Delhi schools bordering Yamuna to remain closed till July 18

Sschool authorities have been instructed to arrange online classes for the meantime, to ensure that students' academic growth does not suffer.

The Delhi schools bordering the Yamuna river have been ordered to stay closed for all pourposes, due to a flood like situation in the area. The Directorate of Education (DoE) announced on Sunday that all private and government schools should dismiss offline classes.

This decision has been taken as the schools are being used as flood relief camps in the city.

“As flood relief camps are likely to continue to run in schools in the areas bordering the river Yamuna, all schools (government and private) in the affected Districts of DoE — East, North East, North West-A, North, Central and South East — shall remain closed for students on July 17 and 18,” the DoE said in a circular.
