Osun has announced schools in the state will reopen on September 21.
But protocols have to first be put in place following guidelines set by the federal education ministry.
The schools will reopen in phases for an abridged third term to round out the 2019/2020 academic year.
Osun’s information and civic orientation commissioner Funke Egbemode said in a statement, “Having conducted an assessment of schools within the State to ascertain the level of preparations for reopening, the government has scheduled schools to resume from the COVID-19 break on September 21st for an abridged third term of the 2019/2020 academic session, which is expected to end on October 30, 2020.
“To make up for lost grounds caused by the COVID-19 induced lockdown, a new academic session (2020/2021 session) is scheduled to commence on November 9, 2020.
“Because of the Yuletide, schools will be expected to take a brief recess from December 24, 2020, to resume on January 4, 2021, for the concluding part of the first term of the new session which is scheduled to end January 22, 2021.
“The resumption date for the second term is set for February 1, and scheduled to end April 9.
“The third term of that session commences on April 26, and runs till July 23.”
