Covid-19: All schools in S'gor ordered to close for two days ahead of Raya break

PETALING JAYA: All schools in Selangor have been instructed to close for two days.

The schools will be closed on Thursday (May 6) and Friday (May 7), said a circular issued by the state Education Department.

“In light of the fact that there will only be two days of face-to-face learning left before the Hari Raya break, the ministry has decided to close all schools in the state.

“Schools must ensure that home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) is conducted during the closure.”

The circular, dated Wednesday (May 5) and sighted by The Star, was signed by Selangor Education director Izmi Ismail.

On April 26, Education Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin announced that all schools would be carrying out PdPR for two weeks after the Hari Raya Aidilfitri school break.
