IPOH: Parents must always adhere to the National Recovery Plan (NRP) standard operating procedures, especially when fetching their children back from schools.
Perak police management department chief Asst Comm Mohd Zaini Mat Yusof said some parents may forget about the SOPs as they rush to get their children.
“I understand that some parents may want to fetch their children quickly and could forget to follow the SOP," he said.
“The police will be present when school starts and also when it ends to monitor and ensure that the SOPs are followed,” added ACP Mohd Zaini.
Speaking after visiting SK Cator Avenue here in conjunction with the reopening of primary schools under Phase Four of the NRP on Monday (Nov 22), he said that the police will continue to monitor SOP compliance until school holidays start.
ACP Zaini said the police will work closely with the state and district Education Departments to curb the spread of Covid-19.
“I also understand there are still pupils that have yet to be vaccinated. We advise the pupils to always wear their face masks. We also encourage double-masking,” he said.
Some 852 primary schools in Perak reopened on Monday, involving about 100,000 pupils.
The pupils will be split into two batches, with half of them returning to school and the other half to join classes virtually.
The two batches will take turns to return to school every week.
