All kindergartens and schools resumed their work on Monday morning in Nalchik. Psychologists started working with those people, who suffered a serious shock as a result of the attack on the city, a spokesperson for the city administration said. “Psychologists will render necessary help to children who study in School No.5: those children witnessed the battle between the terrorists and the federal troops because the school is situated in the city's center, where most of the armed clashes occurred,” an official from the city administration said.

Schoolchildren are still scared to go to school; parents worry about them a lot too in spite of the fact that every school of the city has been provided with armed security guards. Schools started working in Nalchik on Monday, although a lot of schoolchildren were too afraid to go out and preferred to stay at home. It is worthy of note that there were no victims among either schoolchildren or teachers, Itar Tass said.

The city transport is up and running, shops and markets are open too. Nalchik's streets look rather busy in the afternoon. Local residents understand the need of numerous soldiers and police officers in the streets of the city, although the city looks deserted at night.
