“We have students who are actually all there; they’re very easy to handle. You know, they get very quickly, but yet there are some that need a little bit of push a little bit of extra attention, a little bit of extra care for educators for teachers, patience goes long way.”

Singh is also urging parents to monitor their children to ensure they are well.
