The Lagos State Government has approved the re-opening of schools for all classes in public and private schools across the state.
The schools can begin reopening from November, 2. Boarding house students in public schools are to resume on November 1.
Disclosing this today, education commissioner 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,” she said.
“The state government will always regard the safety of pupils/students, parents and all staff as a matter of priority.
“We recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term,” Adefisayo added.
The commissioner advised pupils/students to take their studies more seriously in a bid to recover the lost period.
Schools, after emerging from coronavirus lockdowns, were forced to shut down again after thugs began attacking protesters across Nigeria.
