Teachers and pupils urged to follow health rules as classrooms reopen
The Minister of Education today urged teachers, parents and pupils to follow health and safety restrictions when they return to the classroom on Wednesday.
As previously reported by The Royal Gazette, in class teaching will resume in all schools following a decision by the Education Emergency Measures Committee.
The education ministry said in a statement today that school buildings were ready and that they would be run for their usual hours with Covid-19 regulations enforced.
Diallo Rabain, the education minister, thanked the committee and appealed to teachers, parents and pupils to review and maintain health and safety precautions.
He added: “This includes mask-wearing, hand hygiene and physical distancing.
“We understand this is a stressful time, but we must continue to follow the advice given by the Department of Health.”
Kalmar Richards, the Commissioner of Education, said: “We wish to thank teachers, staff, parents and students for their patience as we continue to work together.
“These are unprecedented times, and I am grateful for our school families and the community for their continued co-operation.”
Schools went back last week, but on a remote learning basis for most pupils.
