Seoul Education Superintendent Cho Hee-yeon announces guidelines for school operations.
Seoul's education office has issued additional guidelines ahead of the reopening of schools this week.
Seoul Education Superintendent Cho Hee-yeon disclosed on Monday a more detailed scheme amid continued calls for a further postponement of the reopening over fears that COVID-19 could spread among students.
Under the guidelines, high school seniors will return to classes on Wednesday as scheduled, and the office has recommended students in their first and second years of high school to attend classes biweekly.
As for elementary and middle school students, both remote and face-to-face classes could be carried out upon the discretion of each school.
To ensure safety, Cho said each school will have at least one thermal imaging camera, and masks will be distributed to students and teachers.
Students are also required to submit daily health background checks online for a week before returning to school.
After high school seniors, who will return to classrooms on Wednesday, other grades will gradually follow suit through June 8.
