Experts fear that schools will face delays in January if Boris Johnson does not reduce the Isolation to five days to bring teachers back to their desks.
He urged the Prime Minister to do all he can to ensure that students no longer miss face-to-face study due to the isolation of domestic staff.
School leaders have already warned that staffing levels will be “too difficult” when the new term begins – meaning that homework will make a comeback for thousands of children.
Calls for an end to isolation follow a series of numerous positive studies showing that omiciron is milder than other strains, with the UK’s first official report showing that the likelihood of hospitalization is 50 to 70% lower than in Delta.
Health officials have repeatedly said that Kovid booster shots protect against omega-3s and provide a better chance of surviving the epidemic.
The Sons Jobs Army Campaign is helping to get the extra important vaccines in the hands of the British to avoid further restrictions.
Extending the Christmas holidays in schools can be a nightmare for parents.
Working mothers and fathers may have no choice but to pay for their children’s care, work from home, or take a vacation together.
Some primary and secondary schools have already sent their children home with textbooks and laptops, if staff shortages force them to self-impose closures.
There is likely to be some disruption in teaching until at least Easter – and retired teachers are requested to return to work.

Earlier this week, the United States reduced the isolation period to five days for people who tested positive for covid, but showed no symptoms or had already recovered.
Robert Halfone, the influential chairman of the Education Select Committee, said: “All the energy of the Ministry of Education and Boris aims to keep children in school.
“If reducing isolation days, as the United States has done, makes a difference and prevents schools from closing, that should be the first priority.
“We’m talking about protecting the NHS, and I totally agree, but what about protecting the future of our children?
“If the catch-up programs are working, the last thing we want is to send the kids home. “
Similarly, people who receive negative lateral flow results on the sixth or seventh day of their self-isolation period – when tests are performed 24 hours apart – no longer need to stay at home for the entire 10 days.
If reducing isolation days, as the United States does, is making a difference and preventing schools from closing, it should be a priority.

Sir John Bell, a professor of medicine at Oxford University and a member of the Vaccine Task Force, supported the reduction of isolation.
He told Times Radio: ‘I have to say that the British people are the most experienced and efficient users of lateral flow tests on the planet.
“Everyone checked, children checked, health workers checked, people on the street checked.
“So we have to use it to our advantage, especially with the quarantine measures we have right now, which is a very bad tool, which really means that some of our major essential services cannot work. “
On Tuesday, Health Minister Gillian Keegan confirmed that the government was considering isolation for five days instead of the current seven.
She said: “We considered it, which is why we went from 10 days to seven days.
“So today, on the sixth and seventh day, if your test is negative, your isolation period will end. That’s what we did for the time being. “
Keep children in the classroom
Chris Hopson, chief executive of NHS Providers, said the decision to reduce the period from seven to five days was a “dangerous decision” for the government.
He said Kovid’s absence was now having a significant impact on the entire economy and parts of the health care service.
Mr Hopson added: “If the rate of staff shortages increases, the pressure to change during the isolation period will inevitably increase. “
Mr Hobson added: “As always, this is a dangerous decision for the government to make.
“Every day brings more data and more evidence that will allow for a better decision.

With no new measures introduced until January 1, Job’s memorial deployment in the UK saved New Year’s night.
Speaking for the first time since the Christmas holidays, the Prime Minister said yesterday that the growing number of vaccines in the UK was the reason why England had to afford the illegal December in December.
But he urged those who have not been vaccinated to get their first or second boosters now to avoid a lockdown after January 1 – as omiciron cases are on the rise.
During a visit to a vaccination center, the Prime Minister urged: “Let’s go ahead.
“But there is a reason we can do it.
“It’s because of this that a large section of the British public has come forward to be vaccinated and especially stimulated.”
“We did about 32.5 million encore jobs, maybe more.
“It allows us to celebrate the New Year with vigilance. “
Asked how England survived the same post-Christmas Covid repression that affected Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, the Prime Minister thanked Jab for his incredible deployment.
But he stressed that by 2022, guns need more hits to “really get this job done.”
He warned that up to 90% of those in the intensive care unit affected by covid are needle-free or without a booster.
Echoing the Prime Minister’s call for the Health Secretary to take up arms, he announced on Monday that no legally applicable lockdown measures would be implemented until January 1st.
But Sajid Javed stressed that the British should be ‘vigilant’, take lateral flow and celebrate outside or in a well-ventilated room – urging everyone to get vaccinated if a peak hospitalization can be avoided.
Local government locksmiths and others have claimed that government lockdowns will not make a comeback – but a decision on national restrictions may be just a few days away.
