The governor of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has ordered the re-opening of schools for all classes in public and private schools following the restoration of peace in the state.
Folasade Adefisayo, the Lagos state commissioner for Education, made this known in a statement on Thursday.
According to Adefisayo, all schools in the state are to resume from Monday, November 2, 2020, while boarders in public schools are to resume on Sunday, November 1.
She added that following the closures occasioned by COVID-19 and the ENDSARS protests, the government hopes that there would not be further disruption of the academic calendar.
“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, we recommend that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term,” said Adefisayo.
