Sequel to the activities of students and a near breakdown of law and order in Uyo High School, it became necessary  for the Management of the State Secondary Education Board led by the Chairman Rt. Hon. Dr. Ekaette Ebong Okon to close down the school to enable all contending issues be resolved before the return of Students and staff to the School Compound. 
All staff and students should note that Government has the interest of all at heart and has spent and is still spending enormously to ensure conducive  environment and resources for teaching and learning in the school. 
Government is also very committed to the safety of lives and property as one of the cardinal commitments of governance and would not want to be derailed by acts of hooliganism , Cultism and wanton destruction by any group of students, staff or community members to both government property or private individuals within the vicinity.
To stem down inordinate behaviour by students, the following will be strictly observed;
1) All staff and students of JSS 3 will resume school on Tuesday the 29th of June 2021 for the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE)
JSS 1& 2 will resume on 5th July, 2021
Senior Secondary 1 and  2  resumes on  Monday 12th July 2021.
To this end, the Principal, Vice-Principals, Staff , Students and Parents are to take note and ensure strict compliance.
Any student who is caught in acts to contravene this order will be expelled from the school and all schools in Akwa Ibom State and handed over to the law enforcement officers for further actions. 
The  government of the day under the able leadership of the Executive Governor, His Excellency, Mr. Udom G. Emmanuel is committed to breeding world class scholars with good morals. 
Let us all join hands to accomplish this. It is for the good of the students, Parents, our State and the Nation at large. 
Rt. Hon. Ekaette Ebong Okon (PhD).
Executive Chairman – SSEB
