Important Notifications

The Kerala education department has announced that the draft state curriculum framework will be unveiled on September 21, 2023. Additionally, Plus One improvement exams have been postponed to October 9, 2023, due to concerns related to the Nipah virus. The exams will continue until October 16, 2023.

It’s worth noting that the state government previously declared the closure of all schools, colleges, and educational institutions in Kozhikode, Kerala, until September 24, 2023, in response to the Nipah virus outbreak. The Kozhikode administration identified seven village areas as containment zones to control the situation. These areas include Atanchery, Maruthonkara, Tiruvallur, Kuttiyadi, Kayakkodi, Villyapalli, and Kavilumpara.

About Nipah Virus

The Nipah virus infection can lead to varying degrees of illness, ranging from mild to severe. In severe cases, it may result in significant brain swelling (encephalitis) and, tragically, even death. To combat the spread of the virus, local government offices have been instructed by the district collector to maintain minimal staff levels. Banks, government institutions, schools, and Anganwadis are directed not to operate during this period.

It is crucial for students and their families to stay updated on the latest developments regarding the exams and the Nipah virus situation. Taking appropriate precautions and following official guidelines are of utmost importance during these challenging times.
