New Delhi. Schools of classes 6 to 12 have been opened in Delhi today i.e. from December 18. During this, a student of Sarvodaya Bal Vidyalaya located in Sadiq Nagar, Delhi said that all the children were not able to attend the online class, there was a problem of network. It feels great to be coming to school. Whereas children in primary schools will be called from December 27. The decision of this has been taken in the meeting of Air Quality Commission and Experts on Friday. At the same time, according to the System of Air Quality and Weather Forecasting and Research (SAFAR), the air quality index in Delhi on Saturday is 319, which is in the very poor category.
The Air Quality Management Commission (CAQM) on Friday allowed authorities in Delhi-NCR to open schools for students of class 6 and above and start classes in colleges and other educational institutions with immediate effect. With this, the pollution control body of the Center said that classes can be started directly from December 27 for students up to class V. The commission said it had received a large number of memorandums regarding opening of schools and educational institutions. In such a situation, following the directions of the Supreme Court, the Commission has considered the requests received from various organizations regarding the relaxation of restrictions.
Let us tell you that there was a demand from the Education Department of Delhi Government that school-colleges, coaching centers should be opened immediately for the students of classes from 8th to big. At the same time, it was proposed to open schools from primary to fifth grade from December 20. But now the Air Quality Management Commission has given permission to open schools in Delhi in a phased manner.
Kovid guidelines will have to be taken care of
At the same time, keeping in mind the danger of Omicron, Kovid guidelines will have to be strictly followed in Delhi schools. Students will have to wear face masks at all times. Apart from taking care of social distancing, gathering is prohibited in the playground. At the same time, vaccination of school staff is mandatory and there is a rule to start classes only after sanitization of the entire campus.
Kejriwal had said this thing earlier
However, on the matter of opening the school a few days ago, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal had said that the decision on reopening the schools will be taken after the school’s winter vacation is over. With this, the Chief Minister said that we will talk to the Air Quality Commission. Now winter vacation is also coming, I think some decision will be taken only after that.
