The Ministry of National Education, Vocational Training, Higher Education and Scientific Research has decided to postpone the start of the school year to September 10, 2021.

According to a press release published following the Council of Government held this Monday in Rabat, the school year has been postponed from September 3rd to September 10th, 2021.

The same source stresses that this return to school is part of a pandemic context, with a continuing health crisis and difficulty in predicting a health situation, in particular for the following considerations:

– An ascending curve of recently recorded cases

– The appearance and spread of new variants of Covid-19, (more contagious, affecting all age categories)

– Disparity in the epidemiological situation between the provinces and regions of the Kingdom

The decision to postpone the start of the school year concerns both public and private educational establishments. Regarding foreign missions, no decision has been taken as of yet.
