The government has instructed all the secondary, school and college, higher secondary and higher secondary-level higher education institutions to be ready to open by February 4. Prior to this, health safety must be ensured for students-teachers-employees.
The Directorate of Secondary and Higher Education (DSHE) on Friday night instructed the heads of the educational institutions and published a guideline regarding this.
The issue of health protection for students has been given utmost importance in the guidelines for opening educational institutions. Class activities will start by maintaining social distance. It has also been suggested to check the temperature with a thermometer before entering the school.
The benches in each classroom have been asked to be placed at a distance of 3 feet. If the length of the bench is less than 5 feet, then one student can sit on each bench. If the length of the bench is 5-7 feet, two students can sit on each bench. Thus, 12 students will be able to seat on six benches.
In the letter sent to the heads of the institutions, it is said that “not only to deal with the problems of the Covid-19 period but also on the occasion of Mujib Borsho, we have to take steps to build all the educational institutions as clean, healthier, safe and enjoyable institutions”.
After the first Covid-19 patient was identified in the country on March 8 last year, all educational institutions were shut down from March 18. The closure has been extended till January 30 this year.
