The secondary schools in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab, and Balochistan have reopened today as the students from the classes six to eight returned back to their schools nearly after a span of 6 months.
However, in the province of Sindh, the schools for grades six to eight would be commencing from the 28th of September.
As per the shared SOPs earlier by the government, masks have been mandated upon all the teachers and students coming to school, while it has been directed to the educational institutes that they are needed to ensure that the sanitizers are available at the entrances.
Shafqat Mahmood, the federal minister for education and professional training had previously announced officially the decision of starting the secondary classes in schools. But, he said that the government of Sindh had taken the decision to further revise the coronavirus situation during this week and then resume the classes for grades six to eight from the 28th of September.
He also said that after strict monitoring of the coronavirus situation for the next 1 week, the government would be able to take a decision regarding the reopening of the primary classes.
The federal education minister urged parents, teachers, and students to strictly abide by the SOPs in order to keep the spread of the virus in control.
