Canteens to remain closed once schools reopen

The Education Ministry has informed all school heads countrywide that their canteens should remain closed once schools reopen on June 29. In a circular, the ministry has stated that school heads should inform parents to prepare homemade food for their children.

The reason for this action is to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus among schoolchildren. Furthermore, the government would not resume their meal supply to primary schools as well, Kurunegala District Senior Education Director W.M. Balasooriya told the Daily News yesterday.
