LAHORE: Schools and colleges re-opened for classes 1 to 12 with a 50 percent attendance basis on alternative days on Monday.
The timing for the summer season was announced by the Punjab government the previous week which was decided after taking the harsh weather in mind. While the timing for classes nursery to 8th will be from 7:30 am to 11.30 am and for classes 9th to 12th the timings will be 7:15 am to 12:00 pm.
However, thin attendance was observed as parents want the vaccination process to be completed before the opening of schools. The parents are concerned about the opening of schools without vaccination of teachers and students and claimed that earlier when schools were opened, a large number of COVID-19 cases were reported in schools and colleges. The reason parents believed that students don’t follow SOPs while mingling with their peers and schools are failed to implement proper SOPs.
