  • 7 of these pupils will be sent to hospital for control and follow up also there
  • Parents of the concerned 10 pupils are being directly informed by school, including information of if sent to hospital and also what hospital
  • If you have not received a phone call from school, please don’t contact school to ask questions right now.
