The State government, on Saturday, announced that all schools would reopen on July 1 for offline classes. However, several parents in Hyderabad are still scared to send their children to schools,
amidst reports of a possible third wave which is said to affect kids. Parents are anxious about the safety protocols that will be followed in schools and if at all they be adequate.
Hima Bindu Kotha, mother of 10-year-old K Meenakshi studying in MNS school, says that she can’t risk the life of her child by sending her to school. She said, “Online classes are already happening.
So why do we have to force the children to physically go to schools, especially at a time when there are no vaccines for them? The last time when the government had announced that is starting offline classes,
just before the second wave hit TS, there were many reports that a lot of children got infected by Covid. This time the same might happen.”
