Furthermore, the association of private schools in Punjab have also issued a notification. As per the notification, the schools will be closed from 24th to 31st December 2018. The schools have to follow the instruction of the education department. In case of any violation, a legalaction will be taken against them.
Back in 2017, some schools did extend the winter vacations due to the extreme cold weather and smog problem. As it was a hazard to the student health, the vacations were extended. Chances are that if again weather gets extremely cold, vacations might be extended.
The winter vacations have not been announced in the rest of the provinces of Pakistan. Usually, schools conduct papers and then give a two-week break to students so that they can enjoy cold weather from the comfort of their home and have a break from the busy study schedule.
