61/63 provinces, cities allow students to return to schools this week
Most students from kindergartens to high school levels across the country are scheduled to come back to schools this week. Only Hai Duong and Hai Phong have not made an official announcement of the return, VTC News reported.
As the Covid-19 situation is at ease, it is not needed to adjust this school year’s schedule. Nevertheless, the education sector still needs to prepare different scenarios to avoid being passive, said the Ministry of Education and Training (MoET).
Schools have rushed to implement epidemic preventive measures to ensure safety for teachers and students. Schools that have not permitted students to come back continue organizing online teaching.
Over the past two days, many schools in Hanoi disinfected areas before welcoming students back on March 2.
Nguyen Phu Cuong, Principal of Ly Thuong Kiet Secondary School (Long Bien District) said that the school has fully prepared soap, hand sanitizer, and face masks, etc.
All students will have their body temperatures checked before entering the class, he added.
Phuc Loi Primary School (also in Long Bien District) has complied with the Health Ministry’s 5K message especially wearing face masks and making health declarations.
