Karnataka: Students of classes 9 and 11 to join seniors on campus from today | Bengaluru News – Times of India

BENGALURU: Students of grades 9 and 11 will join those of grades 10 and 12 on campuses for full-day classes from Monday. School managements expect all class 9 students, who attended Vidyagama lessons on campus, to turn up for regular classes as well.
“Students who attended Vidyagama will probably continue [to come to school],” said D Shashi Kumar, secretary, Association of Managements of Primary and Secondary Schools in Karnataka. “The only difference is that the number of students will increase on campus and special attention must be paid to ensuring social distancing during lunch hours.”
Monday will be the first time I PU students will be back on campus after their class 10 board exams in June last year. “We expect at least 50% attendance on Monday,” said AH Ningegowda, president, PU college lecturers association. “The numbers will slowly increase and stabilise. That was the pattern for II PU classes. Attendance in II PU is now 75%.”
In a circular, the department urged colleges to take extra Covid-19 safety measures since the number of students on campus will increase. Each college has been asked to appoint a lecturer as a nodal officer. The officer must monitor safety measures on campus and send a full-day report on Covid-19 cases to the concerned district deputy director every day. If there are no cases, these officers have been asked to specify ‘nil’ in their reports.
The education department allowed schools to conduct full-time classes for grades 9 to 12 from the first week of February. Until now, classes were being held in batches. Following the decision, the department directed schools and colleges to follow safety measures like social distancing norms, use of masks and hand sanitisers etc.
