State Minister Premajayantha said today, classes for students in Grades 10, 11, 12 and 13 resumed.
He said next week they will hold discussions pertaining to reopening schools for other grades.
The State Minister in response to a question raised by Parliamentarian Mujibur Rahman said permission could also be granted to resume tuition classes.
He said they are looking at the possibility of granting permission to conduct tuition classes for students in upper grades promptly.
