The Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has said that schools in the state will reopen for students in transitional classes.
He made this known in a televised press briefing on Friday stating that students in Senior Secondary School three and Technical School three would first resume on August 3.
Sanwo-Olu said that pupils in primary schools and Junior Secondary School three students would resume a week or two weeks after the SSS3 students’ resumption.
The governor asked school authorities in the transitional classes to ensure adequate preparation for resumption ahead of August 3.
“Tertiary institutions will remain closed. We continue to support online teaching during this period. However, students in the transitional classes who have mandatory public examinations ahead of them will be permitted to resume for revision classes and examinations.
“All educational establishments are to follow the guidelines for the reopening. We just finished a very serious stakeholders meeting in the educational sector for the reopening.
“SSS3 and Tech three students are to start; for JSS3, and primary six they will wait for about a week or two before resumption. This permitted opening will be for only day schooling. No boarding activities are permitted during this time.”Follow us on social media
