The Commission on Technogenic and Environmental Safety and Emergencies of Sumy has recommended that secondary schools and kindergartens in the northeastern Ukrainian oblast switch to mixed online and offline instruction, the city council said in a statement published on March 22.

Although each educational institution has the right to make its own decision, taking into account the opinion of parents, the commission urges schools, kindergartens, and extracurricular educational institutions to adopt this approach.

Nineteen city schools will resume classes on March 25, while students in 21 other institutions will continue their break for another week.

In addition, the Commission has given permission to the heads of educational institutions to request an early end to the heating season from heating companies. The decision regarding the end of the heating season in the residential sector will be discussed by the Commission next week.

Russian troops have been consistently shelling residential areas in Sumy Oblast with various types of weaponry.

Russia launched 800 shelling attacks on Sumy Oblast in a 48-hour period from March 13-14 — as many as in the last six months combined, reported Sumy Regional Administration head, Volodymyr Artyukh, on March 14.
