Education Bureau announces class suspension of all schools to continue tomorrow
As severe Typhoon Mangkhut has caused varying degrees of impact on schools, some schools need time to clean up and repair their premises and facilities. In addition, public transport services have yet to be fully resumed. To ensure the safety of students, the Education Bureau has announced the class suspension of all schools tomorrow (18 September).
Under safe conditions, schools should keep their premises open. Arrangements should be made for staff members to take care of students who have a genuine need to return to school in a safe place within the school premises. Parents should consider factors such as their home situation, road conditions in the vicinity and the care that their children need when deciding whether to send them to school.
