LADAKH [Maha Media]: Schools in Ladakh reopened for Class 6 to Class 9 on Tuesday, after almost a year of remaining shut due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Ladakh Public School administration said that classes have resumed following all COVID-19 guidelines, Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and with only 50 per cent occupancy in each class.
A school staff of Ladakh Public School said, "I thank Union Territory administration and Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council for taking this decision of reopening classes from 6 to 9. Class 10 were already reopened."
"We are following the COVID-19 SOPs. Only one student will be sitting on one bench. We have also decided to conduct classes on alternate days for students, for instance, if a class has 30 students fifteen will be called to attend class one day and fifteen on the next day," he further said.
