After a break of one and a half months for the summer vacation, primary and high schools across the state of Karnataka are set to reopen on Wednesday, May 29. A special touch awaits the returning students as teachers gear up to welcome them with sweets on May 31 during the school opening ceremony.

The education department has made arrangements to provide two sets of uniforms and textbooks to all attending children. To ensure timely distribution, uniforms have been dispatched to the taluk level in full, while textbooks are already supplied at a rate of 75 to 80 per cent. The remaining textbooks are slated for delivery within the next two days. Officials emphasize that Block Education Officers (BEOs) and Deputy Directors of Public Instruction (DDPIs) are tasked with ensuring the swift delivery of these materials to schools for distribution on the commencement day itself.
