With Coronavirus infections shooting up once more just ahead of the beginning of the academic year, city schools said they will reopen with all protections in place, making students’ safety their top priority. While a majority of them are scheduled to reopen on June 9, 13 and 15, schools are hoping the school education department and the BMC will issue fresh Covid guidelines soon to make it easier for them to implement them.
