According to information obtained by RTL, students of the graduating classes could be the first to return to their schools on 4 May.

Over the past weeks, Minister of Education Claude Meisch has repeatedly stressed that the final exams will take place as planned in schools, starting on 25 May.

One possible scenario the Ministry of Education is allegedly considering, is to open up secondary schools for all other classes one week later on 11 May. Meanwhile, primary schools would only open two weeks later on 25 May.

However, not all students would return to their schools at the same time. In order to respect social distancing rules, classes would be split into two groups. One half of students would return the first week and then the other half the following week.

The strategy is expected to be presented by Claude Meisch during a press conference on Thursday.
