After the re-opening of primary schools, the Jammu and Kashmir government has decided to re-open all middle-level schools across Kashmir Valley from Wednesday. Classes resumed in 190 schools in Srinagar on Monday as the district administration made all necessary arrangements to ensure safety and security of the students, an official spokesperson said.
The areas where schools re-opened include Lasjan, Sangri, Panthachowk, Nowgam, Rajbagh, Jawahar Nagar, Gagribal, Dhara, Theed, Batmaloo and Shalteng.
Earlier, deputy commissioner Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, addressing the meeting, said safety and security of students is the prime concern of the district administration and all necessary arrangements have been made to ensure that.
Compensatory classes would also be held later this month to make up for the days lost, Choudhary said.
The district administration has offered the school managements all required assistance and support to restart the classes, the spokesman said.
Curfew-like restrictions were put in place in most parts of Jammu and Kashmir on August 5, hours before the Centre's move to scrap provisions of Article 370 and reorganise the state into two union territories.
