The partial reopening of school in Delhi, Attendance likely to be small

NEW DELHI: Few schools are set to resume classes X and XII from Monday, as most schools are yet to receive permission from the parents. For the ones that are opening, students have been split into small groups of students for them to use the lab. Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) allowed schools to re-open for students of classes X and XII for practicals, projects, admission or counselling-related work from August 9. The directorate of education (DoE) had specified that the children can come to school after receiving consent from the parents.

Ashok Pandey, director of Ahlcon School, said, “For now we have received some consent letters from the parents and children will start coming to the school from Monday. We have divided the students into small groups and the schedule has been divided to use each of the labs.” The Indian School, however, is only calling Class XII students for now. “We will hopefully start by Tuesday as we are expecting to receive the consent by Monday,” said Tania Joshi, principal. Rooma Pathak, principal of MM Public School, Pitampura, said, “We have received consent from 80% of the parents of both the classes.”

Meanwhile, many institutions will reopen from August 21. Government Co-ed Sarvodaya Vidyalaya, Sector-8 Rohini, has decided to call students from August 21. “The children are already coming for counselling and admission-related work. But classes will begin later, once we collect the consent form,” said AK Jha, principal.

Manav Sthali School Rajendra Nagar has decided to re-open only after Raksha Bandhan due to very few parents giving consent. However, students have started attending classes at some government schools from last week itself. “Almost 45% of the students of class X and XII visited the school last week. We are hopeful that this week more students will start coming in,” said Sunil Kumar Joon, English teacher at Government Boys Senior Secondary School, Ghitorni.
