In view of the heatwave conditions, the Jammu administration has decided to reschedule the summer vacation in schools from May 28.
Earlier it was planned from June 4 of this year.
It need be mentioned that the city recorded the season’s highest maximum temperature of 41.4 degrees Celsius yesterday.
This rise in temperature forced the school authorities to review the vacation date.
It is in this context that the School Education department issued a revised order for the summer vacation from May 28 to July 15 will be issued today itself.
The decision to prepone the summer break was taken in view of the sudden rise in the mercury over the past couple of days, it was said.
The schools will reopen after the summer vacation on July 16.>
