Mohali: In view of the prevailing smog and bad weather
conditions in the area, Mohali District Magistrate-cum-Deputy
Commissioner Gurpreet Kaur Sapra today ordered a change in the timings
of all government and private schools from tomorrow till November 18.
Under the order, all schools will open at 10 am and close at 3 pm. Sapra
said the order had been issued to ensure the safety of schoolchildren
and the staff.
Adding on, she said that both district education officers (primary and
secondary) had been ordered to ensure compliance of the change in the
timings by every school. “Any violation in this regard will be dealt
with sternly as it is matter of the safety of children,” said Sapra.
recent orders of the Punjab DPI regarding closure of schools for three
days last week were flouted by several private schools in Mohali.
