Following the ceasefire, Beersheba, Ashdod, and the Bnei Shimon Regional Council are a few of the many Israeli schools that are scheduled to open their doors to students on Monday.

However, there will be some delays, the Be'er Tuvia Regional Council, just east of Ashdod, will begin its transportation an hour later than usual, at 8:15 a.m. Ben Gurion University of the Negev will also have a late start and begin at 12:00 p.m.

After almost 700 rockets fired from Gaza, the Home Front Command announced its decision to lift all restrictions for Gaza border communities.

Despite the lifting of restrictions, Sha'ar Hanegev Regional council, the area in Israel to the north of the strip said that their schools will remain closed. They reasoned that most of their staff were outside of the region and would give the residents a day to normalize.

The Municipality of Ashkelon also decided to keep schools closed on Monday.
