According to the plan, reported by Channel 13 but yet to be approved by the government, preschools and kindergartens will reopen after the Sukkot holiday, which ends October 9.

Elementary schools up to fourth grade will reopen two weeks later.

Fifth grade and up will be closed for months, until after the Hanukkah holiday that ends December 18.
