The Ministry of Education announced on Tuesday that schools will be opening in phases from June 2.
But privately conducted centre-based classes as well as learning programmes run by self-help groups will not resume face-to-face lessons yet.
Many tuition operators have switched to online classes in the meantime.
MOE centre-based lessons will resume for graduating cohorts from June 2, with additional safe management measures in place. These are lessons for students sitting language, art and music examinations.
The MOE also said that the National School Games competitions will be cancelled this year as there is not enough time to complete the season within the school calendar. In addition, students would not be adequately prepared for the competitions due to lack of training.
