A question on the lips on many Ugandans is when is the reopening of schools and now the Minister of Education Janet Kataha Museveni has today unveiled the new calendar for candidates as the Ministry preparing for the reopening of schools amidst surging COVID-19 cases in the country.

The process of reopening schools has come to considerations after several meetings discussing how possible standard operating procedures can be implemented in schools.

The draft calendar for the affected schools indicates a 13 week run for Term two slated to kick off on September 21.

Unlike in the past, this year’s December – January holiday will be cut short, therefore running for just 23 days, according to the draft.
