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