The country's educational institutions will reopen from today, September 12 after being closed for about 1.5 years due to the global corona epidemic. The authorities have made all kinds of preparations to make the schools and colleges suitable for teaching.
Deputy Commissioner Mohammad Mominur Rahman visited the Government National Primary School and Jamalkhan Dr. Khastagir Government Girls' High School adjacent to DC Hill in the city on Saturday morning.
He said all educational institutions in the country were closed for the last one and a half years due to the Covid-19 epidemic. The government has decided to reopen the educational institutions from September 12 as the infection has been gradually reduced. Students will start class activities following fullhealth rules. I am inspecting every educational institution by forming committees at metropolitan, district and upazila level. Educational institutions and surroundings have been kept clean and sanitized. The classrooms have been kept fully prepared with bathroom cleaning.
A washbook has been set up in front of the school so that students can wash their hands with soap and sanitize and enter the school or classroom. Disinfectants have been sprayed on school benches. Everyone will wear a mask and one student will sit on each bench while maintaining physical distance.
The way the preparation has been done, we hope that with the launch of the educational institution, the students and the respected teachers will be able to continue the educational activities in accordance with their health rules.
This requires the cooperation of all.
He said that Upazila Nirbahi Officers at the Upazila level, Assistant Commissioners (Land) and Executive Magistrates of the District Administration at the Metropolitan level have visited the educational institutions and expressed their views as useful for teaching over the last two days.
The Ministry of Education has issued a circular specifically on the duties of teachers, students and parents when educational institutions are started.
According to the circular, committees formed at metropolitan, district and upazila levels will intensify monitoring activities. The Covid epidemic will gradually decrease, and we will be able to continue our educational activities by ensuring the health protection of all teachers, students and parents. The deputy commissioner urged the parents not to quarrel in front of the school.
