Public and private schools in Lagos State have been directed to resume on Monday, February 18, 2019 as against Tuesday, February 19, 2019 contained in the earlier reviewed calendar.
This followed the postponing of the presidential and National Assembly elections on Saturday, February 16, 2019 by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
As a result of the postponement of the polls, the Lagos State Government effected a change in the school calendar.
Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Mrs Idiat Oluranti Adebule, who supervises the Ministry of Education in the state, announced the new change in the calendar on Saturday.
She informed all the Lagos State School stakeholders and the general public that all schools in Lagos state are expected to close on Friday, February 22 and resume on Monday, February 25.
Mrs Adebule said the second leg of the break will be on Friday, March 8, 2019, with the resumption fixed for Monday, March 11, 2019.
“All public and private schools, school leaders and school associations are implored to take note and adhere strictly to the new School Calendar.
“This measure is to ensure that the academic development and future of the pupils and students of the state are not compromised by the alteration of the election time table,” the Deputy Governor said.
