Schools reopen after 700 days in Jamshedpur

Jamshedpur, March 7: After a gap of more than 700 days, government schools reopened in the district for classes I to VIII on Monday. The state has passed new guidelines and rules for the teachers to follow.

Only government schools are now open as private schools have end-semester exams being conducted for now.

Schools have opened from Monday for children of classes I to VIII in seven districts of Jharkhand including Deoghar, Ranchi, East Singhbhum, Chatra, Simdega, Seraikela-Kharsawan and Bokaro.

As per the new guidelines passed by the state government, the school administration has been instructed to make sure that Mid-Day meals continue for students that will join schools from Monday as per the routine without any hassle.

Students, teachers and other non-teaching staff have been asked to take all Covid-19 precautions and adhere to the guidelines issued by the government while attending school.

“I am happy that schools have reopened as students were getting badly affected. Some of the children studying in schools do not have laptops to carry out online studies. Our syllabus is lagging and we will work hard to cover it,” said a student.

Teachers too seemed happy to be able to take physical classes again. “It is good that we are getting an opportunity to teach students in physical classrooms. All these months we used to come to schools but did not have teaching work,” said a teacher.

Students have to bring consent letters from their guardians to be able to attend the classes, another teacher said. Attendance, however, remained thin as many parents were apprehensive of sending their wards to the educational institutions till they are inoculated.

“We will not send our children to schools till they are vaccinated for Covid-19. We cannot take risks despite the precautionary measures being taken by the state government,” a resident of Sonari said.

Students, teachers and other non-teaching staff have been asked to take all Covid-19 precautions and adhere to the guidelines issued by the government while attending school.

Schools that provide pick and drop services to students have been asked to ensure that the service providers always have their masks on. A minimum distance of 1 to 2 feet should be there between the students and they have been told not to talk to each other during the drive.

Morning assembly sessions and games periods have been removed from the schedule to avoid the spread of the infection. To prevent a large gathering of students, their lunchtime has also been changed to scattered timings.

Authorities of the educational institutions will keep a tab on students to check whether they have any Covid symptoms and medical examinations of pupils will be conducted in government schools on a random basis. The students will be allowed to enter the school campus wearing masks.
