Sandeepa Sood, principal, Saffron Public School, Phagwara, has already prepared a blueprint for reopening the school. He has already started going to the school and has been planning to recommence classes once the school starts.

Schoolteachers have been making notes, creating videos and providing these to students. They have also been referring several online sites so that the students get to learn from various sources. The principal has been making sure that she interacts with parents on a regular basis.

I have decided to split the sections and will allocate tables to the students. They would have to sit accordingly and we will strictly follow physical distancing in our classes. We will sanitise classrooms and every student will be asked to sit on the particular desk and every class, be it recreational class, yoga class or teaching lessons, the student will attend everything sitting on that one desk

Online classes are being held according to the timetable. Besides, the psychometric test is held for students who will opt for various streams in the next session.

A counsellor is also touch with the students of the school through the Internet.

The principal agreed that the traditional classroom teaching could not be replaced by online teaching and students miss that. Despite it, she has been trying her best to provide equal level of education to students.

“We don't know how long the pandemic is going to stay with us. For me, the safety of the students is foremost important. I have decided to split the sections and will allocate tables to the students. They would have to sit accordingly and we will strictly follow physical distancing in our classes,” she said.

“We will sanitise classrooms and every student will be asked to sit on the particular desk and every class, be it recreational class, yoga class or teaching lessons, the student will attend everything sitting on that one desk,” the principal added.

She said the idea is that no student should touch each other and such steps would be taken as precautionary measures.

“Buses will also be sanitized and if parents want to drop their wards, they can," she said. "To ensure that the students don't suffer from any anxiety or depression and to boost their immune system, yoga classes will be made regular and compulsory in the school,” the principal said.
