(CNS): All government schools across the three islands, including primary, secondary, the Lighthouse School and Little Cayman Education Services, will reopen for students on 30 August, the Department of Education Services (DES) has said. Year 12 students enrolled at the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre (CIFEC) are required to go to the school for consultation and guidance based on the first letter of their surname from 30 August.

However, before the first day of school, new students and those transferring from another school must attend Orientation Day and parents must accompany them. Officials said this is mandatory for any student entering a government school for the first time so they can successfully integrate into their new learning environment.

The dates for Orientation Day in the various schools are as follows:

    CIFEC your plan of sessions based on surnames is excellent. Based on numbers even classes also based on surnames morning evening sessions will reduce overcrowding. Same to other schools.

    Glad to see schools open. For now until borders r open it could be normal school functioning. But when borders r open few sugestions.
    1. Only vaccinated teachers in class room.
    2. Separate classes for vaccinated and umvaccinated above 12 yrs
    3. Temp and any cold symptoms monitoring and testing. Once any positive whole class quarantine
    4.sports and gatherings of same class students
    5. Standard measures of distancing sanitization mask to continue
    May be for about 3 months and see.
    Plan now Educate the public in preparation to opening borders.

    I often see full size school buses arriving at CIFEC early in the morning with only 6 students on board and occasionally only 3.Has the Dept of Education considered using mini buses or would this upset the contract holders?.
