Schools in Punjab and KP were scheduled to reopen on January 6 and 7 respectively; however, both provincial governments extended the vacations till January 12 due to extreme weather conditions.
“In the wake of weather conditions, the winter vacations are hereby extended w.e.f 07.01.2020 to 12.01.2020 in all public & private schools in Punjab. All schools (public & private) shall re-open on January 13, 2020,” the Punjab School Education Department had said on January 6.
