On Tuesday, the school sent out a message to parents informing them of the meeting and stating that only those with valid parent authentication cards will be allowed inside the school for the meeting. These will be checked by the police at the entrance.

“The meeting will be an opportunity to get an explanation from the school with regard to the incidents. A decision on reopening the school will also be taken at the meeting,” DCP (East) N Satheesh said.

According to H N Ramesh, BEO (South 4), the classes are likely to be restarted for the higher sections. “Classes 10,9  are likely to be started on Friday, followed by middle school, then primary and pre-primary,” Ramesh said.

Over the last few days, including Tuesday, parents of students have been going to school in an effort to meet someone from the school management to find out when classes will reopen.
