COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted our lives since March 2021, forcing on and off school closures pertaining to the overall Coronavirus situation in the province.
Research has shown that ventilation and distancing are crucial to stopping the spread of the virus. Maktab’s 3.5-acre campus was designed for only 300 students. Each classroom has excellent airflow with over 150 square feet of openable windows. It is rare for any school in Lahore to have such luxuries. Hence Maktab’s extraordinarily spacious and green campus, exceptionally small class size, well-ventilated classrooms, make it a school with a safe and healthy environment, especially in these current times.
These have been extremely challenging and trying times for a unique school such as Maktab, as its main focus has always been on academics, sports, and extracurricular activities. We have risen up to the challenge and blazed a new trail in online learning despite many constraints and limitations.
Maktab consults WHO and covid.gov.pk as our official sources of information regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Our health and safety requirements meet and, in many instances, exceed those set by the Punjab Government and Education Department. We will update our protocols as needed, based on their evolving guidance and will notify families, faculty, and staff accordingly.
Returning to physical/ in-person school is important for the well-being of many of our students, and a return to greater normalcy will lay the groundwork for an easier transition in the upcoming new academic session in coming August.
