KUCHING:  Police personnel from Kuching District Police Headquarters (IPD Kuching) led by acting Kuching police chief Supt Merbin Lisa yesterday visited SMK Batu Lintang to check on the school’s compliance with the standard operating procedure (SOP) set by the Ministry of Education for school reopening under the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO).

At the school, Merbin met the school’s principal Bahtiar Affendi who brought them to see the measures the school had adopted to comply with the SOP.

Among the places they checked were the main gate to the school, where temperature of the students, teachers and staff is taken, teachers’ room, isolation room and classrooms.

“The school hall is reserved for contingency.

“For example, when it rains students will gather there where their body temperature will be taken while adhering to social distancing before they are allowed to go to their respective classrooms,” said Merbin in a press statement yesterday.

SMK Batu Lintang has a total of 1,368 students from Form One to Form Six – 369 in Form Five and Six. It has 115 teachers.

Yesterday, saw all schools in the state reopened only for Form Five and Six students, after they were closed for about three months due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the subsequent Movement Control Order (MCO).

The SOP for schools stipulates social distancing during all activities, washing of hands regularly, setting up social distancing markings in classrooms, screening of body temperature, cleaning and disinfecting school furniture and facilities, wearing of face mask, constant update on hygiene and safety measures, encouraging students and staff to register at MySejahtera and other health protocols.

The police team also visited several other schools under the jurisdiction of IPD Kuching.

Among them was IPD Kuching Crime Prevention and Community Safety Division head DSP Dayang Rahmah
