As we know we are dealing with the unknown devil we have to protect ourselves and our loved ones. With that being said the department of higher education prioritized that only 33% of students can return to campuse mainly the final year, students needing laboratories and those to engage in their practical in labs. It is hard to understand what are the reasons behind taking children which are between age of 5 and  6 (GRADE R) back to school whereas they are not able to take care of themselves. Does it make sense for a parent who is sitting at home waiting for lockdown levels to reach level 1 before going to work again, to take their young children to school especially when its winter season and the pandemic is about to reach its peak? No i dont think so. As parents we cannot burry our children Grade R's are too young to be exposed while older ones are told to stay home and be safe. I wish this request can be considered GRADE R cannot return to school now.As parents it is our responsibility to ensure safety of our loved ones. Our childrens lives matters.I wish this request can be considered GRADE R cannot return to school now. Please just relook at the decision taken.
