PUBLIC SCHOOLS BEGIN TO REOPEN
As of this week, many schools in England were given the all clear to open to all students, though parents remain wary of sending their children back to school.
Whilst in some areas, schools have remained closed to non-essential worker children, many schools have opened to children in reception, year 1 and year 6 after many have missed over 10 weeks of in-school learning.
The reopening comes as a result of easing of lockdown rules that include groups of 6 people from different households being able to meet, at a distance of course.
Schools have stayed open despite lockdown as a result of the coronavirus for children of key workers such as NHS workers and children that may be vulnerable, but as of today all students are allowed to return to school for distanced learning.
Classrooms have been seen to have been entirely changed around and reorganized with rows of desks facing the front of the classrooms rather than being pushed together as they would normally be.
Practices of regular hand-washing and sanitization continue to be encouraged.
