Winter vacations in schools in Multhan sub tehsil of Himachal Pradesh's Kangra district have been further extended by five days due to damaged roads after heavy snowfall last week, an official said Wednesday.
The schools which were to reopen on Wednesday will now start from February 18, he said.
The decision to again extend the school holidays was taken in the interest of safety of the students and staff as several roads had been damaged after heavy snowfall last week, Kumar added.
In his earlier order issued on February 10, he extended the winter vacation of Multhan schools by two days.
