After being shut for 10 months since March 19, government, government-aided/unaided schools in Delhi will reopen from tomorrow only for the students of Class 10 and 12. The decision to reopen school was taken early this month, after months of putting it off while the government consulted with guardians, school authorities etc.

The Centre had allowed the reopening of schools from September 21, 2020, for the first time after lockdown. States decided whether to reopen schools or not according to their Covid-19 situation.

1. Only students of class 10 and 12 are allowed to visit schools with parental consent.

2. A record of the students coming to school will be maintained, but that will not be for attendance purpose as coming to school is voluntary.

3. Schools inside containment zones will not be allowed to reopen and students, teachers from such areas won't be allowed to come to schools.

4. There will be no assembly or physical outdoor activities.

7. Online classes will continue for those who are staying at home.

8. There will be two shifts if required depending on the number of students attending classes.

States which have reopened physical classes have reported some infections among teachers.
