Puducherry schools will reopen on Monday after a long break of over nine months due to Covid-19 pandemic. The Directorate of School Education has released a statement of reopening schools, including privately managed institutions on Monday.
Puducherry schools to reopen: Guidelines released
Puducherry and Karaikal regions will begin classes with half a day session from 10 am to 1 pm.
Classes for standard 1 to 12 would be held from tomorrow with strict adherence to safety norms.
Official sources said that full-day working of schools would be restored on January 18. Schools remained closed since March last year in view of lockdown triggered by unabated incidence of coronavirus. Schools, however, held classes to clear doubts and to provide clarification for students of grade 10, 11 and 12, who would take up board exams in March or April this year.
Schools conducted classes online for others. Managements of schools sanitised premises ahead of reopening of institutions.
