Concerned parents and community members have staged a picket in Wellington against the reopening of schools.
Learners in several grades, including one, two and 11 are expected to return on Monday.
A spokesperson for the Wellington School Governing Body Forum, Kenny Williams, says they have only seen about 50 percent attendance by
learners and teachers in grades seven and 12 this past month.
"We want to stay at home, make sure we're keeping away from this virus, as the government asked from us.
But by reopening the schools we're giving the virus a chance into our communities.
And we can't allow that.
