Reopening Schools from September 21, 2020: List of states which are resuming classes

In Unlock 4 guidelines, the ministry of home affairs allowed states to reopen schools from September 21. Reopening schools from September 21 is not mandatory and several states have decided against it — due to  the increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the country.

In Delhi, schools will remain closed until October 5, the government said on Friday. Earlier, it had decided to allow senior students ( classes 9 to 12) to attend schools for teachers’ guidance only if their parents allow. But now it has clarified that there will be no partial reopening of the schools in Delhi before October 5. 

Haryana: Like in Delhi, senior students can visit their schools if they need guidance but schools will remain closed. Two government schools in Haryana’s Karnal and Sonepat have already opened on a trial basis. 

Andhra Pradesh: Only public, private, aided educational institutions outside containment zones will reopen. 

Assam: From Monday, classes will resume for students between class 9 and 12 for the next 15 days following which the situation will be reviewed.

Himachal Pradesh: The Himachal Pradesh government has decided to reopen schools from Classes 9 to 12 from Monday only outside containment zones.

Karnataka: Partial reopening of schools allowed from September 21, but regular classes will not resume. Only senior students can come to schools if they need guidance.
