The purpose of this was to allow schools to carry out activities such as collection of fees and disbursement of teacher salaries. Even though the administrative offices were allowed to open they could only have two people present based on the SOPs issued on 18 April 2020 that were to be followed by Punjab schools.
Below are the details regarding all standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the government for schools to operate their administrative offices.
