Will consider reopening schools for classes 1 to 4: Maha govt

Mumbai, Jan 26 (PTI) The Maharashtra government will
consider reopening schools for students of classes 1 to 4 if
schools can smoothly run classes 5 to 8 that are set to
restart from January 27, state School Education Minister
Varsha Gaikwad said on Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters in Parbhani city, about 515 kms
away from Mumbai, the minister said RT-PCR tests of most of
the teachers were conducted ahead of reopening of schools for
classes 5 to 8.

“Schools have been sanitised (for reopening). We have
appealed to parents to send their wards to schools wearing
masks. Once we succeed in it (smoothly running the classes
from tomorrow), we will consider restarting classes up to 4th
standard,” the minister said.

After the state government gave its nod, schools for
classes 9 to 12 reopened for students from November 23, 2020,
nearly nine months after they had to shut due to COVID-19
lockdown, with strict implementation of pandemic protocols.

“Some 22 lakh students have started attending these
classes (for 9 to 12) in 22,204 schools in the state. Now we
are reopening schools for students of classes 5 to 8 from
tomorrow (January 27), where 78.47 lakh students are
enrolled,” said an official from the state education
department.

The classes will primarily focus on subjects like
science, mathematics and English language, which means
students will have to carry less books, he said.

The education department has asked parents to give a
bottle of drinking water to their wards who will start
attending schools. PTI ND
