The Odisha government has taken proactive measures to ensure the well-being of its citizens, particularly the students. In response to the extreme weather conditions, the government has announced an early onset of summer vacation, from April 25th. This decision applies to all government and private schools across the state. The announcement was made through a press release from the Information and Public Relations (I & PR) department, published on Twitter. With temperatures rising, this move aims to safeguard the health and safety of students and educators alike.

Furthermore, in response to the intensifying heatwave conditions, the Odisha government has introduced a temporary schedule adjustment for students, with morning classes scheduled from April 22nd to April 25th, running from 6:30 AM to 10:30 AM. The decision to declare an early summer vacation is based on a comprehensive report issued by the India Meteorological Department (IMD), which has issued an orange alert for heatwave conditions in Odisha and West Bengal. Across various regions of Odisha, the impact of the heatwave is noticeable, while temperatures soaring to 44 to 45 degrees Celsius in Nuapada, Keonjhar, Mayurbhanj, Boudh, and Sundargarh districts.

Manorama Mohanty, the director of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in Bhubaneswar, has highlighted the pervasive nature of the ongoing heatwave gripping the region. According to Mohanty, the current heatwave conditions are affecting all segments of the population, with no respite expected for the next 2 to 3 days.
