Teachers in Nandi have reported back to their respective schools in accordance with the TSC directive, in order to prepare for possible reopening. In high schools like Kapsabet Boys, Chepterit Girls, Kapsabet Girls and some of the primary schools like Nandi primary, Kapsabet township and Tegat, teachers started streaming back since Friday last week.
Among the activities going on in the institutions include general sanitations, preparing classrooms to meet the social distancing requirement, installation of enough water points for hand washing among others.
Despite the anticipation for schools to reopen, President Uhuru Kenyatta during his 12th address to the nation on the Covid-19 pandemic at KICC said schools will only resume classes if the safety of learners is guaranteed. He said the question should be how they’ll reopen, not when, and that more direction on the same will be given.
