Many schools in the region have applied an odd-even formula which entails having only 50% of students on campus on any given day.

Teachers of the elementary classes (up to class 8) have been asked to attend the schools from March 1 for preparation while the students shall physically attend the classes from March 8, an official said.

Last week, colleges opened in Kashmir after more than 11 months after the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic prompted closure of educational institutions across the valley.

Even before the COVID-19 forced their closure, the educational institutes remained closed for nearly a year on account of the security and communication clampdown following the revocation of the Article 370 on 5 August 2019.

In the revised guidelines on COVID-19 containment measures issued in January this year, the administration had allowed schools, colleges, higher educational institutions, technical or skill development institutions to reopen from February 1.

The government has time and again stressed that the notified Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) guidelines shall remain unaltered and shall be followed in “letter and spirit”.
