What do you first think of when I mention the date 19 May 2020?
To most, it may just be another day of living with Circuit Breaker. However, to a group of graduating students, 19 May is when they first return to school.
The graduating students included those from Primary 6, Secondary 4 and 5, Junior College 2, and Pre-U 3.
Before you start worrying about clusters forming, let me reassure you that Singapore is well-prepared.

4. Compulsory social distancing
Firstly, there should be minimal movement within classrooms, and students should stay seated on their allocated seats during lessons.
Not only that, it is compulsory to wear a mask at all times be it within the school premises or on the way home.
5. Usage of face shields & microphones to conduct lessons
Teachers will have to use face shields and/or masks in classrooms.
And for all those paranoid parents who are worried that the shields or masks will prevent their child from being able to hear their teachers clearly, personal microphones will be used.
