Most schools will operate in two batches of three to four hours each. “Our higher secondary students come in at 7am and leave at 10.30 am. We will bring Class 5-7 students at 10.45am. A call on primary students will be taken after the senior students settle down in their classrooms,” said the principal of a Chembur school.
