These institutions have asked the students to come to schools or colleges wearing casual clothes near to their uniforms for the time being.

Some educational institutions have sent notices to the parents informing this while some others did not give notice till last Thursday, but have decided not to compel the students to wear uniforms immediately after reopening of the educational institutions.

The schools or colleges that have given temporary exemption to students for wearing certain clothes include Navy School and College in the capital, Sir John Wilson School, St Joseph High School and College in the capital.

Subrata Kumar Golder, a teacher of Viqarunnisa Noon School and College, told the Bangladesh Post, “We have relaxed wearing uniforms for our students for a couple of weeks so the students and their parents get enough time to buy uniforms.”

He said that if the announcement is made, all the students can come wearing casual clothes. However, those who will come without uniforms won’t be questioned if they show logical reasons.

Tailors are passing busy time. Many students and parents rushed to libraries and tailor’s to purchase books, exercise books, pen, pencil, other kits and uniforms. Students and their guardians started preparing for classes after hearing the news of reopening of the educational institutions.

All educational institutions in the country were declared closed on March 17 last year considering the coronavirus situation. Now, the educational institutions are going to be reopened maintain health guidelines strictly.
