THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The bio-bubble model, which is one of the key suggestions in the final guidelines on school reopening released on Friday, is aimed at preventing Covid spread among a large number of students and thereby ensuring uninterrupted academic activity in schools. In the bio-bubble model, a small batch of students interact only among each other and a limited number of teachers and staff.
Schools will reopen on November 1 for classes 1 to 7 and also classes 10 and 12. For classes 8, 9 and 11, the reopening date is November 15. Classes will be held from Monday to Saturday (except public holidays).
