Kingston College students work on an assignment in class while observing social distancing requirements amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Students at Kingston College (KC) appear to be adjusting well to the 'new normal' brought on by restrictions to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Schools reopened last week to allow students sitting exit exams to finalise their preparations.

On a Loop News visit to KC last week, school principal Dave Myrie told our news team that the institution's leadership prepared for weeks to welcome students back to the classroom in a safe way.



He said classes have been staggered to ensure that only those students who are taking classes are on the campus.

Erected signs, desks spaced six feet apart and hand washing stations were among the other measures our news team observed across the school.

According to Myrie, while the students have been generally compliant with the new requirements, there has been some challenges with boys complying with the physical distance guidelines. He said,in response, more resources have been deployed to monitor students.
