Tamil Nadu schools reopen for classes 10 and 12

January 20, 2021

Tamil Nadu schools have reopened on Tuesday, January 19, 2021, after they were closed for 10 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The schools reopened in a phased manner following the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) issued by the government.

Earlier, CM Edappadi Palaniswami stated that each classroom would have a maximum 25 students only to maintain social distancing norms. The students will be provided with Zinc and Vitamin tablets by the health department to boost their immunity.

The decision to reopen schools was taken by the government after holding a consultation with parents and teachers – about 95 percent  parents said they want schools to reopen.

In a circular issued by the School Education Department, officials have been asked to monitor the conduct of health camps in schools as well as regular check-ups. Sanitisers are to be provided in each classroom. Health inspectors, non-medical supervisors are deployed in each block to ensure the safety of the wards and the staff.

The schools have been told to keep the local medical staff in PHCs and government hospitals to stay alert to attend to the school children/staff requiring medical help. All the schools including Corporation, Municipalities, Town Panchayats have been asked to ensure the cleaning of schools before reopening and disinfection activities daily. The noon meal scheme will commence in schools as usual following the SOPs.
