The Schools in Andhra Pradesh Reopen Partially for Class 9 and 10th Students, The Union government had earlier given permission for schools to start classes as part of Unlock 4.0 from September 21. Following this, Andhra Pradesh decided to open schools partially. The students can attend school to meet teachers and clear doubts in person or carry on classes online.
“Schools in Andhra Pradesh will reopen starting from Monday. Students from Class 9 and Class 10 may attend regular classes according to their wish or connect online,” said an official. Schools in Andhra Pradesh are reopening after a span of six months. Though the students are allowed to take a call on attending the classes in person or to listen to them online, they will require consent from their parents or guardians in writing to attend the school physically.
