With the lockdown period covering summer vacations, several schools are planning to go for “online break” in between online classes. On Wednesday, as communique regarding a break was sent to the parents of South Point High School students by the school authorities.

“All stakeholders perhaps require a break, therefore it has been decided that there will be a short recess from May 11 to May 16. Classes will not be held during the above mentioned period, but assignments will be uploaded, which the pupils will have to complete and email by May 17. Online classes will resume from May 18,” the letter said.

“We are planning multiple short breaks instead of a long one. Delivering online lectures is exacting for both teachers and students, but a long break will hamper the rhythm of this new method of delivering education. So we decided on short breaks,” said school spokesperson Krishna Damani.

Some schools are also holding online classes in a staggered manner. “We are giving relief to the students. We are teaching for three weeks and then suspending classes for a week. The summer holidays are being rolled out in this phased manner,” said principal of Vivekananda Mission School Sarmistha Banerjee.

Lakshmipat Singhania Academy has started to plan ways to implement the online break. “Our teachers have been providing online classes since the end of March. They prepare the videos, upload study materials, give assignments and then evaluate the tasks. Our month-long summer vacations were to begin from May 15. We now plan to offer some online break to both teachers and students,” said principal Meena Kak.

In St. James’ School, online classes are being held every day. The teachers have prepared videos, online materials and assignments, which will be distributed to the students till the end of the month. “We shall then opt for an online break of 10 days and reopen the school after June 10, as instructed by the state government,” said Principal T H Ireland.

At Don Bosco School Park Circus, instead of giving the students a month-long summer holiday, the vacations will be reduced to three weeks in order to complete the projects. “During that time, online classes will remain suspended,” said principal Bikash Mondal.
