Continuing from their earlier notifications, the SED and HED jointly announced an extension to the winter vacation until January 9, 2024, superseding the initial schedule set from December 18 to December 31.

As per the revised timetable, both public and private schools and colleges are mandated to resume regular classes on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, marking the start of a full and regular school week for all students.

While the extension brings relief to students, it’s crucial to note that certain COVID-19 safety measures will persist. The SED notification emphasizes the mandatory wearing of face masks within school premises, ensuring the safety and well-being of students and staff.

Furthermore, the Chief Executive Officers of District Education Authorities (DEAs) in their respective districts have received specific directives to ensure strict compliance with these orders.

This decision to extend the winter vacation is in alignment with the recent ruling of the Lahore High Court, reflecting the court’s consideration of the current circumstances.

The move intends to balance academic continuity with the necessity to uphold safety measures amid ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, prioritizing the well-being of students, teachers, and educational staff across Punjab.
