The Ministry of Health will present an outline for canceling the capsules in fourth grades, and if the morbidity does not increase within 10 days, it is recommended to cancel them in grades five through six as well.
Will capsule learning be canceled in fourth grades and up?
Health Minister Yuli (Yoel) Edelstein will today (Thursday) bring to the approval of the Corona Ministerial Committee an outline formulated by senior Ministry of Health officials after consultation with the national parent leadership.
According to the outline details in fourth grades, similar to the practice in grades 1-3, the capsules will be eliminated.
As soon as it becomes clear, after 10 days, that the cancellation of the capsules did not increase the morbidity - the capsules will also be canceled in the fifth-sixth grades.
In addition, according to the outline in grades 7-10, it will be possible for students to move between four capsules, instead of between two as is the practice today.
This will allow students to switch between more majors.
Classes that operate in accordance with the "Education Shield" will study without capsules.
In addition, in the entire education system, the obligation to declare parents and measure temperature at the entrance to the school will be abolished.
Health Minister Edelstein: "Education is the most important thing and we make every effort to open the maximum possible to the minimum risk to students. Remember that apart from grades 11-12, students are not vaccinated and we must protect their health. I thank the parents and senior Ministry of Health. For the benefit of all Israeli students. "
