Lagos state government has approved the re-opening of schools for all classes in public and private schools across the State beginning from Monday, 2nd of November, 2020.
The Honourable Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo stated that it 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.
According to the government, boarding house students in public schools are to resume on Sunday, November 1.
“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 stated.
“We recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term,” she added.
The Commissioner, therefore, advised pupils/students to take their studies more serious in a bid to recover the lost period and thereby excel.
