Kindergarten, primary and Junior Highs school (JHS) pupils in both private and government schools will resume school on 15 January 2021 President Nana Akufo-Addo has announced.

This comes after schools were closed down last year March as a result of the covid-19 pandemic.

Nana Akufo-Addo in his 21st Covid-19 address to the nation telecast on Sunday, 3 January 2021 noted that measures have been put in place to make the schools save for pupils.

Nana Akufo-Addo noted that: “From 15 January our children in kindergarten, primary and Junior High in both private and public schools will be back in school.”

Meanwhile, “All SHS 1 students will start classes from 10 March with all students embarking on single track academic calendar.”

Their seniors in SHS 2 and SHS 3 will, however, returned to school from 18 January.

Nana Akufo-Addo stated that SHS 3 students of all schools like SHS 1 students will no longer run the double-track system due to the expansion of infrastructure in various Senior High Schools over the last three years.

However, the double-track system will still be applicable to SHS 2 students in schools that are employing it.

Students in universities and other institutions are to be in school from Saturday 9 January.  

The President said all schools will be fumigated before reopening and PPE made available.

There will also be no sporting activities.
