The pandemic has put education on hold. Many schools and colleges have been closed for almost a year now. In many places, schools and colleges are gradually being reopened, but only in phases.
In Manipur, schools had been reopened for classes 9 to 12 earlier this year to help the students preparing for their upcoming board exams. As the second phase of reopening schools, schools in Manipur will be reopened for students of classes 6-8 from March 8. The government approved this decision on March 4. The officials giving the statement also mentioned that schools can come up with their system of evaluation for students of Class 6 to 9 in the annual examination for promotion to the next higher class.
However, the schools being reopened will have to follow all Covid-related precautions. The usage of masks and social distancing will also have to be compulsorily followed in these schools to ensure maximum safety.
