All schools in Bengaluru will remain closed on Friday as Bengaluru urban deputy commissioner declared a one-day holiday owing to the rain. The department of public instruction of Karnataka has written to all district commissioners to decide on whether to close schools for class 1 to class 10, if necessary, in view of the incessant rainfall.

Further, the DCs can declare holiday subject to the condition that schools can hold classes some other day to make up for the losses of academic activities," the circular said.
