150,000 students in HCM City return to school after 7 months at home

About 150,000 students in grades 9 and 12 in Ho Chi Minh City returned to school after seven months studying online because of the Covid-19 outbreak.

Nguyen Van Hieu, Director of the HCM City Department of Education and Training, said the agency and the local Department of Health sent 15 working teams to inspect the implementation of measures to ensure safety for students at schools.

Hieu said during the two weeks of trial, ensuring health safety will be the key task. If Covid-19 cases are detected, teachers will observe and handle the situation without causing panic. For these 2 weeks, there will be less emphasis on teaching.

If there is an outbreak at a school, as most students have been vaccinated, students will be informed, and measures will be taken under the regulations of the Health Ministry. The class with suspected cases will switch to online teaching.

According to the HCM City Department of Education and Training, about 88,000 9th graders and 66,000 12th graders were allowed by their parents to go to school directly on December 13, reaching the rate of 88 per cent.
