COVID -19 threat is there but education continues.  School ensures the implementation Provincial Government’s SOP to provide the safe environment. To ensure the social distance, the students are divided into two equal groups. A group of students who comes today will be at leave on next day and second group will come next day. Under the guidelines of WHO, IEC material is displayed in the school and students are sensitized about the SOPs to keep under consideration. Written guidelines were also sent to the homes of school to aware the other family members of the student about guidelines to keep the whole family safe from Corona virus. This is very encouraging that not a single person is declared Covid-19 positive.
