After the Centre allowed states to open schools from September 21, Haryana was one of them who allowed it. The schools are opened in many parts of the country for class 9 to 12. The schools are closed across the country from mid-March due to the Corona epidemic.
The schools were opened with Standard Operations Procedures (SOPs) issued by the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
Haryana Education Programme Officer Parmod Kumar took the social media to share the SOPs for the opening of schools in the state. The state govt started “Chalo Chale Phir Se School” to bring back students.

From last six months online teaching is being imparted by schools due to the COVID crisis.
Though the overall number of students who turned up in schools these days is less but the govt is expecting more to follow.
While students in Haryana said they were happy to be back in school, even if regular classes had not resumed yet, there were some parents who were apprehensive as coronavirus cases had surged in the state and elsewhere.
Meanwhile, teachers were instructed not to share books, dusters, chalks with either students or other teachers. The state govt schools had installed foot pedals to control water taps. Santizers are installed for students.
Only one student at a time was allowed to go to the toilet, which was regularly cleaned. It has also been made mandatory for teachers to download the Aarogya Setu app on their mobile phones.
