Three schools in Kolkata have been shut down due to the spread of Covid-19 on their campuses. Several students and teachers tested positive for the virus and hence the decision to shut down the campuses was taken by the authorities on Wednesday.

La Martiniere for Boys and The Frank Anthony Public School shut down their campuses till March 27 and March 29, respectively, as one student each of the two schools tested positive for Covid-19, the authorities have conveyed.

A class 10 student of The Frank Anthony Public School was found to be Covid-positive after attending classes on the campus on Sunday, Principal IT Myers said in a notice, as per PTI reports.

Class 10, 12 exams to be rescheduled

As the students and teachers from these schools will be attending classes from home for a few days, the authorities have stated that the exams for classes 10 and 12 for some subjects will be rescheduled after reviewing the situation further.

“The class 10 and 12 exams that have not been conducted will be rescheduled and students will be informed of the changed schedule. The open house stands cancelled and the alternate date will be intimated to parents at the earliest,” the principal said.

“Therefore, all remaining Rehearsal Examinations for classes 10 and 12 will shift from the onsite to the online mode. The online schedule as given earlier will be followed,” he said. St Lawrence High School said sanitisation drive in its campus is underway after the Covid-19 case was detected.
