Odisha: Schools to reopen on June 21, Collectors of 7 districts to take call on morning classes, holidays

Bhubaneswar: All schools in Odisha will reopen on June 21 after the conclusion of summer vacation, said the School and Mass Education (S&ME) department today.

“It has been decided to reopen all schools on June 21 with regular timetable after due consideration of the weather prediction,” said S&ME department Additional Secretary Durga Prasad Mohapatra in a letter to all collectors today.

However, as a measure of abundant caution, Collectors of Sundargarh, Sambalpur, Jharsuguda, Bargarh, Angul, Sonepur and Bolangir are authorized to shift to morning classes and declare holidays if the situation so demands, he added.

“The S&ME department is keeping a close watch on the weather condition for further action,” Mohapatra said.

The summer vacation had commenced on April 21 in view of the heat wave conditions in the state.

The schools were earlier scheduled to reopen on June 19. However, the date was extended to June 21 due to the prevailing heatwave condition in Odisha.
