Furthermore, it's been highlighted that January 13 and 14, being the second Saturday and Sunday respectively, will mark the resumption of physical schooling for primary classes starting January 15.

However, while primary sections are exempt from in-person classes, the directive indicates that schools for other classes (VI to XII) will reopen from January 8. To account for weather concerns, the directive mandated that schools should not commence before 8 AM and must conclude classes by 5 PM.

The Education Directorate also made it clear that all teaching and non-teaching staff are expected to report for duty on January 8. Additionally, to ensure awareness among students, parents, and staff about these measures, schools have been urged to utilize various communication channels such as bulk SMS, phone calls, and suitable means via the School Management Committee (SMC).
