“The continuous rains at some of the districts is causing inconvenience to students in reaching the schools. Due to this, a holiday for schools can be declared. Further, the DCs can declare holiday subject to the condition that schools can hold classes some other day to make up for the losses of academic activities,” the circular said. 
The district administration in Kolar and Chikkaballapura have already declared holidays for schools in their respective districts. “Due to continuous rains, kids and parents will find it tough to commute to schools.
