Bhubaneswar: The Directorate of Higher Secondary Education (DHSE) on Friday directed all Higher Secondary Schools in Odisha to carry out sanitisation and cleaning of their campuses.
DHSE Director Brundaban Behera, in a letter to the Principals of all Government and Non-Government (Aided/Unaided) Higher Secondary Schools asked them to comply with the requirements in a week.
Behera informed that the resumption of physical mode of learning in all higher secondary schools in the State is hampered due to the Covid pandemic since March 2020. However, the school campus needs sanitation and cleaning.
Further, accessories and amenities like functional drinking water, toilets, classrooms, laboratory and equipment need to be brought to the pre-Covid situation, he added.
In view of this, the DHSE Director asked the Principals to take up the matter as expeditiously as possible and inform the status of the above requirements by return post preferably within a week.
