He added that as the covid cases in the state are declining, the government has already reopened schools for students of classes 6 to 8 from September 6 and for classes 9 to 12 from August 23.

However, the Primary and Secondary Education Minister B C Nagesh said the classes for 1 to 5 will reopen on the recommendations of the state’s Technical Advisory Committee on Covid 19.

“If they say from October 21, we will start; if they say a week later, we will start a week later.” Noting that the government wants to start classes from one to five in one go, he said, “but our plan is to have half-a-day classes during the initial one week or so, and thereafter full day classes, once students get used to it,” he said.

The decision to reopen schools for LKG (Lower Kindergarten) and UKG (Upper Kindergarten) children is yet to be taken.
