please ensure your son practises good personal hygiene and social responsibility. You should take your son to the doctor if he is unwell and we would appreciate it that you keep your son at home until he recovers.  

Leave of Absence for Students Returning from China

If your son has returned from mainland China on 15 Jan or later, he will be placed on Leave of Absence (LOA) for a period of 14 days, starting from the first day after return. For example, if your son returns to Singapore on 28 Jan (Tue), the LOA would last from 29 Jan to 11 Feb, with the date of return to school being 12 Feb (Wed).


Students on LOA will be supported by home-based learning assigned by the school.  If you have any queries, you can contact your son’s Form Teachers, or email us at stgss@moe.edu.sg or call us at 62889470.

For updates on the coronavirus situation, you can visit moh.gov.sg or sign up at go.gov.sg/whatsapp to receive the latest information via Whatsapp. We will keep you updated on school measures and education related notifications.
