Schools in Delhi will be closed until September 30th. Older students can visit institutes from September 21st for advice
NEW DELHI: All schools in Delhi will remain closed until September 30th in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, but higher grades students will be allowed to visit their facilities from September 21st for advice from teachers, the Directorate of Education ( DoE) said on Friday.

The management has stated that up to 50 percent of the teaching and non-teaching staff can be called for online lessons, teleconsultation and related work in schools outside the COVID-19 security zones.

“All schools will remain closed to students until September 30 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, students in grades 9 through 12 are only allowed to attend their schools on a voluntary basis in areas outside the security zones and seek advice from their teachers,” said the DoE in an official order.

“This requires the written consent of their parents and legal guardians and is permitted from September 21st. SOPs are issued by the Ministry of Health,” it says.

The DoE has ordered that online courses and learning activities for students continue as usual.

Universities and schools across the country have been closed since March 16, when the center announced a nationwide classroom closure as part of measures to contain the spread of the novel coronavirus.

A nationwide lockdown was imposed on March 25.
