Schools for students from nursery to Class 8 in Delhi reopened on Monday in view of the declining Covid -19 cases in the national capital.
The decision to resume the offline mode of learning was taken by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA) in January following a Covid-19 review meeting.
However, schools are strictly following the Covid-19 protocols of maintaining social distancing and wearing face masks..
But on Monday morning, children from nursery to class 4 were not seen coming to school as parents are still apprehensive about sending their wards for physical classes.
On February 7, physical classes resumed for students of Classes 9-12. The Delhi government has, however, said that the hybrid model of education for all classes will continue.
DDMA official guidelines
According to guidelines issued by the DDMA, schools have been asked to ensure regular sanitisation of the premises, thermal scanning, wearing of masks, adequate availability of soaps and hand sanitisers and staggered lunch breaks, among others.
