Parents call for ensuring health guidelines

Authorities in Dinajpur are all set to reopen educational institutions on Sunday after being closed since March last year for the pandemic.

Parents have called on the school authorities to ensure that academic activities are conducted in line with the health directives by the government.  

Due to the 18-month-long closure, the classrooms, playgrounds and surrounding areas of the educational institutions had gathered dust and waste.

However, authorities at the schools and colleges have already cleaned the premises and taken steps to ensure hygiene. The government has ordered the institutions to keep handheld thermometers and hand sanitizers or hand-washing spots at the ready.

“All the classrooms have been washed and cleaned. Academic activities will resume in line with the hygiene rules. Students will be given masks,” said Headteacher Nezamul Islam of the Dinajpur Municipal High School.

District Education Officer Md Rafiqul Islam said that schools and colleges have been notified about the government’s reopening guidelines as per the deadline set by the Education Ministry.

"We will be monitoring the activities closely to make sure they follow the guidelines," said District Primary Education Officer Swapan Kumar Chowdhury.

There are nearly 3,000 educational institutions in the northern district, according to education department officials.
They include 1,870 primary schools, 651 secondary schools, 296 madrasas, 93 higher secondary colleges and 50 vocational or technical educational institutions.
