It's the first of September which means it's the first day of school for many students across the country after a long COVID-19-induced hiatus.
Schools have reopened for classes 9 to 12 in Delhi, Tamil Nadu, and Rajasthan and for classes 6 to 12 in Madhya Pradesh and Tripura. Schools in Assam, Telangana, and Puducherry have also been reopened.
All states have strict guidelines in place for the reopening of educational institutes. For instance, in Rajasthan, it is mandatory for the teaching and non-teaching staff to have taken at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine 14 days prior to school reopening.
Meanwhile, in Tamil Nadu and Delhi, thermal screening is mandatory, lunch breaks will be staggered and classes will deploy only 50 percent seating arrangement with alternate seating.
Schools are also required to provide an isolation room in case a student feels unwell. Though schools have reopened, enthusiasm in the national capital was curtailed due to heavy rains and waterlogging in several areas. Therefore, most schools witnessed sparse attendance.
