Fresh SOP: Assam shuts down physical classes upto Class VIII indefinitely

Guwahati: In a slight modification of the earlier standard operating procedure (SOP), all schools in the state upto Class VIII have been shut down indefinitely owing to the Covid19 situation in Assam.

Earlier, all government and private schools up to Class V were ordered to close across the state till January 30 excluding the city. In Guwahati, schools were asked to remain closed for students up to Class VIII.

The fresh SOP issued on Monday said, “Physical instruction in all schools upto class Vlll in all districts shall be suspended and all such educational institutions shall migrate to virtual options until further orders. The situation shall be reviewed regularly and necessary instructions shall be issued by the education department.”

It added that all educational institutions including schools/colleges/universities shall continue to provide quality virtual options.

However, physical classes for students beyond Class VIII remained unchanged. Physical classes of Classes 9 to 11 will be run on rotation mode (three days a week) while Class 12, engineering colleges, medical colleges, and technical institutes will run as usual, it added.

“Physical classes shall be allowed on alternate days for class lX and above in all districts. The physical classes in respect of Degree/Post-Graduate final year students of Engineering, Medical Colleges may be allowed with fully vaccinated students,” the SOP said.

The night curfew hours from 10PM to 6 AM remained intact. However, chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has hinted on a relaxation of curfew hours from February.

Assam currently has a positivity rate of around 12.57%.
