Basseterre, St. Kitts, September 9, 2020 (ZIZ News):BHS Students returned to the classroom on Wednesday morning to begin a new school year under Covid-19 restrictions.

Like other government schools Basseterre High reopened on Wednesday welcoming back students after being closed for about five months due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Chief Education Officer Dr. Debbie Isaac was on site to greet the students and wish them the best for the new academic year.
As the students get ready for face to face lessons, there are new several changes in how classes are conducted and the overall general operations at the school.
Firstly students must be registered at the gate, recording their name, class, temperature, and any symptoms they are experiencing.
Deputy Principal, John Samuel told ZIZ News that students will now be in school for half as long as before under a new shift system.
He said to reduce the size of the classes each form has been split into zones as well.
Mr. Samuel said while everyone is apparently happy to be back in the school again they must still be vigilant.
