Six local levels resume schools, four others planning  

KHOTANG – Six out of 10 local levels in the district have resumed schools while four others are planning for it. Six levels have resumed schools after the federal government gave authority to the local levels to continue teaching-learning activities that had been disrupted due to the pandemic.

The strict implementation of health safety standards have been stressed with the resumption of schools. Several local levels are also planning for it, although the fear of the virus is still gripping people.

The Diktel Rupakot Majhuwagadhi Municipality in the district has resumed its schools by adhering to health and safety standards. Teachers and employees at the schools have been provided orientation on maintaining safety before resuming the class and the use of sanitizer, mask and thermal gun have been taught for the safety of teachers, employees and students.

The municipality has asked the schools to not conduct morning assemblies but run classes by maintaining physical distance. There will be only two students sitting on a bench. The teachers, parents, students and other staff will be required to wear masks and use sanitizers. Every school has been provided with a thermal gun by the municipality.

There are more than 100 schools including private-run in the municipality.

Similarly, a focal person in each school will take stock of the student’s health condition. The students are not allowed to walk outside in a carefree manner but walk straight to school from home. They have also been urged not to exchange textbooks and stationeries with friends. If the student develops a fever, he/she will be requested to stay at home.

According to mayor Dipnarayan Rijal, “The schools are directed to resume classes by following 29-point health and safety standards.”

Moreover, Haleshi Tuwachung Municipality which has 88 community and four private schools is all set to resume classes in a safe way, according to Mayor Iwan Rai.

Rawabeshi Rural Municipality began classes six days ago. A meeting of the education committee has been called on how teaching activities can be made safer and effective.

Aishelukharka is another Rural Municipality which is set to resume schools. The local level has asked to run class based on odd-even roll numbers. Chief of the rural municipality Bishwonath Niraula informed that the schools began classes last Sunday.

Khotehang Rural Municipality has called a meeting for the resumption of schools, which will make the decision, according to Chairman Pradip Kumar Rai. There are 49 community and two private schools.

Preparations are underway in other local levels such as Sakela Rural Municipality and Bahrapokhari Rural Municipality to conduct classes in a safe manner.
