All schools in Tamil Nadu reopened today as scheduled, following an order from the directorate of education. Arrangements have been made to distribute books and other materials on that day itself.
Although, the dog days, which began on May 4, came to an end on Saturday, weather department has forecast that temparatures will remain high for the next four or five days. Therefore, parents were hoping that the government may postpone school reopening.
Minno Aggarwal, principal, DAV Public School, said that since schools start early in the morning and finish by 4 pm, students would not suffer much.
