back to school covid 19

Returning to the school is no more the same as it was before the pandemic. It has now gained very meaning for schools, parents, and students. Since we are still fighting the pandemic, schools & colleges and, parents, and students must take extra caution to restrict the risk and spread of COVID-19. Every school board and government official is now working hard on creating a new set of regulations for both schools and colleges to follow if they are planning to get back to operation. 

Here, we being one of the colleges that are starting the regular classes and operations, is going to share with you a few tips that we strictly recommend the students to follow. So, let’s begin – 

Before discussing the instructions that every student needs to follow, let’s discuss what precautions we are following to keep you safe. We have taken extra caution while sanitizing the premises, ensuring all the teachers and staff members are vaccinated and follow the necessary precautions like wearing marks, sanitizing hands, etc. All our faculty members have been tested for the COVID-19. 

Coming back to the tips every student need to follow while coming back to school during COVID-19

If you are among the students who are planning to come back to school, here are the tips that you need to follow. 

1. Get back into a routine

When it comes to routines, they are crucial for every student. Without a proper routine, every day can become chaos, and this is why it is so important that you, if are considering getting back to school, get yourself into a routine. This is not a new thing, but we understand how it can become a challenge post-pandemic since you have a lost the feeling. Improve your wake-up schedule, breakfast time, etc., if you consider getting back to WCC or your school.

2. Consult your faculty if you are facing any issue 

Be it any issue that you are facing while you are back to school, you can consult one of the faculty members as they are there to help you. Even if you are feeling anxious or overwhelmed with the changes, make sure you start talking about it as it would help. 

3. Stay Flexible 

Another thing that you need to do is stay flexible. Remember that we all are on the same boat, struggling to build a safe and secure environment to get back to the school. Keep your mind open to adapt to all the changes you might encounter while you are back at your school. For instance, we at WCC have administered a few changes in scheduling the classes. So, be open and flexible to adapt to the changes made to your schedule and school overall. 

4. Maintaining proper hygiene 

Another essential thing to take care of while going back to school during COVID-19 is to ensure your hygiene is well maintained. Always keep a sanitizer with you, do not forget to wear a mask, and keep a safe distance from one another. 

5. Get Vaccinated 

This is the first thing you need to do while getting back to school during COVID-19 – Get Vaccinated. We at WCC have a policy that restricts the entry of any student who is not vaccinated. So, make sure you get your vaccination done right away. 


In the end, we would like to say that it is essential that we all take care of all these rules and follow all the regulations to build a safe environment for you to study. At WCC, we have made sure that you remain safe. So, let’s get back to the new normal.
