"Schools to reopen from Class 1 to Class 8 from December 6: Schools in Pondicherry that have been closed for nearly two years due to the Corona epidemic will reopen. Education Minister Mr. A. Namachchivayam announced," Namassivayam said in a social media post.

Director of School Education Rudra Goud told PTI that classes would be held half-a-day for the standards one to eight and on alternate days. All safety protocols would be followed and attendance would not be compulsory.

No decision was taken on restarting mid-day meal programme for students of classes one to eight now and decision would be taken in course of time, he said.

Schools remained closed since March last year because of prevalence of Covid-19. Although institutions were sought to be reopened, the date of reopening was postponed because of the pandemic.
