Let us tell you that earlier the schools were to open on January 15 but now the holidays have been extended. Schools can conduct online classes for their students up to class VIII. Further, for classes 9 to 12 in all government, government aided and recognized private schools of UT Chandigarh, schools will not open for students before 9.30 AM till 20 January 2024.
