The Lagos State government has announced the resumption of all remaining students in both the public and private primary and secondary schools in the state beginning from next Monday.
The physical resumption for the 2020/2021 academic session now captures pupils in pre-primary schools including daycare, kindergarten and nursery.
It would be recalled that all students in private schools from primary to secondary levels and those in junior secondary school class 3 and senior secondary school class 2 in public schools in the state have since resumed academic activities about a month ago.
The state’s Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, made the announcement in a statement made available by the head of public affairs unit of the ministry, Mr Kayode Abayomi, on Monday.
According to the commissioner, the full resumption decision was taken by the state government after careful deliberations and consultations with relevant stakeholders including safety professionals and nursery school providers in the state.
She however advised those concerned to put the safety of their pupils and workers and visitors first by adhering to the COVID-19 already given guidelines and protocols.
She said the Office of Education Quality Assurance would continue to monitor and evaluate the preparedness of schools for reopening
She asked private school owners and managers to get clearance from the quality assurance office before their physical resumption.
