Students in Hanoi's suburban districts and townships to come back to schools from November 8 (09:45 04/11/2021)
Accordingly, students of the fifth, sixth, ninth, tenth and twelfth grades in the city's 18 suburban districts and townships labeled "green zones", will be the first to return to in-person classes.
The remaining grades, and students from the metropolitan districts, will continue learning online. Kindergartens will remain closed too.
The municipal government requested schools with students living in different areas of the city to monitor the regulations of where their students reside, as they may differ from those that apply to the school.
The schools must meet the safety requirements according to Guidance No. 3668/HDLN:SGDDT-SYT of the Department of Education and Training and the Department of Health, while working out detailed plans to ensure the distance between students and the number of students in each class.
Teachers who have not received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine are not allowed to teach in-person classes.
To ensure safety for students, the localities and schools are required to strictly implement COVID-19 prevention and control rules in line with the interdisciplinary guidance.
Classes must be disinfected, antiseptic solutions and electronic thermometers must be made available, and teachers need to be trained to handle students showing COVID-19 symptoms.
The municipal authorities asked the schools not to serve meals at school, only teach one session a day and combine with online teaching.
During the process, the district-level Steering committee for COVID-19 Prevention and Control will suspend in-person learning if there are more infection cases to ensure the safety of students and teachers.
