Students studying in classes 9 to 12 in Haryana can volunteer to go to school for help in academics. The Directorate of School Education has mentioned the guidelines given by the central government to district education officers. According to the guidelines, students of classes 9 to 12 can go to their schools on a voluntary basis to consult their teachers.
Due to the pandemic, schools will follow Standard Operating Procedures when they reopen on 21 September to allow students to consult teachers.
Schools will remain closed for other students and online classes will continue even if students are going to school to consult teachers or practice in the laboratories.
Teachers must download the Aarogya Setu app on their mobile phones and take a COVID-19 test before schools reopen partially on 21 September. Students will also need to obtain written consent from their parents before they go to school.
Up to 50 percent of staff will be allowed in the school at all times.
Once in school, they will have to go through thermal scanning before entering the premises. In addition, they will have to wear masks, sanitize their hands, and observe social distancing norms when seated.
Educational institutions in India have remained closed since mid-March to contain the outbreak of COVID-19.
