In recent news, the government of The Lagos State has approved the re-opening of public and private schools in the states, and has set the new resumption date to Monday, November 2, 2020 while boarders in public schools are to resume Sunday, Novermber 1.
This was made known today by Honourable Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, who said “this has been an unprecedented year with the recent happenings that have regrettably led to frequent closure of schools with attendant learning disruptions faced by all children.”
“We pray and hope that there will be no more disruptions in the academic calendar. However, the State Government will always regard the safety of pupils/students, parents and all staff as a matter of priority.” She stressed.
“We recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term.” She added.
As schools reopen, it is important to note that COVID-19 is not yet eradicated in the country, and all guidelines should be followed as students resume.
Always make sure the younger generation are protected from harm at all times.
