PETALING JAYA: Year One to Year Six pupils in primary schools, as well as those in remove classes and Form One to Form Four students in secondary schools in Perlis, Perak, Penang, Sabah and Kedah will be attending school using a weekly rotation model.

The Education Ministry said this decision to bring all students back was made after monitoring the situations at schools since schools resumed face-to-face learning starting Oct 3 using the Guidelines for School Management and Operations 3.0.

“After taking into account these findings as well as the current situation of the Covid-19 pandemic, the ministry decided that the attendance of students this time would not be implemented in stages but would maintain the rotation model,” it said in a statement on Tuesday (Nov 9).

However, the ministry also said students in full boarding schools will be resuming face-to-face lessons without using the rotation model.

It added that the details for admission into full boarding schools will be provided by the schools to parents and guardians at a later date.

It also said that this will also apply to all private schools and educational centres registered with the ministry.

On Monday (Oct 8), the ministry announced that educational institutions under the ministry in Perlis, Perak, Penang, Sabah and Kedah will resume operations on Nov 21 and 22, in accordance with the regulations stipulated under Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan.

In Kedah, schools will reopen on Nov 21, and on Nov 22 for schools in Perak, Perlis, Penang and Sabah.
