Grades 1, 2 and pre-schools to reopen on August 10

All preschools and Grade 1 and 2 classes of schools will reopen on August 10, Education Minister Dullas Alahapperuma announced.

The Minister said that this matter was discussed at length at the Cabinet meeting held today.

He said President Gotabaya Rajapaksa has given instructions to the Education Ministry, Provincial Education Ministries and all Local Government bodies to carefully look into the disinfection processes at schools.

The Education Ministry in a press release requested the parents, teachers and principals to make sure that children follow the safety precautions and the health guidelines prepared in the wake of COVID-19.

The Ministry last month decided to open schools under several stages.

Under the first stage, all teachers and Principals were requested to report to schools for initial preparations from last Monday (June 29).
Under the second stage, Grade 13, Grade 11 and Grade 5 students are requested to attend school next Monday (6).

The schools will reopen for Grade 10 and 12 students on July 20, and for Grade 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, and 9 on July 27.
