There has been a decision by most of Lucknow schools of not re-opening the schools from September 21. Although, the decision was just purely based on voluntary basis so that teachers can properly guide students (when asked)
The centre may have directed about the partial opening of schools from 9 to 12, but the schools are in no mood to follow it.
They say that any queries can be properly asked and addressed right through online classes, thus giving the least possibility of any heads up towards the decision of centre.
Prominent schools of Lucknow will continue to be in a closure mood while carrying with the proper online classes at the same time.
The decision from schools is primarily based on the concerns arising out of Covid 19 where safety of students is of prime importance.
Principals of several schools are certainly averse to the idea of opening partial schools as they say that online classes are going on effectively where students are addressing their problems in a full-fledged manner
So, based on several aspects of what Principals of different colleges feel, it is appropriate to say that that they are very much concerned about the rising Covid 19 cases even more. Well, currently, they know that it is not feasible, but if it eases, then they may decide on the next course of action. Like, if the situation starts getting normal, then they will see, whether it is feasible to open the educational institutions after Diwali or not.
Obviously, responsible figures can’t undermine the relevance and importance of this exact scenario where they have termed the current situation to be “extra ordinary”
Yes, when the situation is so unfavorable, then obviously they have to take due measures and proper guidelines to work their way and they can’t take chances any more. So, the schools will remain closed for now.
That’s the final thing coming out from the prestigious position holders in the educational sector who certainly don’t want to take any chance
Not every school is against the idea of opening partial schools
Schools in the form of Christ Church College, Loreto Convent and St. Joseph’s group of institutions have shown their willingness to open their different braches ranging in different parts of the city
While Loreto Principal has said that for students who are now going to appear for crucial papers in 10 and 12 can come to schools in case of doubts. But, while doing so, a written permission from parents is required to keep the school in a safe mode.
Students seem to be looking forward
Urvashi Sahni who is CEO of Study Hall shares how upbeat students actually are when they have got the news of schools re-opening partially.
Even parents know that it is partially and certainly voluntary so they have nothing to worry in that front.
Few things coming out from schools are:-
- Schools will be taking written permission from parents of students who are coming to schools
- There will be adequate social distancing mechanism to be adopted
- Students to be called for a fixed time period only to help them get adequate remedial measures for the queries
- Safety of students is to be ensured and they will be sitting at proper distances
Are parents ready to send their kids to school? Let’s find out
Few parents don’t want to sent, even if it is opened
Let’s not forget, that educational institutions in the whole country is closed since late March as the sudden and untimely news of corona virus has broken down.
This has given rise to the new yet obvious mechanism of online classes and is currently set to be in effect for the time to come too.
