The school campuses will have to be made ready for reopening after necessary cleaning and sanitisation against COVID-19. The hostels are also directed to be opened and made functional after proper sanitisation.

The letter also said, “A COVID-19 general guideline on reopening of schools in the form of advisory and already circulated to all concerned and as is available on the website of the department, may kindly be referred and read with latest guidelines issued by the Health & Family Department, Government of West Bengal.”

Many private schools in West Bengal had started online classes after the summer vacation was extended while many schools in Kolkata, especially the schools under the Church of North India (CNI) decided to reopen as there was an improvement in the weather.
