Dear ICS Community,
As a gentle reminder, ICS requires that you complete an updated travel declaration form for every student and member of your household any time you make or change travel plans from 01 February to 31 July, 2020.
Due to the growing number of Covid-19 cases in the Republic of Korea, the Singapore government has updated their travel advisory to request that individuals avoid non-essential travel to Daegu city and Cheongdo county, Republic of Korea.
The Singapore government is now issuing 14-day Stay-Home Notices (SHNs) for travellers returning from all parts of mainland China except Hubei province as well as Daegu city and Cheongdo county, Republic of Korea. Individuals returning from Hubei province will be subjected to quarantine. If you, your child, or anyone in the student's home is traveling to or returning from these cities, ICS requires that you inform us of the travel at this time.
Currently, students who return from mainland China (excluding Hubei province) as well as Daegu city and Cheongdo county, Republic of Korea, are issued a SHN and required to stay in their homes for the first 14 days of arrival back into Singapore. These students will not be allowed to attend school. Please note that students who violate the SHN will face government-sanctioned disciplinary actions. Per government requirements, ICS must have a whistleblowing channel to allow community members to come forward with information on students and employees who do not comply with their SHN. You can report information on this form here, which is also available on the ICS website, or by contacting the school directly at email@example.com.
If a student is living in a home with someone who is issued a SHN from now until 31 July 2020, the student's parent or guardian must notify ICS immediately. ICS is requiring the student to be on a Leave of Absence (LOA) for the 14 days the individual in the home is serving the SHN. When the SHN is lifted, the ICS student may return to school.
As we have said from the beginning of the Covid-19 situation, our priority remains in keeping our students, staff, and community safe. We are grateful for your partnership in keeping everyone safe.
Dr. J.P. Rader
