With Covid cases declining, the Haryana government has given a go-ahead to resume offline classes in both government and private schools in the state.

According to an order issued by the Directorate School Education, offline classes will resume for students of Classes IX-XII from July 16. For Classes VI-VIII, the offline classes will resume from July 23.

The order says that a decision on resuming offline classes for students of Classes I-V will be taken later.

According to the order, online classes will continue and students who want to continue taking them will be allowed to do so. It adds that students will be allowed to attend school only on receiving written permission from their parents.

The order also says that no student will be pressured to attend offline classes at school.

The Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) issued last year regarding physical distancing and other protocols will remain in force as the schools reopen, the order states. It adds that a video has been made available to students, parents and teachers on how the offline classes would be conducted.

Schools in Haryana had opened after the first wave of the Covid pandemic but had to be shut again earlier this year when the second wave pushed up daily case counts and deaths.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar yesterday said that the Covid curve has flattened for now. “Therefore, while ensuring strict adherence of COVID-19, the educational institutions should be reopened at the earliest,” he said in a release.

As per the Union Health Ministry data, Haryana today reported 55 new Covid cases and 10 deaths. The number of active cases in the state stands at 1,034.
