The president also ordered for close down of all Institutions allowing only candidates who were taking their national examination.

The president to allow movement in and out of Machakos,Nairobi,Kajiado,Kiambu and Nakuru to enable learners access their various schools.

This year school calendar had 4 terms in a year instead of 3 terms as a way of covering the lost time las year.

Learners reopen on May 10 and closes school on July 16 where they go for one week holiday and go back to school on July 26 for term one.

Another break for learners is from October 2 to October 10 before they open for second term which will end in December 23.
