For the first time in nearly 10 months, children returned to class after the Ministry of Education (MoE) and Ghana Education Service (GES) announced the plans to re-open schools. Across Ghana, Senior High School students in Classes 2 and 3 commenced on 15th January 2021, while the majority of school children – from Kindergarten One to Junior High School Three - resumed on Monday 18th of January. Some students (SHS1 and SHS2 Gold track) are operating on a slightly different calendar due to exam dates and are scheduled to resume on 10th March 2021.Since the president announced the re-opening of schools months ago,there has been a rise in the cases of Covid-19.And some parents are worried .some are even suggesting the schools should be closed.But the directer general of the Ghana Education Service Kwasi Opoku Amankwa said the schools will remain opened dispite the rise in cases recorded in schools.A study conducted by Child Rights International has revealed that a total of 2,180 children between the ages of 0 to 18 years contracted COVID-19 in Ghana, from March 11th to November 9th, 2020.

Till now there are 556 cases of Covid-19 in schools since reopening.
