In preparation for life after coronavirus, the Lagos state Ministry of Education has approved resumption dates for the 2020 to 2021 school session.
In the time table, both public and private schools will resume First Term academic activities on Monday, September 21, 2020.
The term is expected to run until December 18, 2020, while the second term will begin January 4, 2021 and run until April 16, 2021.
According to Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, the director, the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA) public and private schools in the state are expected to adhere strictly to the harmonised school calendar.
“It is not enough to reopen but to keep staying opened since some schools all over the world had to shut down after reopening due to a spike in the pandemic.
“All schools must make efforts to comply with these requirements, not just for the improvement of the overall school operations but for safe reopening for academic activities,” she said.
Going further, she also advised schools to have flexible teaching and learning plans.
She added that schools must strive to avoid any COVID-19 infection in their school.
She further advised that teachers, students and visitors must wear a face mask at all time.
Meanwhile, schools are asked to take the school self-risk assessment test to obtain reopening clearance for academic activities on the OEQA website: www.oeqalagos.com.
