As per the order, the decision to close down all government and private schools for Classes-VI to VIII was in view of the second wave of COVID-19 pandemic and to avoid any kind of unwanted consequences likely to occur in the near future more particularly the students.

The recently reopened schools for classes-VI to VIII will remain closed with immediate effect and until further order in public interest, it stated. However, the order added, the physical classes for class-IX and XII will continue by strictly observing the approved SOP and guidelines framed by the state government.
The classes for students of Class-V and below will be through online mode and notified earlier, the order reiterated.
