As a result, students in grades 10–12 will also be unable to attend class. As a result, a vacation from classes has been called for in Delhi. The new date for the start of classes in Delhi is November 20.
The winter break for Delhi’s public schools traditionally begins the final week of December or the first week of January, but this year, the administration of CM Arvind Kejriwal has opted to move the break up. Due to the smog in Delhi, all grades below 10th are being taught online right now.
The decision was made because of the smog.
The Delhi Government’s Education Directorate has announced a “Winter Break.” The Directorate of Education has announced that the weeks of November 9–18 will be designated as winter breaks for students. The administration has ordered the start of the winter break to be moved forward in light of the deteriorating air quality in the nation’s capital. Typically, these breaks occur during the deep freeze of December and January; however, considering the present air quality in Delhi, the previously scheduled winter break has been moved forward.
Earlier, a decision was made to shut elementary schools in Delhi until November 10. On Wednesday morning in Anand Vihar, Delhi, the air quality index (AQI) was 452, according to data from the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). RK Puram has a reading of 433; Okhla, 426; Punjabi Bagh, 460; Sri Aurobindo Marg, 382; Shadipur, 413; and ITO, 413.

On November 10, the Meteorological Department forecasts that there is a chance of light precipitation in Delhi. There is currently little prospect for a resolution to this situation. The Meteorological Department predicts that Delhi may see morning fog until November 13th. Vehicles are seen by experts as a key contributor to Delhi’s environmental problems. The odd-even scheme for automobiles will also be put into effect in Delhi beginning next week. In order to safeguard pupils from air pollution and to make sure that students are not harmed by the odd-even dilemma, experts agree that the decision to shut schools is appropriate. Due to the cars being arranged in an odd-even pattern, all schools will be closed from November 9th through the 18th. Given that Sunday falls on November 19, no classes will be held that day.
The earlier decision to maintain the school’s closure until November 10th stands.
On November 5, the administration announced that elementary and secondary schools would remain closed until November 10. However, no instruction had been sent to secondary schools.

Normally, Delhi’s schools have a vacation between December and January, but the pollution has forced the administration to move the breakup.
