Under a document signed by Vice-Chairman of the city People’s Committee Chu Xuan Dung on Thursday, the committee agreed to allow the resumption of direct learning in senior high schools (from 10th to 12th grades), vocational training facilities, and centres for continuing education in districts and towns, classified as at Level 1 or 2 on their coronavirus risks, and having no new Covid-19 infections for two weeks by Nov 30.
To date, all 30 districts and towns in Hanoi are deemed at Level 1 and 2, which means carrying the lowest and moderate risks.
But the increasing number of daily infections in the capital city means not all high school students can be back to school on Monday.
Students from first to eighth grades will continue to learn online, and children at pre-school age will stay at home.
Schools are requested to implement pandemic prevention and control measures in line with guidelines given by the Departments of Health and Education and Training.
Students will only attend direct classes for half a day. School canteens are not allowed to operate.
The Steering Committees on Covid-19 Prevention and Control at district, ward and town level will consider the adjustments and suspension if necessary.
Results of the scheme will be reported to the city People’s Committee to serve as the foundation for future plans.
A flexible combination of online and direct learning will be implemented in localities with different pandemic levels.
On Nov 8, the capital city allowed ninth-graders in 18 districts and towns to return to school for direct learning. — Vietnam News/ANN
