  1. We have obtained all parent's preferred DMA option. However, as mentioned earlier under Parents' Information, we need up to 2 weeks to enable your option. Also, we are facing a technical issue but hope to resolve it within these 2 weeks.

  2. Parents of students from Sec 1 and 3 (who have collected your PLDs), we hope to get your understanding in this matter. Currently, the default MOE setting is in place for everyone's PLD.

Update on DMA Parent Portal on 22 Sept

This message has been sent through Parent Gateway on 22 Sept 2021

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As communicated, your child’s/ward’s PLD has been installed with DMA to ensure that he/she uses the PLD for learning in a safer digital learning environment.

In February this year, you have provided us your option for DMA and 1 parent’s email address. Please read below for more details for each option.


1) Our school-prescribed school hours is 6am to 6pm on weekdays.

2) After-school hours is 6pm to 11pm on weekdays and 6am to 11pm on weekends.

If you have chosen the Default Option,

The DMA Parent Portal will be available from 18 Oct 2021 to allow you to monitor your child’s/ward’s PLD activities after-school hours. At 11pm, device will go to sleep mode.

If you have chosen Option A,

In addition to Default Option above, parents using option A can download apps to be used after school hours and adjust the sleep hours.

If you have chosen Option B,

Starting from 18 Oct 2021, for after-school hours, you can disable the DMA on the PLD. The device will also not go to sleep mode.

Refer to the guides for each option.

Another PG message will be sent nearer 18 Oct to remind only the Default and Option A users to check your email inbox for an activation email. Option B users will not receive any activation email.

During school hours, school’s DMA settings will take effect. Learning how to use the DMA Parent portal is important for Default and Option A parents to monitor use or to manage the DMA for after-school hours. Our school has scheduled a zoom session to guide you on the use of the DMA Parent Portal. Kindly add this to your calendar:

Day/time: 2 Oct, 10 am (Estimated 1h)

Please rename yourselves to your child/ward’s class and name. (E.g. 2A_Kenny) and remember to switch on your video and mute your microphone.

Should you need clarifications, please contact me at liew_geok_may_sherry@moe.edu.sg.
