In many areas, it has been decided to keep schools closed for a few more days due to the declining temperature and escalating cold. Many states closed schools for younger students at the beginning of January as a result of the cold snap. Despite the Meteorological Department's warning that cold outbreaks could continue for a few more days. The administration may issue a fresh order in such a case. For the time being, all schools in Punjab and Haryana would be closed.
Winter break has been extended for Chandigarh city schools by Punjab. For classes LKG through 8, the break has been extended until January 21, 2023. This only applies to Chandigarh City; the remainder of the state has not been announced. Due to the state's poor weather, the Haryana Directorate of School Education has prolonged the state's winter break till January 21. The schools will resume on January 23 instead of January 16, as originally planned, due to the colder weather.
