By Benjamin Flowers: As authorities continue to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Education is doing its part in keeping students at all levels safe, by banning face-to-face summer classes.
The Ministry issued a statement today informing the public that the non-approval of face-to-face summer classes was decided on following guidance from the Ministry of Health and Wellness. The non-approval is in effect for all pre-primary, primary, secondary schools, and tertiary institutions.
“Schools may, however, offer summer school using online formats for those students who need the necessary support to address promotion concerns or academic weaknesses as preparation for the new school year 2021 – 2022,” the Ministry said.
Schools have been restricted from face-to-face learning since March of 2020, and only recently had some schools held phased reopenings in preparation for the upcoming school year. Some schools had to close shortly after reopening, as several students and teachers became infected with COVID-19.
The Ministry of Education continues to work with all stakeholders in an attempt to ensure that the upcoming school year is as safe as possible, which includes making COVID vaccines available to teachers as a priority group.
