After being closed for about a year-and-a-half, schools in Maharashtra's Pune district reopened for physical classes on Monday. Students were seen excited while entering their schools and authorities welcomed them back, as physical sessions resumed for classes 8 to 12 in the city and for Classes 5 to 12 in rural areas of the district.


Last month, Maharashtra's School Education Minister Varsha Gaikwad had announced that physical classes will resume in schools across the state on October 4.


As per the standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the state government for the reopening of schools, it is not mandatory for students to attend physical classes. If they want to attend, they will have to submit consent letters from their parents.


At many places, instead of the school transport, parents came to drop the students outside the educational institutions.


Maharashtra Headmaster Association state spokesperson Mahendra Ganpule told PTI that schools in Pune city and rural areas of the district were following all SOPs laid down by the state government for the resumption of physical classes.
