The move is part of measures to protect the state from coronavirus pandemic.
Briefing journalists after the State Executive Council Meeting today, Commissioner for Education, Professor Dennis Ityavyar, said all schools in the state had been directed to conclude examinations on or before March 27 and proceed on holiday.
The Commissioner urged schools to ensure that physical contact is restricted before the end of the examinations.
He stated that the decision to close schools before the scheduled end of the current academic term had become necessary as part of measures to prevent an outbreak of the disease in the state.
