The central government is planning to send students of class 8 to 12 first to their schools as they can follow the social distancing rules on their own.
Government’s plans on reopening after the covid-19 pandemic will lie on the shoulders of senior school students with all the social distancing.
The HRD ministry is in talks with the NCERT(national council of educational research and training) on formulating the set of guidelines.
It’s very likely to reopen the schools in the green and orange zone by July while only 30% of students will be allowed at a time in schools.
Ministry officials, the IE said students in the age group of 6 to 10 years, Studying in classes 1 to 5 are unlikely to go back to school for the next three months.
The opening of schools for senior students, however, will be in a staggered manner.
All students in all senior classes will not be called together. They will arrive in batches over a few days so that the school administration has time to brief them on new seating arrangement and new rules.
All students will wear a mask in the class.
