Authorities in Jammu and Kashmir on Monday announced 48-day summer vacation for educational institutions up to Class 12, including recognised private schools, falling in the summer zone of the Jammu division. An official order said all government and recognised private schools up to class 12 falling in Jammu division (summer zone) would observe summer vacation from June 8 to July 25 as per past practice.

Educational institutions including universities, colleges and schools were closed across the Union Territory in April following a spike in Covid-19 cases, but the students are attending their classes through online mode from their homes. While schools in Kashmir and parts of Jammu falling under the winter zone close for nearly three-month winter vacation and a 10-day summer vacation annually, the summer zone schools in Jammu usually have one-and-a-half month summer vacation, and a brief winter break every year.
