Schools to re-open from Wednesday in Kargil
Kargil: Kargil District Magistrate has ordered the re-opening of schools for class 6 to 8 from September 1, reports said.
District Magistrate Santosh Sukhadeve ordered the reopening of schools for classes 6th to 8th with effect from September 1 nearly a month after they were reopened in Ladakh for higher classes including standard 9th and above.
In an order issued on Monday, Sukhadeve, who is also chairperson of the district disaster management authority, said the decision to reopen classes from 6th to 8th was taken in view of various representations received by his office and the improved Covid-19 situation in the district.
However, he said the head of the institutions would ensure that Covid guidelines issued by the administration and the Kargil Chief Education Officer are followed in letter and spirit.
“Any violation of these orders shall invite action under Section 188 of IPC, Disaster Management Act 2005 and Epidemic Diseases Act 1897,” District Magistrate Santosh Sukhadeve warned. (KNT)
