Standard Operating Procedures on reopening of Uttarakhand schools released

DEHRADUN: Following its decision to allow schools to reopen for classes X and XII from November 2, the Uttarakhand government on Saturday issued the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for reopening of boarding and non-boarding schools in the state in the wake of Covid-19 threat.
The order directs school managements to conduct sanitisation of their campuses every day and after every shift. It also asks the schools to ensure the availability of hand sanitisers and thermal scanners while adding that no student shall be allowed inside a classroom without thermal scanning. The schools have also been asked to provide first-aid to anyone showing Covid-19-like symptoms and then immediately sending the individual to home/hospital.
The schools have also been asked to ensure that distancing norms are followed by students. The use of multiple entry/exit points has been encouraged. The order goes on to say that if required, schools can operate with only 50% of their strength on a day. All kinds of events and sports activities which invite a student gathering have been prohibited.

The SOPs for boarding schools state that the Covid-19 negative report of the staff and students of private boarding schools will have to be submitted to the chief education Officer (CEO) of the respective district, 72 hours prior to the reopening of the school. The SOPs add that there is no compulsion for the boarding school students to come to their schools if they are staying back at their homes. In such cases, they shall be provided with the facility of online classes by their respective boarding schools.
