Amritsar, May 23

The district education department has issued notices to five private schools in the district for not complying with the government order to close schools during summer vacations due to extreme heat. It was learnt that the five private schools continued holding classes despite the state government ordering closure of schools in the state from May 21 due to extreme heat.

Superintendent (Secondary Education) Rajesh Sharma said notices have been issued to the private schools to appear before the superintendent to be questioned as to why they have not complied with the government orders.

“We have issued show-cause notices to the principals of these schools, seeking immediate explanation and warning that severe action will be taken if they violate the closure order. As per the guidelines, an investigation was conducted into the schools which did not comply with the order for immediate closure from May 21 to June 30. Some schools were forced to close with immediate effect while notices have been issued to others who continued classes,” he said.

The state government has ordered the closure of all schools — government, semi-government, private, aided and unaided — from May 21 to June 30 due to the extreme heat. Sharma stressed the need to prioritise the health of children as temperatures rise. He warned that health advisories have already been issued and strict action would be taken against schools that do not comply with the advisories.
