The government of Punjab has decided to reopen the schools for students in primary classes from January 27 across the state. The schools for these students will be reopening after 10 months of closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation.

A minister in Punjab confirmed the news of the reopening of schools for primary classes on Wednesday. The state government had already reopened the schools for classes 5 to 12 earlier this month with several precautionary measures.

“Following persistent demand of parents, the state government has decided to reopen all schools for primary classes from January 27,” Education minister Vijay Inder Singla said in a statement, as per PTI reports.

The schools in Punjab had been shut down, along with all the other educational institutes in the country, due to the rapid spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in the country. State governments are finally taking the decision to reopen the schools after the pandemic is comparatively under control.

The education minister of Punjab further said that as per the decision, students of classes 3 and 4 will be allowed to attend the school from January 27. From February 1, classes 1 and 2 will be restarted at all schools.

The timings for the offline classes for these students will remain the same i.e. 10 am to 3 pm. The state government has also announced that all the students attending classes will have to submit a consent form signed by their parents.

Education Minister Singla directed officials and school management to ensure proper cleaning of premises and follow the Covid-19 safety norms to ensure that the students and teachers in the school premises are not at any risk of infection.
