Around 600,000 kindergartners in Hanoi will return to school starting April 13, the municipal People’s Committee said Friday afternoon.

With their return, all students and kindergartners in the capital would be back in school after staying home for months due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Students from first to sixth grade in the city returned to school Wednesday, with attendance of around 93.7 percent, according to the Hanoi Department of Education and Training.

The kindergartners would return to class with parents’ consent.

If the Covid-19 situation worsens and students cannot study in school safely, the local Steering Committees for Covid-19 Prevention and Control would consider suspending in-person classes.

Hanoi currently has around 1,145 kindergartens with around 600,000 kindergartners. The capital has kept kindergartners home due to the Covid-19 pandemic for the longest time among all Vietnam localities, since April 2021.
