Hyderabad | 1st September 2021
All schools of the state, private and government, reopened today after a gap of pretty much 17 months (though they were once briefly opened in February for a few weeks).
Several parents were seen dropping their kids, all wearing face masks, at schools on the first day of the reopening today.
At several government schools, midday meals were also served to the students.
However, most schools had a very low attendance percentage, hovering in the twenties. The vast majority of parents have decided to see how things unfold with the physical classes for a few days before sending their wards to school.
The school managements are reportedly following all the Covid-19 protocols to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus in the schools.
Meanwhile, the state government has issued fresh guidelines to all the schools barring residential schools for holding physical classes. It has left the decision of sending their children to schools to the parents, and has said that teaching would be imparted in both online and offline modes.
The Board of Intermediate Education has however announced that junior colleged may impart teaching only in the physical mode.
Meanwhile, officials of the RTA cracked the whip on unauthorised school buses, and seized 12 buses which violated norms.
