However, parents of many students complained of hardships in dropping & picking up their wards in the absence of school transport.

In the revised guidelines on COVID containment measures issued last month, the Jammu & Kashmir administration had allowed schools, colleges, higher educational institutions, technical or skill development institutions to reopen from February 1.

However, the schools in Kashmir & winter zone areas of Jammu will reopen after the winter break later this month or early next month depending on the weather conditions.

” We welcome reopening of the schools after a long break… the school is a must for the overall development of a child but the school management needs to follow the government guidelines strictly for the safety of the children,” Prashant Sharma said after dropping his son, a class 3 student, at a private school.
