News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – The Department of Education is advising parents that this week Friday, April 23rd, 2021, all schools will be closed and will resume with remote learning on Monday, April 26th, 2021.
While the Department is mindful of the disruption that the Coronavirus Pandemic has had on the school year, and on learning for children, it was hoped that this Friday could be used to make up previously lost days. The Bermuda Union of Teachers respectfully declined our request. As a result, Friday’s school holiday will go ahead as scheduled.
The Department has received concerns from parents about the schools being closed on Friday following an extended Easter break. These concerns are not lost on us and the Department will continue to work with the Bermuda Union of Teachers to see how any of the lost learning days can be regained before the end of the school term.
