PUTRAJAYA: Parents or guardians can choose not to send their children to school if they are worried about the threat of Covid-19 when schools reopen in stages starting Oct 3, said Senior Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin.

He said it would not be considered a disciplinary offence, adding that no warning letter would be issued to students.

"No warning letter will be issued to those who do not attend school, but parents are asked to write a letter to inform the school of their children's absence," he said in a press conference here today.

The Ministry of Education (MOE) today announced that physical classes which will start from Oct 3 in phases under the National Recovery Plan (PPN) would be implemented according to a weekly rotation system for primary and secondary school students.

He said school uniforms would not be made compulsory, adding that students are allowed to wear neat and appropriate clothes to school if they cannot fit into their uniforms.

"We do not want to put pressure on parents to provide new school uniforms for their children, our only goal is for the children to return to school," he said.
