The Lagos State Government has given the go-ahead for reopening of schools on Monday, November 2, 2020, while boarders in public schools are to resume on Sunday, November 1, 2020.
Mrs Folasade Adefisayo the commissioner in charge of education disclosed this on Thursday saying: “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.
The Commissioner, therefore, advised pupils/students to take their studies more seriously in a bid to recover the lost period and thereby excel.
