ABSTRACT
Covid-19 is an acute respiratory disease caused by Coronavirus Sars-Cov-2. Declared recently as pandemic disease, Covid-19 has affected educational systems worldwide. Many countries around the world have closed educational institutions to reduce the spread of this pandemic. Hence, Education in high schools is facing unprecedented challenges.
