Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:
RE: Daily Temperature Checks

As a follow up to the letter from the Health Team on Monday January 7, 2019 please be informed that effective Monday January 14, 2019 the School will implement a daily temperature check until further notice.
All individuals entering the School Campus in the morning will be subject to a temperature check. Scanning stations will be established in the school and students and guests will be directed to these stations upon entering. Individuals with a fever will not be allowed to remain on Campus. If students display symptoms of influenza during the day they will be sent to the Health Room for a temperature check. Students with a fever will be sent home.
During the morning entrance procedures Gate A, used by Secondary students, will be closed. This entrance will reopen for lunch and after school.
We ask that you help us in maintaining a healthy learning environment by checking your child’s temperature and by keeping your child at home if he or she has a fever in the morning.
Please follow the fever reference chart below, provided by the CHP. For more info visit the website: http://www.chp.gov.hk
