Most private schools had sought no-objection certificates from parents, absolving the school management of any blame in case of any health issue due to the conduct of physical classes. Several schools had asked students to bring along medical fitness certificates on the first day of school.
Adhering to the guidelines issued by the authorities, the schools in the UT are opening in a staggered manner. They have also applied an odd-even formula which entails having only 50% of students on campus on a particular day.
