President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his 21st COVID-19 address to the nation on Sunday, January 3, 2021, noted that measures have been put in place to make the schools safe for pupils.
He noted that: "From 15 January our children in kindergarten, primary and Junior High in both private and public schools will be back in school."
"All SHS 1 students will start classes from 10th March, with all students embarking on a single-track academic calendar.
"Their seniors in SHS 2 and SHS 3 will, however, return to school from 18th January. I must stress that SHS 3 students in all schools, like SHS 1 students, will no longer run the double-track system."
