Early Times Report
UDHAMPUR, Mar 4: Though a woman lecturer was yesterday declared COVID-19 positive yet the school where she is posted remained functional as usual with students and teachers making their presence thereby threatening their lives.
While in a similar development, a government school in Bishnah area of Jammu was closed for two days and all the teachers and students were asked to get themselves tested for the pandemic.
However, the corona positive lecturer didn't attend the school after being declared infected.
Sources informed that a woman lecturer at Government Higher Secondary School (GHSS) Charayi zone Tikri in Udhampur district was found COVID-19 positive but authorities of her school didn't bother to order closure of the school.
Parents of students and family members of the staff have expressed resentment against the lackadaisical approach of the school authorities.
It is pertinent to mention here that a lady lecturer at Government Higher Secondary School Boys Bishnah today tested positive for COVID after which the Education Department immediately ordered closure of the school for two days and all staff members and students were asked to get themselves tested.
Shockingly, as per sources all routine work remained as usual at the Udhamur school today even after confirmation of positive case of COVID there and the Chief Education Officer (CEO) Udhampur too attended a meeting in the same school a day before when positive case was found.
When contacted Principal of the School Dawarka Nath claimed that the infected lecturer and her contacts including teachers and students were given holiday and report was sent to Chief Medical Officer Udhampur as well as Education Department.
He also claimed that all the classes were suspended today except 8th and 9th but insiders produced documents which are in possession of Early Times showing students as well as staff members including teaching and non-teaching staff from 1st to 12th class attended the school today with about 184 students attending in the first shift (morning) of all classes and about 114 in the second shift.
Locals expressed resentment over the irresponsible attitude of the concerned principal for playing with the lives of innocent students.
When contacted Chief Education Officer Parshotam Dutt said he was not in the town and the school will remain closed and will open only after fogging.
