"Though we tried our maximum to give the best coaching via online, It's always better to teach and study physically than online because of internet connectivity issues. Parents have been assured of strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols," a teacher from Millia Convent English school in Muzaffarpur told ANI.
"No two students are allowed to sit on one bench, only one student per bench and sanitisation is being done in classrooms at one-hour interval," she added.
Offline classes for students of Classes 9 to 12 had started on January 4 in Bihar.
All government and private schools in Bihar will resume physical teaching for Classes 1 to 5 after months, since they were shut in March last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
