The education administrators of Tamil Nadu will look after situation as schools of the area remain closed due to fortnight-long heavy rains.
According to a report in Press Trust of India (PTI), a top school management representative said, "Usually, whenever normal working days are lost, they are made up by having schools, but not for the primary classes so far. However, with the schools remaining closed for an unprecedented duration of nearly a fortnight, primary section may also opt to work on Saturdays when schools resume."
"However, it is the half-yearly vacations that are likely to take a hit as most schools have already informed parents to not schedule any programmes during that time. While the situation doesn't look any rosy next week too, it is unlikely that there could be the ten-day usual half-yearly vacation for the students. Most of the managements have informed parents that the schools might be closed down only for a few days for Christmas," he added.
Another representative said, "Other measures to make up for lost time in schools include extending the duration of the working hours, especially, to benefit students of Classes 10 and 12 scheduled to appear for board exams.
