Delhi government has allowed all schools in the national capital to reopen for Class 10 and 12 from January 18. The schools have been allowed to reopen in order to conduct activities pertaining to pre-board preparation and practical exams. However, the consent of parents will be mandatory for calling children to schools.

According to officials of the Directorate of Education (DoE), physical attendance in schools is not compulsory and schools will have to follow all COVID-19 guidelines.

“All government aided and unaided schools in the national capital may call students of class 10 and class 12 to conduct activities related to pre-board preparations and practical exams. Schools can reopen from January 18, 2021,” a senior official of the department said.

However, consent of parents is mandatory for calling students to schools and all standard operating procedures must be followed. Schools will have to maintain records of all children coming to school.

Schools in Delhi have been shut since March 2020 to prevent the outbreak of coronavirus. Several states allowed the partial reopening of schools after October, but this is the first time when the government has allowed students of Delhi to return to their campuses. These students have been attending online classes so far.
