The Uttarakhand state government has decided to reopen the schools in the state for students of classes 10 and 12 from November 1, amid the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. The decision of the state government has left parents anxious and worried.

The school management and the state government have stated that they are prepared to reopen the schools with strict safety protocols and social distancing norms in place. However, they have also stated that they will not be accountable if any students are infected.

"While we will make sure that the SOPs are followed, I must say that the schools should not be held responsible if a student catches the virus," Chairman Doon International School D S Mann told PTI.

The schools in Uttarakhand will be reopening on November 1, more than seven months after they were shut down due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. After the guidelines regarding the reopening of educational institutes have been, the state government has decided to reopen the schools.

Parents in Uttarakhand are worried about the reopening of schools in the state as they do not want to expose their wards to the risk of catching the infection but are left with no choice as the option of studying online will no longer be available for the children of the two classes.

“Children have spent half of the session attending online classes. There is no harm in letting them continue their studies in this manner for the rest of the session," said Asha Rawat, a resident of Nehru Colony, told PTI. She further said that it is better that her daughter studies at home.

"The health of our children is paramount. Why should we take the risk of sending our children to school when neither the state government nor the school authorities are ready to take the responsibility for their safety," another parent in the Dalanwala area told PTI.

Many parents also said that the children should only be called to the school for practical classes, and regular classes should only be resumed after a vaccine for the Covid-19 virus has been made available and every child is vaccinated.
