UP govt decides to reopen schools for class 9 to 12

Classes from 9th to 12th standards will soon resume all across Uttar Pradesh, as the state government has decided to reopen schools and colleges.

According to the notice issued by the government, the schools will be run between 10 am and 3 pm. The decision applies to all educational boards.

With several COVID-19 safety guidelines, the UP government allowed schools and colleges for reopening on December 7, 2020.

The students and staff were instructed strictly to follow COVID-19 prevention measures like social distancing, thermal checks at every entry point of the institutions, wearing masks, and others to join their duties at schools and colleges in the state.

On Friday, while hearing a PIL, a bench of high court instructed the state government to ensure that all COVID-19 safety are strictly being followed by students and staff at the schools and colleges in the state.
