    I dont think any playschools or preschools are going to refund any fees or adjust.

    i wouldn't make a sweeping statement like that.. as i said, i'm not charging for classes missed. i'll be offering make-up classes when we get back.

    it depends on who runs the playgroup and for what reason. if they are only in it for the money, then they will charge...i'm not. i still have to pay my employees, but it will be coming out of my pocket.

    My son called all excited that school is over. He said the teachers will be emailing the kids homework. :)

    My 2 children go to a school within the woodlands group and we will be asking what adjustments will be being made as a result. I will have to see what they say. I am also concerned as we have also booked for summer school, if the closure is extended it is an awful lot of money to have lost.

    Carang - thank you for doing the right thing. There is a playgroup that I am aware of that is not going to close. I think this is so wrong and it really makes me mad. It is totally incompetent in my books, shows a lack of regard for the children and the community and shows where their motivations lie. Please don't send your little ones to playgroup until the EDB lifts this suspension.

    Staff still need to be paid, just like when the EMB closed the schools in 2003 during SARS.

    Summer schools? Don't know how that would work......

    I do think that in this case it is a complete over reaction. Swine flu is nothing like SARS in terms of severity, and it seems to be a political move rather than one based on health.
