Schools in Punjab, Manipur, and Thane rural area, Maharashtra, will open their doors for students for the first time tomorrow, January 27, after months, since the COVID-induced lockdown. While Punjab had reopened schools for students of Classes 5 to 12 earlier this month, Manipur is reopening schools for only Classes 9 to 12.

Many states including Delhi, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Karnataka, Bihar, Odisha, Assam, Jharkhand, Mizoram, and Kerala have already reopened their schools, especially to help students who will appear in board exams in the upcoming months.

COVID-19 related rules, health and safety guidelines will be strictly followed in Maharashtra, Punjab, and Manipur schools when they reopen from tomorrow.

Maharashtra School Reopening

Maharashtra had said that its schools in rural areas in Thane will reopen from January 27. As per the official release, district Guardian Minister Eknath Shinde issued directions to reopen schools of all mediums, including ashram schools, which have remained shut for the last 10 months due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Maharashtra had reopened schools from classes 5 to 8 last week in the rest of the regions.
