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.
