Our Children especially Grade 4 pupils are at a high risk of getting COVID 19 as it is extremely hard for them to observe the COVID regulations like social distancing, personal hygiene, and sanitizing hands frequently. The spread of COVID in this caliber of students is a time bomb as they will share masks and will not social distance as required. We are already having this problem in our estates, what will happen when they are in a school where 4 teachers might be looking after 250 children? The idea of having Grade 4 children back to school is in bad taste for profitable gains from some individuals that should not be allowed under any circumstances. And if it has to go on, then the Government and the schools should be charged with the responsibility of footing the pupil's medical costs that will arise from COVID-19 infections. Treatment and testing should be footed by the said parties in full without delay as COVID is a deadly disease. I believe Grade 4 students should remain off school until such a time we are sure about the COVID infections in our school. Let us not use our children as a testing ground. They are vulnerable and can always resume class at a later date.
