The School Education Department (SED) and Higher Education Department (HED) in Punjab have extended the winter vacation for all public and private schools in the province. 

According to the revised schedule, all schools and colleges, both public and private, are mandated to reopen on Wednesday, January 10, 2024. The resumption of regular classes will mark the beginning of a full and normal school week for all students. While the vacation extension is a relief for students, it is essential to note that certain COVID-19 safety measures will persist. The SED notification emphasizes that the restrictions regarding the wearing of face masks within school premises shall remain intact. This precautionary measure aims to ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff.
