COVID-19 Back to School Plan
In light of the Government of Ghana’s decision to reopen schools, we are providing in-person learning opportunities for Merton International pupils. We recognize the importance of in-person learning to a child’s emotional and psychological well-being and social development and we are glad to be able to provide this service to the Merton Family. At the same time, we recognize that given the nature of the pandemic in-person learning poses challenges to our community. As such, we’ve detailed the various options that we seek to provide our Parents as well as the measures we’re taking to ensure the safety of all members of our community.
Learning options during the COVID-19 pandemic
- In-Person Learning: physical learning delivered by Merton teachers
- Virtual Learning Program: we provide teaching materials and content for Children to learn alongside a guardian at home.
What we are doing to protect our community
- We have installed several easy-to-use washing stations around our compound
- All individuals present on our compound are obligated to wear masks and have their temperatures checked
- We have created seating arrangements that allow us to observe social safety protocols
- We regularly disinfect our premise.
