Schools handed six guidelines ahead of possible July reopening

The Public Health Ministry has issued six guidelines to schools nationwide on how to guard against the spread of Covid-19 among students and staff once they reopen.

 

The government is considering allowing schools in infection-free areas to open in July.

 

“The first point that must be emphasised is preventing the spread of Covid-19 and other germs by setting up screening checkpoints at all entrances to check for fever and other symptoms,” said Department of Health director-general Dr Panpimol Wipulakorn on Friday (May 29). “Furthermore, schools must stick to strict rules on wearing face masks and washing hands frequently, as well as providing adequate alcohol gel or hand-washing stations.”

 

Panpimol said that each class should have no more than 20-25 students in order to maintain a distance of at least 1 metre between students. “This will pose a challenge for schools as normally each classroom has around 40 students,” she added. “Schools may employ an alternate study schedule where half of the students study online at home while the other half attend the school, and then switch at a suitable interval.”

 

“The second point is to prepare lessons and learning materials that are suitable for both classroom and online learning, to ensure that no student’s education is hindered during the Covid-19 situation,” said Panpimol.

 

“The third point is to give underprivileged and disabled children the same learning opportunities as other students by providing suitable protection equipment or specialised tools to facilitate their education both at home and in school.”

 

The fourth point is to protect the safety and welfare of children from families who have become ill with or are under investigation for Covid-19. Measures must be taken to ensure that affected students are not excluded from their peer group.

 

The fifth point is to provide infrastructure in schools to prevent the spread of the virus, including additional hand-washing sinks, partitions in cafeterias, and rearrangement of classrooms, hallways and communal areas to maintain social distancing.

 

“The sixth point that school should focus on is administration of their budgets, as these measures will increase the financial burden on the school and possibly on parents,” said Panpimol.

 

“Schools must make sure they are financially sound before reopening so they can ensure uninterrupted operations until the end of the semester.”

 

Panpimol urged schools to perform a self-evaluation online at https://stopcovid.anamai.moph.go.th/, where they can check whether or not they are ready to open during the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

How do you take these schools they way they are built and put spacing in between students.  Not gong to work.

 

I fore see that some schools will go under too bad.   

The government fails to realize that a lot of the schools are also the baby sitters for the kids while mom and dad are working.  There is no way they can take Matayom studetns and say stay home and learn on line.  Do they really think that kids will do that or will they be out onthe streets knowing that even if they do nothing they will still pass.

It is amazing how the same agenda is rolled out world wide

with the same nonsense excuse !!!

They are traumatising the children - the harm that is done is unbelievable !

 

With the known data about the virus this is just insanity !

The virus is not more dangerous than a common flu - and that's SCIENCE as of now !!!

 

I hope these criminals who do that much harm to children will go to jail !

Just like all the others driving this agenda [Politicians, Journalists, Scientists and all the other idiots supporting this nonsense]

The numbers speak for itself ... the REAL numbers - not the ones in the media

NOT every kid has a 100% working immune system, right?  They have all been tested and can I see the results????

 

parents worry about their kids, of course.  

 

over 500,000 people have died, likely many more,  AND AND AND:::::

 

The kids can be carriers and then their PARENTS die...

 

80%ish don't show symptoms.  

 

It's 100% understandable to be worried.  The question will be, "How dramatic are the measures to protect lives?"  

 

If one mask is lowered, will the entire school go on lock down.  one cough, lock down the city?  never leave your desk.  don't touch anything.  no phones, except to take pictures of farang teachers not wearing mask while eating and if farangs look tired quarantine...   That's the question....

Very difficult. If they can open schools, then they can open the go go bars as well. We all know there cannot be complete safety and social distancing. This even applies to markets, supermarkets and transportation. Cleaning every 5 seconds and guaranteeing a sneeze will not blow out from the mask because of the pressure from the sneeze air velocity is impossible. Even the schools limiting to 20 kids per room is impossible. If they want kids at school how about rotate them by 1/4 groups. 10 per day and the rest will sit on line at home. Fridays is only on line for all the kids, so each group gets 1 day per week in class. Homework would be everyday. We all already know the learning system in the schools in not very good anyway. Who knows, but I really want my daughter to be able to go to school for her last year in Mathayom. At least enjoy some of it.

So is when the schools reconvene a national or provincial decision?

 

I ask as the wife is convinced Monday will see the return of students in the village high school on June 1, according to the poo yai's tannoy anouncements. (I would note her English and in particular, dates is not good).

 

Two days ago we did see many uniformed schoolkids on a trip to the city?

 

I guess we willl see on Monday morning as many have to pass our house on the way to school.

I would say the possibly on parents bit is a forgone conclusion 🤔

Ever considered that after a school day those kids go home, where not everyone is of school age?

So let them go to 7/11, take them shopping, go have a meal somewhere with then just don't send them to school

She looks like a barrel of laughs. There is no way that any of these children in my village are going to do online learning. They have no computer, no suitable area, parents have no money, no internet access it costs money, no discipline, no one will supervise, it will not and does not happen. And I imagine the same goes for large swathes of the country. What planet are they on?

 

It looks to be like another example of paying a large amount of lip service to a notion, ie opening the schools safely with distancing and measures etc and then just opening them pretty much in the old way. And therein lies the rub as there seems to be little infection if any in the sticks, they will get away with it.
