Following the decision to reopen schools and resume academic sessions on October 3 under the National Recovery Plan (PPN), most parents are anxious and jittery about sending their children to school in the midst of this worsening pandemic.
Therefore, in the recent announcement made by the Senior Minister of Education Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin, parents will not be forced to send their children to school despite the weekly rotation system that will be implemented in schools. The ministry will let parents decide what they feel is safe and best for their children.
Dr Radzi also added that all schools will be instructed not to issue any warning letter to students if they choose not to attend physical classes as it will not be considered a disciplinary offence.
However, when schools reopen in October, parents must write a letter to inform the respective schools of their children’s absence, explaining why they would rather have their children participate in home-based learning.
