Haryana Government has announced summer vacations for all schools in the state starting tomorrow – April 22, 2021 till May 31, 2021. The decision was taken to avoid teachers attending schools in the state.
Haryana Schools have been ordered shut and summer vacations announced. Haryana Education Minister Kanwar Pal Gujjar today announced that all schools in the state would begin their summer vacations from tomorrow – April 22, 2021. Schools would close for summer vacations from April 22 to May 31, 2021.
As per the Education Minister, “Summer vacation declared in schools in Haryana state. The holidays will be in the schools from 22 April to 31 May. Teachers are constantly coming to school, along with the safety of the children, the safety of the teachers is also our responsibility, so the summer holidays were done in advance. #haryanaeducation”
Earlier the Education Minister had ordered the schools to be closed from April 19 onwards for even classes 9 to 12. The order was given in view of permitting online classes but restricting physical classes. However, it was noted that many private schools were insisting on teachers to attend the schools.
To avoid the same and to ensure complete closure of schools, the government has now decided to announce early summer vacations. The decision comes closely after Delhi Government;s decision to pre-pone summer vacations in the capital. For Delhi, all schools have been ordered shut for summer vacations from April 21 to June 9.
Detailed notice is awaited in regards the summer vacations. Whether it would be applicable to only government and aided schools or would include private schools is not known. If, however, it is as per Delhi Government, the same would be applicable to all public, private, aided and government school in the state.
