As reported, the winter vacation in Kyiv schools lasted from December 26 to January 27. At that time, the schools were heated in the minimum maintenance mode of the heating system. In general, the school year will last in the capital’s schools until July 1 – according to the law.
In Kyiv, in conditions of blackout, offline education in schools will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The KMDA emphasized that this will maximally exclude the dependence of educational institutions on fan and emergency power outages.
