Even as the state government has given its go ahead for reopening of schools with 100 per cent capacity, Jagran Josh reported that there is still confusion among students and parents regarding how the schools will implement the order. While the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) in order to follow COVID-19 precautions will remain the same, the schools will have to tweak the schedules and time slots to ensure staggered class timings and avoid crowding. Local media reports say that attendance might not be made mandatory as there are many students who have not been vaccinated.
