Saudi Arabia determines groups excluded from attending schools

Ibtisam Al-Shehri, the Saudi Ministry of Education’s official spokeswoman for public education, announced the students who have been barred from attending lessons.

“There is a group of students who have health conditions approved by the Public Health Authority (prevention), and their studies will be conducted remotely to preserve their safety,” Al-Shehri stated during a joint press conference with the Ministry of Health.

Al-Shehri stated that the schools are ready to accommodate kids and that the requirements for a safe educational journey have been met.

Sterilizers, masks, and distance instructions were provided, and all cautious precautions were taken to guarantee that students returned safely.

Students in 11 classes

The Public Health Authority (Weqaya), for its part, acknowledged that 11 types of kids with ailments are barred from attending school for children under the age of 12.

Type 1 diabetes, severe obesity, underweight; congenital heart and vascular disease, chronic lung illness, chronic kidney disease, muscle and neurological disease, anemia, immune-related disease, and hereditary disease are among the several categories.

Weqaya added that children with siblings who have significant risk factors for any of these diseases, or children whose siblings or parents are not eligible for Corona immunizations, are not allowed to attend.

Students are permitted to leave the classroom during recess if the classes are divided and taken out at different intervals, according to the authority.

With the provision of containers near each group, the square will be split by class, so that each area is assigned for a single class, and the groups will not mix.

Meals will continue to be distributed in schools, and meals will be allowed in the classroom.
