But, in a move that could impact thousands of students, some are set to be shuttered again in the coming weeks.
The schools are currently on lockdown due to a virus outbreak.
As reported by The Straits Times, Singapore is planning to shut down more than 5,000 schools across the country this year, according to reports from the Ministry of Education.
The state of Singapore will also shut down about 5,200 other schools this year in an effort to control the spread of the coronavirus.
The closures will affect some 1.5 million students.
Singapore’s schools were shut down due to the coronabis outbreak in December, but many of the schools were reopened earlier this year.
Some schools have reopened in a limited capacity, with only a small number of students allowed to stay for their final exams.

Singapore has seen an increase in cases of the flu and the coronovirus over the past month.
Singaporeans are increasingly worried that the spread and spread of these viruses could have devastating consequences for their country.
