'If the student carries any doubts after attending online classes, they can come and attend the school, provided that they carry their own sanitizer and face mask and gloves. We have also set up a sanitiser at the school. The students and parents must sign a declaration saying their ward doesn't carry any symptoms of COVID-19 and would take proper care of themselves,' she said.

The Headmistress said that though fewer students turned up at school on the first day, the administration is expecting the count will increase in the coming days.

'Being the first day, less number of students turned up to the schools, but coming days we are expecting the student count might increase and we have taken all the precautionary steps required,' she said.
