The Minister for General Education, K. Sivankutty and Minister for Health Veena George handed over the guidelines for measures to be adopted by parents, students and teacher for re-opening of schools in Kerala on November 1 to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, reported the Hindu.

As per the guidelines, classes will be held in the morning sessions and students will be divided in batches. One batch will come to school for three days, while the other batch will come for the next three days. Online classes will continue for the batches on the days when they do not come to class. Further, only two students will be allowed to sit on each bench.

Mid-day meals will be provided in schools, but the interval timings will be staggered to prevent crowding. All teaching and non-teaching staff must be fully vaccinated and come to school on all working days.

Schools should maintain a register to keep record of the illness/ symptoms shown by any of its students and must have a functional sick room for such children. Schools should also setup helplines. The guidelines also refer to the details of sanitation, cleaning and disinfection of schools.

Detailed guidelines on academic matters will be issued later. The guidelines will be approved after any changes if necessary and be issued in the form of a Government Order.
