Sikkim's Education Department said on Monday that educational classes will resume on March 1 with full attendance and on a full-time basis. On February 1, all government-aided and private educational institutions, universities, colleges, tutorials, coaching institutes, and dormitories in Sikkim reopened, although with just half of their total capacity. In a statement, the government declared that colleges of higher learning must adhere to the schedules already issued by their respective universities.
From March 1, 2022, courses will resume on a full-time basis with full attendance of staff and students, according to the department's notification. It also said that schools may operate from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. While central government institutions have been instructed to implement the Centre's directives.
This circular will apply to institutions that do not have any explicit rules or directions. The order also directed heads of institutions to "scrupulously" follow all COVID-19 procedures as well as the Ministry of Education, Department of Education, and Department of Health and Family Welfare's Standard Operating Procedure (SOP).
