Noida News: Amid escalating pollution levels in Gautam Buddha Nagar, the district administration has taken a proactive step by ordering the closure of schools up to class 10th. Presently, Noida and Greater Noida are grappling with severe pollution levels, causing concern among parents about the safety of their children while attending school. Notably, schools in Delhi have already been shuttered in response to the worsening air quality, and now students in Gautam Buddha Nagar will shift to online learning.
District Magistrate’s Directive:
In the official order issued by Gautam Buddha Nagar District Magistrate Manish Verma, it has been decreed that all schools catering to students up to the ninth grade will remain closed. The decision stems from the fact that the district’s Air Quality Index (AQI) has surged into the “serious” category. As a result, schools for students up to class 9 are to be temporarily closed until further notice, with education continuing through online classes.
This move underscores the administration’s commitment to safeguarding the health and well-being of students in the face of deteriorating air quality, ensuring that learning persists through digital platforms until the pollution situation improves.
