Some final year students of Suhum Senior High and Technical School (SUTESCO) in the Eastern Region were left stranded for reporting to school late.
The students, numbering over 70, were prevented from entering the school's premises for reporting after 5pm.
According to a Starr News report, the students who reportedly resided outside Suhum were asked to sleep outside the campus and return the next day at the right time.
Some of the students who were accompanied by their parents said they were denied entry into the school even though they reported before 5pm.
Speaking to the media about their frustrations, one student indicated that he arrived at the school before 5pm but was asked to go and trim his bushy hair and upon his return, was denied entry into the school.
Speaking on grounds of anonymity, one of the teachers revealed that the reason why students were denied entry onto the school was because of the absence of health staff to conduct mandatory checks upon them.
Meanwhile, the Accra Technical University – formerly known as Accra Poly – has recorded its first COVID-19 case, authorities announced to students on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.
The affected patient is a national service personnel at one of the academic departments, a circular to the university community said.
“The said person is currently in isolation at a medical facility and responding well to treatment. Six colleagues who came into contact with the confirmed Covid-19 patient, have been counseled, re-assured and their samples taken for laboratory testing."
