According to the Ministry of Education, the spring break for the students will be a bit early this year, which was supposed to be from March 29 until April 12.

“Distance learning initiative will be launched in the last two weeks of the vacation, thus ensuring the continuity of the educational process at home, without hampering in the number of school days,” the Ministry said in a statement.

In the four-week period, all schools’ facilities will be disinfected and cleaned-up.
