Deccan Express | As the Covid-19 cases in many parts of the state have now started to subside, the state government is planning to conduct offline classes. In the first phase, the government has planned to reopen the schools from areas where the Covid-19 cases are negligible.

Maharashtra Government has issued a notification about it recently.

According to notification, the schools in Covid-19 free areas especially rural areas can resume offline teaching. In the first phase, it will be implemented for students from 8th – 12th students.

The notification says that the decision to reopen schools or to conduct offline classes should be taken after discussion with parents.

Also, the students should be called to schools by adhering to the guidelines laid down considering the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to norms, only one student should be on each bench. Also, there should be six feet distance between the two benches. Maximum 15-20 students should be there in a classroom. Wearing a mask should be compulsory. Students should be asked to wash their hands at regular intervals. If any student has Covid-19 symptoms then he should be sent home and the students should be asked to undergo a Corona test.

Guidelines to reopen schools

  • Schools should make arrangements to wash hands
  • The school should be equipped with Infrared Thermometer, sanitizer, oximeter, etc.
  • Local civic bodies should shift the quarantine centers in schools to other places and hand over the school to the concerned authorities. If the school was used as a quarantine center then before handing it over to the school authorities, the local civic body should sanitize it.
  • If it is not possible to shift the quarantine center set up in school then the alternate arrangement should be made for the students.
  • All teaching and non-teaching staff must conduct RTPCR or RAPID ANTIGEN tests before resuming school
  • Social / physical distancing rule must be implemented in the staff room.
