The education ministry has however permitted the administrative wings of the school to start working in the office. The employees are however obliged to follow the Standard operating procedure or SOPs published on 14th April by the Government of Pakistan.

The permission is given by the education ministry so that the school should carry on its administrative activities like collection of the fees and dispatch of salaries to everyone who is working for a particular school.

One thing that school management is to maintain strictly is the social distancing norm and besides that only 2 people are allowed to stay in the office at a time. The schools will not open and get fully functional until further notice.
