Despite the extension of their day in school, the reopening date for the pupils still stands on Tuesday, January 10, 2023.
The letter by the Director of the Division of Schools and Instructions of GES, Patty Assan added however that “by this letter, Regional Directors are kindly requested to communicate this information to the Metro/Municipal/District Directors of Education to inform all Heads of Basic Schools to take note and act accordingly.”
