All Denbighshire primary school pupils and secondary school pupils in years 11 and 13 will return to school on Monday (March 15).
Before the Easter break the remaining secondary school year groups will have the opportunity to attend school and individual schools will communicate their arrangements with parents and carers.
Denbighshire County Council is reminding parents and guardians to follow guidance around schools which includes not to mix while picking up and dropping off children at the school gates, to wear face coverings and to maintain social distancing.
Cllr Huw Hilditch-Roberts, the Council’s Lead Member for Education, Children's Services and Public Engagement, said: “More pupils retuning to face-to-face learning is good news for our young people. I would like to reassure parents and guardians that all necessary safety measures are in place in our schools.
“To keep schools open and ensure the safety of pupils, it is vital parents and guardians follow the rules and guidelines to stop the spread of coronavirus.
“This includes children not meeting up outside of school, even when children are in the same school bubble.
“Parents and guardians need to wear face coverings when picking up and dropping off their children at the school gates and are reminded not to catch up with other parents and to maintain social distancing rules.
“Children must also be kept off school if they are unwell, even if you are not sure if it is coronavirus, and you should book a coronavirus test if your child develops any of the symptoms, even if they are mild.
“It has been a very difficult period for pupils, staff and parents and it is important everyone follows these guidelines to protect our communities and to keep schools open.”
