Parents in Trans Nzoia have urged the ministry of education to make sure that all of the schools that served as polling places and tallying centers during the general election are fumigated as soon as students return to the establishments today.
The chairman of the Trans Nzoia Parents Association, Wellington Waliaula, exclusively told K24 Digital that the majority of the nation's schools had been overcrowded and that it would be dangerous to let pupils return before fumigating them.
"We are aware that COVID-19 is still present, and we should protect our children from the risk of exposing them to the very contagious illness. Waliaula urged the ministry of education to act quickly and fumigate every classroom in our schools. He also advised school administrators not to return pupils who owed fees home.
Most parents may not have enough money right now. I want to implore administrators and head teachers to be kind and give pupils a break till they can pay off their outstanding fees," he said.
During the two weeks that the pupils were at home, Caroline Wekesa, a parent in the Matisi area, requested that the school administrators make some adjustments and deduct the school fees that were not used.
"It will be fair if the principals lower the amount of money we have to pay in school fees because our kids have been home for the past two weeks. Wekesa stated, "We shouldn't pay the full sum for term two.
In order to prevent overload when the regular academic calendar begins the next year, she also urged instructors to make use of the remaining time to complete the remaining syllabus.
"We understand that the regular academic schedule will resume after this year. We ask teachers to make sure their students complete the remaining course material before then," she continued.
