Schools able to do so reopened from the first week of September, all schools will reopen from September 14.
Local plans and preparations are underway to ensure individual schools can welcome pupils back safely in line with guidance by Welsh Government.
Some specific groups of learners might need to be prioritised during this week, such as Year 7, 12, 13 and Special Units for secondary, special units for early years and Year 6.
Parents will receive more specific information from their school and the council as it becomes available.
