Lagos Schools

By Modupe Gbadeyanka

Public and private schools in Lagos State can begin full resumption from Monday, October 19, 2020, the Commissioner for Education has announced.

Mrs Adefisayo, while speaking on Monday (today), explained that the decision to allow the full reopening of schools in the state was taken after careful deliberations and consultations with relevant stakeholders, including safety professionals and nursery school providers.

According to her the physical resumption for the year 2020/2021 academic session will now include pupils in pre-primary institutions such as daycare, kindergarten and nursery schools.

However, she advised all public and private schools to put safety first by adhering to the COVID-19 safety protocols and hygiene guidelines prescribed by the state government, pointing out that the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA) will continue to monitor and evaluate schools’ preparedness.

“The necessary resumption protocols must be adhered to and cleared satisfactory by the OEQA,” the Commissioner declared.

While welcoming and wishing the students a successful and fruitful academic session, Mrs Adefisayo enjoined school owners and managers of all private schools to ensure that clearance is obtained from the Office of Education Quality Assurance before physical resumption.
