Consent letter from parents will be mandatory for students who want to join physical classes
Amid the decreasing number of COVID-19 cases, Madhya Pradesh government has given its nod to reopen schools for Classes I to V from September 20, but with only 50% attendance.
The decision was taken in a meeting chaired by the state’s chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The schools have been asked to follow the COVID-19 protocols while conducting physical classes. A consent letter will be mandatory from parents for students to join physical classes. Schools have been asked to continue online classes as well.
Students from Classes VI to XII are already attending physical classes at 50% capacity.
The hostels and boarding schools for Classes VIII, X and XII will also be reopened with 100% capacity while Class XI will be reopened with 50% capacity, said Inder Singh Parmar, the state’s school education minister.
All the school staff members have been asked to take their COVID-19 vaccinations as well.
The minister said, “The decision was taken after a review of the situation of Covid-19 cases. For the past one and a half months, the positive cases have been reduced to 0.1 %.”
