“The colleges and high schools will have distance education.

“The Department would also like to remind the public that school reopening is being carefully carried out based on several factors. These include public health advice, the number and effects of Covid-19 cases, and the strong interest in student learning and well-being in person. Distance learning is only considered after other options have been exhausted due to the implications for students, parents and staff.

Acting Education Minister Tinee Furbert said: “We are focused on the safety of students and staff at school. With the implementation of the pre-return testing policy and the diligent application of other mitigation measures by schools, we are almost there.

“While the Department of Education has worked hard to keep the public up to date with back-to-school protocols, we recognize that this has been difficult for many staff and parents.

“We appreciate your cooperation as we work together to ensure our students are safe and prepared for classroom learning when schools reopen.”
