Earlier, the Haryana government had decided to reopen schools for students of Classes 6 to 8 from 1 February 2021. Classes for students of 9 to 12 had already resumed in mid-September.

Since the reopening comes amid pandemic concerns, the government has laid down some COVID-19 protocols to be followed, such as temperature checks for students and teachers.
