Hanoi makes last minute change to high school reopening plan

Only twelfth graders will return to school Monday, the rest of the students in the capital city, apart from ninth graders in suburban areas, will continue with online lessons.

Hanoi’s education department on Sunday decided to change the previously announced school reopening plan as many Covid-19 community transmissions have been detected in the last few days, making it risky for students.

From Monday, only twelfth graders will return to school, with 50 percent having in-person classes Monday, Wednesday and Friday; and the rest having them on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. High schools, vocational and continuing education facilities in low or medium coronavirus risk areas, are allowed to reopen.

Grade nine students in 18 suburban districts will continue to have in-person lessons, and students in all other grades will keep having online classes. Preschool children will also stay at home.

Many high schools in the capital city had already postponed their reopening amid the pandemic’s resurgence.

Under the previous decision by the Hanoi People's Committee, high schools were to reopen for on-site classes from Dec. 6, except for those located in Pho Hue, Kham Thien, and Trung Phung wards.

But, with the city recording hundreds of new infections every day in recent days, many schools decided to postpone their reopening.
