Srinagar: Schools in Kashmir Valley reopened on Tuesday after a winter vacation of more than two months with students attending classes braving the morning chill.

"All the government and private schools in the Valley today reopened after the two-month long winter vacations", an official spokesman said.

Schools in Kashmir region usually remain closed from mid-December to early March every year as the average minimum temperature plunges below freezing point.

The schools under the limits of Srinagar Municipal Corporation will remain open from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm and those outside between 11 am to 4 pm till March 31st.

A separate timing will soon be announced for the summer season, the spokesman said.

The state government had earlier issued a notice to the Valley schools asking them to strictly adhere to the academic calendar in the background of last year's summer unrest, when all schools in the region remained shut during most of the season.
