In response to the prevailing intense heatwave conditions in Odisha, the state government has announced summer vacations for school students starting from April 25. This decision applies to all schools, including government, government-aided, and private institutions.

To mitigate the effects of the rising temperatures, the government has also implemented morning classes from 6:30 am to 10:30 am in schools for three days, scheduled from April 22 to April 24.

Earlier measures included the closure of all schools in the state for three days from April 18 to 20 due to the severe heatwave situation, with temperatures exceeding 45 degrees Celsius in certain areas.

According to reports, several towns in Odisha, including Jharsuguda and Keonjhar, recorded temperatures as high as 43.6 degrees Celsius, prompting concerns about the health and well-being of residents. Other areas such as Hirakud, Rourkela, Sambalpur, Bhubaneswar, Chandbali, and Balasore also experienced temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius.

This decision by the Odisha government aims to ensure the safety and comfort of students during the sweltering summer months.
