Summer Break Begins On May 2nd For Children In Grades 1 Through 9 And 11 In Maharashtra.

Summer break has been declared by the Maharashtra government for kids in grades 1 through 9 and 11 from May 2 to June 12.

The schools will now reopen on June 13th.

The state education authority issued a GR on March 28 ordering schools to operate full days on Saturdays instead of half days and voluntarily on Sundays through April 30.

Harishchandra Gaikwad, president of the Pune District Principals’ Association, has previously stated that instead of issuing a GR, the state education department should have advanced school opening dates for the next academic session to June 7 or 8, rather than June 15.

Maharashtra’s schools reopened to all students in January after the state government declared them safe for children. This decision was made after the number of daily Covid-19 cases in the state began to decline.

As the heatwave raises the maximum temperature in the country’s northern regions, western India is also feeling the effects.

For the kids, the traditional summer break is a welcome relief.

The state of Maharashtra reported 41 new Covid-19 cases on Monday, the lowest daily count in over two years, bringing the total number of cases to 78,75,211, according to the state’s health department.

Maharashtra had a positivity rate of 0.002 percent or cases discovered per 100 tests.
