In its statement released this evening, the school said the Phnom Penh Municipal Education department has informed the management that a parent of a student at grade 6 was involved in “February 20 Community incident” and tested positive for the COVID-19.
“Due to safety concerns and to contribute to the prevention of the spread of the disease to the community, the SIS International School Board of Management, Lucky Star branch, will suspend classes for a period of time,” it said.
However, it added school will apply distant learning, starting from Monday until further notice.
The school also called on all parents to cooperate with the school management during hard times, saying the SIS International School Veng Sreng Branch will have class as normal.
