BHUBANESWAR: In the wake of spurt in Covid-19 cases in Odisha, many private school in the city have decided not to start offline classes for the new academic session. The state government had allowed offline classes for classes IX to XII.

However, state-run schools are continuing offline classes for class IX to XII students as the final examinations are yet to be completed and new academic session has not started. A plus two student of BJB higher secondary school has tested Covid-19 positive.

Chairman of Confederation of Odisha Private Schools B N Patnaik said, “All schools have decided to go for online classes this year too from Monday. Until all teachers and students are vaccinated we are not going to resume offline classes and safety of children is of paramount important to us.”

Several other private schools in the city are also in a dilemma over resuming offline or physical classes for class IX as in the last one week Covid-19 cases have been detected in several private schools in the city creating panic among parents.

“We have decided to start classes for the new batch of students of class IX and XII from April 15. We are keeping a close watch on the evolving Covid-19 situation in the state. We are following all safety protocols in school and at the same time continuing online classes too,” said Sujata, principal of DAV Public School, Pokhariput here.

She further said courses of class X and XII are almost over and also due to the fear of Covid-19 infection, attendance in physical classes has become thinner in the last few weeks. “Students are coming for remedial classes and for doubt clearing.

Students also prefer offline classes than online as they interact with teachers and get a better learning experience. But if Covid situation worsens in coming days then government may have to again close down the offline classes and we have to follow the rules,” she added.

Amid rising Covid cases Kendriya Vidyalaya-1 resumed offline classes for class IX students on Monday. “We resumed offline classes according to CBSE guidelines to start new academic session from April 1 and following the guidelines of state government to start on-campus classes for students of class IX and XII.

Attendance though remained thin on Monday. Parents’ consent is a must for students to attend physical classes,” said Bhupender Singh, vice-principal of KV-1.

Meanwhile, parents are in a dilemma over whether to send their wards to schools or not. “I am really confused. I know offline classes are much more effective than online classes but at a time when Covid cases are increasing should I allow my child to go out?

I did not send him today and will take a call after consulting other parents and doctors,” said Anupama Mallik, parent of a class IX student.
