Jakarta to Continue For Trial Face-to-Face Classes in Schools

Deputy Jakarta Governor Ahmad Riza Patria has announced that schools in the capital will continue the second stage trial period of face-to-face classes from June 9 to 26,.

“The limited face-to-face classes are an invaluable in educating the public on health protocols [in schools],“ said the Gerindra Party politician on Tuesday of the schools, which are gearing up for the 2021-2022 school year next July.

However, State Elementary School No. 08 or Kenari Elementary School decided to stop face-to-face classes, after school principal Hardi Priyono and two teachers recently tested positive for Covid-19.

“One of the teachers showed symptoms of Covid-19 and was confirmed positive for the coronavirus,” Hardi said. “We then tested [Kenari School’s] faculty and staff, then found that a teacher and myself also tested positive [for Covid-19].”

He added that none of the students tested positive for Covid-19.

Jakarta has carried out the second stage trial period for face-to-face classes in 226 schools which passed the Jakarta Education Services and Covid-19 Task Force’s assessment.

However, three schools, including Kenari Elementary School, halted face-to-face classes for various reasons, ranging from their proximity to red zones, and teachers testing positive for Covid-19.
