Your travel information will allow the school to support and facilitate absent students during the period of self-isolation.

  • If an SPM student family member has returned home from overseas (outside of Indonesia) since the 20th Feb 2020, the SPM student is allowed to attend school however we kindly ask the student to wear a surgical mask for a mandatory 14 day period.

SPM will provide study material for SPM students to do at home while they are self-isolating. These materials can be collected at school.


Best Practices

  • Self isolate if any doubt
  • Wash hands regularly
  • Reduce close contact with others
  • Clean/Disinfect surfaces
  • Regularly check temperature
  • Eliminate non-essential travel

*If you, your child or a family member has any signs of sickness (flu-like symptoms), we kindly ask you to respect others and keep your child at home and only return to school when your child has fully recovered.

Students who are found to have any flu-like symptoms will be sent home immediately.

Moreover, we are carrying out daily ongoing cleaning/disinfecting of all school areas. This cleaning/disinfecting encompasses hallways, classrooms, tables, toilets, playground equipment, canteen areas, IT labs, reception, Gyms, PE Equipment and so on. This cleaning/disinfecting process will be ongoing and routinely done.

SPM's commitment is to keep calm, educate our community, be consistent in health and hygiene and base actions on facts.

These are the steps the school is taking to educate and maintain the health and safety of all. If any member of the SPM community is in any doubt then the course of action is Best Practice No. 1 (Self isolate if any doubt).


Thank you for your continued support.

Your SPM Team
