Select Public Schools to Reopen After Six-Month Covid-19 Closure

The Education Ministry will allow grade 9 and 12 students from one public high school in Phnom Penh, and students across four provinces deemed “low-risk” for Covid-19 transmission, to head back to classrooms in just over a week, following six months of shuttered schools.

The ministry this week decided to allow freshmen and seniors at the capital’s Bak Touk High School — the campus with the most grade 12 students in the country — to reopen from September 7 as a trial for other public schools, according to a ministry post on Facebook.

Reopened schools will operate both in the classroom and online, based on a school’s existing resources, and staff and students must follow hygiene guidelines set by the Health Ministry, the statement said.
