When the government announced an impending return to school, we set to prepare our learning environment to comply with the basic health protocols given by the Ministry of Health.
We have ensured we have the following: -
Handheld infrared thermometers to screen students. We purchased one
Sufficient sanitation, hand washing points and water storage tanks
Sanitizers and soap
Spacing within classrooms and staffrooms
Nutrition and food safety
Manning the point of entry/ recording health data for screened individuals
Complete building of library and makerspace
The measures have been sufficient, allowing us to reopen school for 26 students, and 10 staff as we prepare for the rest who are expected to rejoin school in January 2021.
I take this opportunity to thank you our partners for enabling us meet the above-mentioned protocols thus ensuring our children are safe and protected, both within the school and outside of the school.
I look forward to our continued partnership to do more in terms of innovative interventions for to mitigate the negative impacts of COVID-19 within schools, school systems and the home.
