After more than five months of a lockdown enforced to contain the spread of the coronavirus, schools in Andhra Pradesh reopened for classes 9th and 10th from today.

Students of class 9th and 10th were seen standing in queues for schools as their temperature was recorded and face masks and sanitizers were provided to them.

Students of class 6th to 8th will also be called in from November 23, after which sessions will be scheduled on alternate days for different classes.

The Andhra Pradesh government had recently announced that schools and colleges will be opened in Andhra Pradesh from November 2 and classes for 9th, 10th, Intermediate First Year (11th) and Intermediate Second Year (12th) will be held for half-day.

Schools and colleges have remained shut since March-end when the Central government imposed a lockdown in a bid to arrest the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As per a press statement from the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister's Office, the classes for 1st to 5th standards in all government and private educational institutes will start from December 14.
