No parent is under pressure to send their child to campus if they feel unsafe: Saeed Ghani

KARACHI (Dunya News) - Schools across Sindh have reopened for middle and primary classes from today (Monday) with strict implementation of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

According to details, after a pause of more than six months all public and private schools have reopened for grade one to eight. Strict implementation of SOPs was also ensured at entry points of schools.

Sindh Education Minister Saeed Ghani stressed coronavirus-related standard operating procedures (SOPs) and precautionary measures once again, warning that strict action would be taken against all private and public educational institutions who failed to implement such measures.

He appealed to parents to ensure their children comply with these measures as well.

No parent, however, is under pressure to send their child to campus if they feel unsafe in the current situation, according to the provincial minister. Nor is any school compelled to resume activity on campus if they are not prepared.

It is pertinent to mention here that in first phase universities, colleges and school for ninth and tenth grade were allowed to reopen from September 15. Middle schools reopened from September 23 across the country except Sindh.
