After a hiatus of 11 months, the state had resumed physical classes for class 9 and above from February. Subsequently, the government had permitted students of class 6 and above to attend school for physical classes. Barely a month and half later, the schools were again getting back to online teaching as Covid-19 cases were on the rise, especially in several schools, colleges and hostels.
“We have about 8,000 students and we do not want to put their lives at risk. Beginning Monday, all students will attend online classes except class 10-12 students, who will complete their practical exams in batches from the campus,” Delhi Public School, Nacharam, principal Sunitha Rao said.
While most CBSE schools are contemplating to roll-back to online classes, the state board schools were still continuing with the hybrid model.
“Online classes are continuing parallelly. In most state board schools, attendance is still not 100%. Many students still continue to attend classes online,” Telangana Recognised School Managements Association general secretary Sadula Madhusudan said.
Some schools have recorded a few positive asymptomatic cases. While practical exams for class 10-12 will continue, physical classes for class 6-9 students will he held online.
