Primary schools in Watford and Three Rivers will remain closed after the Christmas holidays – they will be open for children of key workers and vulnerable pupils.
Secondary schools in England will have a staggered return, with those taking exams this year resuming in-person teaching on January 11 and other year groups on January 18.
Hertfordshire County Councillor Terry Douris, Cabinet Member for Education, has confirmed that the Heads of each school will be contacting the families of all pupils to provide information about their specific opening plans and provision of free school meals.
