Schools Reopen After Summer Vacation In Odisha
Bhubaneswar: All government and private schools in Odisha reopened on Tuesday after the summer vacation.

It may be mentioned here that the state government on March 9 had announced commencement of summer vacation beginning May 4.
However, it later revised the notification on April 24, announcing the summer vacation from April 25 till June 18 due to intense heatwave conditions.

Taking note of the unrelenting heatwave with the forecast by the India Meteorological Department (IMD) that the conditions will prevail till June 23, the government on June 19 further extended the summer vacation till June 25.
