    Social distancing is the only way, students will not wear masks regularly and it is not confertable also.

    Neither government nor the school administration is ready to take responsibility for our children during offline classes. This is the reason they ask for parents letter. How can parents monitor their children in school. Dont expect children to follow covid protocol when schools themselves don't follow the protocol. They only want fees. They are also forcing children to take offline classes and dumping all students in one class. So parents should Decide finally what is good for their children safety. Hasty decisions can prove costly.

    This was a decision that had to be taken. It's easy for us to tell children studying at home is better etc but after pandemic a 60% increase in eye problem in children alone has happened. Not only that when vaccation between adults is happening at such good pace (because of "bachali party") what is the problem? Tell me what is not open now. Cases are less than 800 in the state. In schools majority of the students are locals there's no inter state students in schools...
