Students in Punjab and Haryana are set for a break as schools close on May 10, 2024. This closure marks Parshuram Jayanti and gives students a long weekend since it falls on a Friday. The holiday extends as most schools will also remain shut the following Saturday.

Official Public Holiday Announced

Both Punjab and Haryana governments have declared May 10 a public holiday. This will affect schools, colleges, government offices, and businesses across the states. Cities like Faridabad, Dayalbagh, and Gurugram will see all educational institutions closed.

The break will last three days because May 11 is the second Saturday of the month. This day is usually a non-working day for many educational institutions. This gives students three days off in a row, offering a break right as the summer heat intensifies.

Relief from the Heat

With temperatures around 40 degrees in North India, this long weekend comes at a perfect time. Many schools have already adjusted their schedules to manage the heat.

But the upcoming days off will let students stay indoors and cool off. There’s also talk of starting summer vacation early this year due to the heat, possibly affecting regions beyond Punjab and Haryana.
