Principals wrote that restarting those classes would put students’ safety at risk
The principal of schools affiliated with the Uttar Pradesh Board wrote a letter to the District Inspector of Schools (DIS) opposing the reopening of schools between standards 6 and 8 on December 15.
Classes 9 to 12 reopened earlier this month but schools have reported reasonably low attendance. In the letter, principals stated that reopening middle school classes would put the students’ safety at risk, due to the rising numbers in COVID-19 cases.
UP Board Secretary Divyakant Shukla had issued a letter to the DIS on November 24 asking district-level officials to seek feedback regarding the reopening of the schools from principals of educational institutions.
Considering the present situation, most principals have advised against the reopening of schools for standards 6 to 8 on December 15.
“Principals of schools were contacted to get feedback on the reopening of school for students from class 6 to 8. Around 70% of the principals are of the opinion that schools should not be opened from December 15 for these students,” said DIS, Prayagraj, RN Vishwakarma.
