After Delhi, Haryana government Wednesday announced summer vacation in schools till May 31. The decision has been taken due to spike in COVID-19 cases in the state. “The schools will remain closed on account of summer holidays from April 22 to May 31,” Haryana’s Education Minister Kanwar Pal Wednesday said in a tweet.
Earlier this month, the state government had decided to close schools till April 30 for students up to class 8, but later they were shut for all classes in the wake of a sharp rise in coronavirus cases. However, teachers had been attending schools to prepare examination results.
