Special announcement by Education Bureau

The Education Bureau (EDB) reminded all kindergartens, schools for children with physical disability and schools for children with intellectual disability to resume classes tomorrow (‪November 25‬).

All primary schools, secondary schools and some special schools had resumed classes on November 20.

As the road and traffic conditions have not fully recovered, the EDB reminded students and parents to pay attention to traffic news and relevant announcements before leaving home for school. Schools are also advised to continue to adopt contingency measures according to school-based mechanisms and exercise flexibility in handling individual students’ lateness or absence due to traffic problems.

If individual schools affected by social incidents need more time to prepare for class resumption, they may work out school-based contingency measures and notify parents as soon as possible. If individual schools are under special situations, they may also take the initiative to contact the bureau and appropriate support will be provided as necessary.

The EDB will continue to monitor the latest development and provide schools with timely advice and support.‬‬
