Nurul Halim started this petition to Pejabat Pendidikan Daerah Petaling Perdana and

URGENT support required in the next 12 hours before schools tahap 1 resumes on 9th March 2021, 1.00pm.

Sekolah Kebangsaan Subang Jaya is a great school with amazing teachers. It has almost 1000 students split by tahap 1 evening session (standard 1-3), tahap 2 morning session (standard 4-6) and preschoolers. The school has done a great job during school opening putting SOP in place and continuously improving every day since it opened on 1st March to standard 1 and 2.

Unfortunately, 3 children has been infected with Covid 19 (not from the school) and has exposed the school to the virus. The respond from PKD was to shut down only the 3 affected classes, quarantine 17 teachers and the students in those 3 classes, put SOP in place and the rest of the school to continue as usual.

This has raised immense concerns from parents and we’re petitioning for the school tahap 1 to be temporarily closed immediately reason being:

1) safety of our young children and teachers comes first

2) it puts a lot of stress on teachers to cope when 17 teachers are under quarantined

3) with tahap 1 closed, we can move to online learning with proper schedule and approach as it is so difficult for limited numbers of teachers to do both offline and online classes effectively. With proper online classes/ learning during the temporary closure can be beneficial to all parties without leaving the quarantine students behind in their learning.

4) provide security to parents and encourage them to come back to school after quarantine period ended. Despite efforts to remain open, the attendance remains low due to fear. With longer stay home period for the children and teachers, there is more security for parents to send them back on 19/3/2021 and this is what we want at the end.

5) to break the chain of Covid-19 at SKSJ once and for all

We honestly welcome school to be back when the government announced it. But in these circumstances we hope the ministry put our children safety first until further risk evaluation is done post quarantine period of all teachers and students affected.

Those signing this petition appeal your kindness to re-evaluate the decision to temporarily close the tahap 1 and continue with online learning until 18/3/2021. We are here with you fighting against Covid 19 and hope you will fight with us in our cause in protecting our beloved children and teachers.

 

update 12th March 2021: petition writer amended this petition that now the covid positive case in Sekolah Kebangsaan Subang Jaya has changed from 4 to 3. School has updated that the fourth positive case child took a second test where the test results turned negative. Thank you
