Chandigarh, July 19

After nearly five months, local government schools reopened with a thin attendance this morning. The UT Administration had announced to open schools for offline classes. Students were allowed to attend offline classes only after getting an approval letter from their parents. “Around 4,000 students, nearly 10 per cent of the total enrolled, of Class IX to XII attended school today,” said the DPI (Schools). The students attended the offline classes while following the Covid protocol.

Pvt schools stick to online mode

Private schools, meanwhile, continue to teach students online. The Independent Schools Association, Chandigarh, had decided that schools would reopen only if over 50 per cent of the parents were willing to send their wards for offline classes. Sources said not many parents were interested in this for fear of the pandemic.
