Schools across the country were closed shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic hit the country in March 2020. Educational institutions have been operating via distance learning, and until recently, there was no timeline for their re-opening. With the COVID-19 vaccine rolling out in the country as of Monday, March 1st, and with teachers among the first recipients, Prime Minister Honourable John Briceño anticipates schools’ re-opening by May or June of this year.

The prime minister shared this plan to re-open schools during a press conference on Monday that saw three healthcare workers receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. Briceño said that with the arrival of thousands of vaccines through the COVAX facility later this month, teachers will be among the first to receive the injection. If everything goes as scheduled, teachers’ vaccination should be complete by April in time for schools to possibly re-open by May or June. Prime Minister Briceño noted that those teachers who refuse to take the vaccine will still need to report to carry out their duties. A few teachers on Ambergris Caye shared that they will take the vaccine for the safety of the students and themselves.

Are Schools Reopening for Face-to-Face Learning Soon?

Are schools reopening for face-to-face learning soon? The Ministry of Education formed the COVID-19 Education Task Force to plan for that safe reopening, aiming for August/September 2021.  But there has been talk of a pilot programme at the end of April or early May, after teachers have been vaccinated. But will this happen? Consultations have been ongoing with various stakeholders, but a start date is still unknown at this time.

Senator Elena Smith, National President, B.N.T.U.

“I am not sure where we are with that, you know. There are proposals being put out there, different dates depending on the readiness of the schools. But from our end, I cannot tell you that that is what’s going to happen.”

Duane Moody

“You guys haven’t been consulted?”

Senator Elena Smith

“The task force has been putting together some work. It has not made its recommendation as yet so we when that recommendation is made and then we will see where we go from there.”
