On Monday, after almost a month, the schools affiliated to the UP Board returned to the glory. Schools were closed since the end of December amid fears of a third wave of Corona. But schools were opened for students of classes 9 to 12 from Monday, effectively reducing the rate of infection. All schools including Government Inter College, GGIC Civil Lines opened. However, on the first day the attendance of the students remained low.
In most schools, thermal scanning of students was done as per the guidelines of the government and admission was given after sanitization. All the students entered the school only by wearing masks. Schools affiliated to Vidya Bharati, Rani Revati Devi Saraswati Vidya Niketan Inter College, Rajapur and Jwala Devi Saraswati Vidya Mandir Inter College Civil Lines and Rasulabad have started pre-board examinations for the children of class 10th and 12th.
Banke Bihari Pandey, Principal of Rani Revati Devi, said that on the first day itself, a record 509 out of 522 children from class 9 to 12 were present. More than 70 percent students were present in Jwala Devi Civil Lines.
