Schools to Reopen in November After Adopting Measures
The Ministry of Education is considering ending the long closure of schools in November 2020 should Covid-19 measures be adopted by the learning institutions across the country.
Sources in the ministry unveil that schools may be about to experience a phased reopening in November with Form Four and Class Eight candidates allowed to sit for exams.
In preparation for schools for the resumption of learning, the ministry will on Monday, September 7, roll out training of school heads in basic and higher learning on Covid-19 health guidelines that have been undergone by the regional county and sub-county education directors.
The program was kick-started on Monday, August 31.
Education CS George Magoha warned parents against pushing for the reopening of schools as he was speaking during his tour to Nyeri county on Friday, September 4 to ascertain the level of preparedness of Sagana Technical Training Institute.
“Have we hit a 5% positivity rate? No, we haven’t. The World Health Organization stated that we have to achieve 5% for two consecutive weeks.
“Why are you in a hurry yet the pandemic is coming down? I have lost a relative who died of Covid-19. What about you? We have seen even leaders who have been hospitalized for suffering this disease,” noted Magoha.
Conditions Set for Schools before Reopening
The prerequisites set to be met by schools include ensuring adequate clean running water and sanitization facilities in the institutions to contain the spread of the deadly virus.
Additionally, schools should purchase liquid soaps, non-contact thermometers, disinfectants, facemasks, and first aid kits.
Learners below nine years of age will be required to be accompanied by class teachers upon arrival at school gates and escorted back when leaving.
Co-curricular Activities Temporarily Banned
Co-curricular activities such as games, drama, music, sports, inter institution competitions, or any other events that could lead to crowding have been temporarily banned.
Schools should also replenish washrooms and bathrooms to ease congestion that can pose a threat to students.
A Covid-19 response committee of a maximum of five members and including one learner and a non-teaching staff member will also be established by schools.
