Tamil Nadu Schools recently reported some new COVID-19 cases. With the government being able to control the situation, it has now come to light that offline lectures might resume for students. As per a report in NDVT, TN schools are likely to reopen for classes 6 to 12 from January 3, 2022.
Tamil Nadu School students must note that a copy of the official order on schools reopening is yet to be received. However, as per media reports, students will be able to go back to their schools and learn in brick-and-mortar environment soon.
Some reports even suggest that the decision has been taken after a COVID-19 review meeting was held under Chief Minister M.K. Stalin. In the meeting, the decision was taken to reopen schools after assessing the learning loss that many students had been facing.
As mentioned before, even though official guidelines on TN Schools reopening are awaited, it is likely that attendance will not be made compulsory. A major reason for this is that many students in this age group are not yet eligible for vaccination.
Tamil Nadu Schools would still follow COVID-19 safety protocols, even if some students of classes 6 to 12 opt for hybrid mode. Once an official confirmation is received, it is likely that the government would issue new guidelines and SOPs on reopening as well.
