Several Districts in KP Announce School and College Closures
Several districts in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have announced the closure of all educational institutions due to flooding caused by record monsoon rains.
Dera Ismail (DI) Khan, Tank, Chitral, Swat, and Dir have been advised to maintain the closure of all public and private schools and colleges in their respective districts for several days. As per details, all educational institutions in Chitral will remain closed for 10 days, for 3 days in Tank and 2 days each in DI Khan, Swat, and Dir.
This year's torrential monsoon rains and subsequent floods have devastated KP, killing hundreds of people and damaging infrastructure worth billions of rupees.
Likewise, the Sindh government has extended the closure of all educational institutions in the province due to flooding and heavy monsoon rains forecast. According to the official announcement of the Ministry of Education, all colleges, public and private in the province will be closed for two days August 26 and 27 due to emergency monsoon rains. Educational institutions will reopen on August 29. Earlier this week, the provincial Ministry of Education announced the closure of all educational institutions in the province for two days due to expected heavy rains in Sindh.
According to the previous notice, all public and private educational institutions remain closed for two days August 24 and 25. Schools and colleges will reopen today. However, current difficult conditions force the provincial government to extend the closure of educational institutions.
