The Lagos State Government (LASG) has approved the re-opening of schools for all classes in public and private schools across the state on Monday, Nov. 2.
The Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, who announced this in Ikeja, noted that the year 2020 had been fraught with many unprecedented developments.
She said that the happenings in the year had regrettably led to the frequent closure of schools, with attendant disruptions in the learning process.
“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 or students and parents as paramount.
“We recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term,” she said.
Adefisayo, therefore, advised the pupils and students to take their studies more seriously, in a bid to recover the lost period.
She also urged the schools to continue to maintain safety and observe good hygiene at all times as a safeguard against the spread of COVID-19.
