All government and government-approved schools will deliver in-person lessons all five days of the week starting from August 15 (Monday), the Ministry of Education says.
Accordingly, the schools will function from Monday to Friday during regular hours – between 7.30 a.m. and 1.30 p.m.
In a press release, the Education Ministry said the provincial authorities were directed to arrange a program to provide transport facilities for principals, teachers and students of schools located in areas where public transport services are yet to return to normalcy.
Principals should provide relief to teachers and students who still find it difficult to secure transport facilities, and these relief measures should be informed to the provincial directors of education, Education Ministry noted.
The communiqué also stressed that the next three months should be utilized to teach the curriculum to the students, and extracurricular activities should be conducted after the regular school hours. The Education Ministry also advised to limit the functions held at schools for the time being.
