Schools in  Delhi to  welcome students in junior classes from Monday

Schools in Delhi are preparing to welcome junior class students on Monday, despite some parents' reservations about bringing their children to school. Schools returned for classes 9 to 12 on Monday (February 7) after a lengthy closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, while classes nursery to 8 will reopen on February 14.

While the Centre has opted to leave the requirement of parental agreement for pupils to physically attend schools to the states, the Delhi government has decided to stick with it. There is no 50 percent student limit, and schools are free to determine the number of students depending on their infrastructure while still adhering to the Covid regulations.

The Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) has laid out some criteria for reopening schools, including using all access and exit gates, staggered lunch periods, adequate thermal scanners, and sanitization of the premises.

Lunch breaks should be staggered to reduce crowding and held in an open location, according to standard operating protocols, and students should be given school counselling and advice to help them acclimate to the new normal.
