The Lagos State Government on Monday announced that all public and private schools below tertiary level in the State should be reopened for the second term 2020/2021 academic session from Monday, January 18, 2021.

The State Commissioner for Education, Mrs. Folasade Adefisayo who disclosed this on Monday said that the resumption is in line with the Federal Government’s directive coupled with the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu had in December asked all schools including public and private to shut down till further notice, following the second wave of COVID-19 in the State.

Having announced a resumption date for commencement of second term, Mrs. Adefisayo enjoined all schools to make efforts to comply with all the outlined COVID-19 requirements for the improvement of overall school operations as well as safe reopening of academic activities.

She also advised schools to have flexible plans where students and teachers who feel sick can teach or learn from home via available online platforms, adding that schools should also strive to avoid any COVID-19 infection among all students and staff.

The Commissioner further appealed to teachers, students and visitors to schools to wear facemasks at all times, observe physical distancing, embrace regular hand washing with soap under running water and maintain a high standard of personal hygiene within the school premises.
