The Ministry of Education has announced its decision on the functioning of schools from 27th June to the 1st of July.

The Ministry said schools in cities and suburbs that were closed last week must reopen over three days, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, between 7:30 AM and 1:30 PM in the coming week.

According to a statement issued by the ministry, primary sections of these schools will function at the discretion of respective principals.

Meanwhile, the schools, where the students, teachers, and principals are not affected by transportation issues are instructed to continue in-person lessons.

However, if any teacher is facing transportation issues, the principals are allowed to make flexible timetables for them without penalising their holidays.
