Haryana Mulling To Reopen Schools For Classes 6 To 9 Students
Haryana School Opening: The students of Classes 6 to 9 will be allowed to visit their schools with permission of their parents and they can consult teachers to clear their doubts.
The Haryana Government is contemplating reopening schools for Class 6 to Class 9 to enable the students to take guidance from the teachers, in line with the Centre's decision allowing graded resumption of schools from October 15. If everything goes as per plans, the students of these classes can consult their teachers from October 15 onwards, Education Minister Kanwar Pal said here on Wednesday.
The students will be allowed to visit their schools with permission of their parents and they can consult teachers to clear their doubts. "We are contemplating opening the schools for the students of Classes 6 to 9 to enable them to take guidance from teachers. Final decision will be taken in coming days," Mr Pal told reporters here.
The decision of the Haryana Government to reopen schools in the state comes after the Ministry of Home Affairs, in an order released on September 30, has allowed the states to decide on the dates to reopen educational institutions to continue classes.
After remaining shut for the past six months due to the COVID-19 outbreak, schools in Haryana had last month partially reopened to enable students studying in Classes 9 to 12 to visit their institutions outside COVID-19 containment zones only. Schools were asked by authorities to follow all Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) issued by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare recently.
