Winter vacations in schools in Himachal Pradesh’s state capital Shimla have been extended by two days after heavy snowfall, a district official said.

The vacations in all primary and senior secondary schools have been extended by two days, the  magistrate said.

In its order issued on Saturday, the magistrate said the schools in Shimla district would now reopen on February 13, instead of February 11.

The decision has been taken in the interest of safety of the students as several roads are still blocked after heavy snowfall on February 7, it said adding that the work of clearing the roads is going on.
