Standard Operating Procedures to guide re-opening of schools

The Ministry of Primary and Secondary Education with technical support from the Ministry of Health and Child Care, has developed these Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) meant to guide senior and middle management, school level leadership, teachers, learners, and all stakeholders on how to conduct business in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic. These SOPs provide clear and actionable guidance for safe operations through the prevention, early detection and control of COVID-19 in schools and other educational facilities. It is also important to ensure care is taken to avoid stigmatizing students and staff who may have been exposed to the virus The SOPS have already been dispatched to schools with an accompanying Secretary's Circular No. 10 of 2020 which explains their application.
