The schools in the Valley had been closed for the two-week summer break. However, as Kashmir Valley witnessed its worst turmoil in decades in the aftermath of the killing of militant commander Burhan Muzaffar Wani on July 8, normal life remained paralysed for five months.
When the unrest subsided, the schools were shut again on account of winter break on December 17. Due to the closure of schools, the J&K government had announced mass promotion for all students to the next grade in November last year except for Class X and XII students who appeared for the annual board examinations.
On the first day of reopening, thousands of children dressed in uniforms, resumed academic activity despite rainfall, which brought down the mercury. After staying home for eight months, students were eager to go back to schools.
An official of the school education department said, previously the schools had remained closed continuously for five months from December 1989 to May 1990.
