Normal classes for Class-IX and above resume as schools, colleges reopened in Manipur

Most of the schools in Imphal area conducted the normal classes with full teacher attendance. However, students’ attendance was low. Social distancing was maintained by the students inside the class rooms.

After almost 11 months and amid the Covid-19 pandemic, schools and colleges in Manipur reopened on Wednesday for Classes 9 and above standards. All educational institutions across the state remained closed since the second week of March, 2020 to contain the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in the state.

It can be mentioned here that a cabinet meeting chaired by chief minister N Biren Singh a few days ago had taken the decision to re-open schools from classes 9 and above from  January 27. The decision to reopen schools and colleges was taken with a view to supplement the deficit classes due to the Covid-19 pandemic with strict COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). Following that decision, almost all schools and colleges were opened on the first day on Wednesday and resumed classes while strictly following the SOPs issued by the state Education department.
