LAHORE – The Punjab government has extended the revised school timings for winter season till January 31.
Earlier this month, the education authority had revised the school timings due to weather conditions amid severe cold.
Since then, classes at schools across Lahore commenced at 9:30 am and conclude at 2:30 pm. However, on Friday, the classes end at 12:30 PM.
The timings were changed for classes after schools were opened after winter vacation with caretaker Chief Minister Mohsin Naqvi stating that the vacations will not be extended.
When Will Regular Timings of Schools be Implemented?
In latest development, authorities said schools will resume regular timings from February 1, 2024, as it is expected that temperature would increase in coming days.
School Uniform Policy
In December 2023, the Punjab government has made temporary changes in school uniform policy due to winter weather, allowing students to wear sweaters or jackets of any color in addition to uniforms as many parents could not get blazers and uppers for their children.
The education department notified all schools that there should not be any restrictions on students, allowing them to wear casual sweaters and jackets.
The temporary changes in uniform policy have been made for the months of January and February. Earlier, school students were required to adhere to a specific dress code.
