Lagos has reiterated all public and private schools in the state will resume on Monday, January 18, 2021, for the second term 2020/2021 academic session.

Kayode Abayomi, the head, public affairs, Ministry of Education, confirmed this in a statement on Friday, January 15, 2021, titled: ‘Lagos affirms schools’ resumption date of Monday, 18th January 2021′

It said the commissioner for education, Folasade Adefisayo, maintained “the resumption is in line with the Federal Government’s resolution after reaching a consensus with relevant stakeholders.”

Adefisayo also urged students and members of staff to “stay safe and adhere strictly to COVID-19 guidelines”, adding that “schools must provide soap, wash hand basin, alcoholic hand sanitisers, thermometers, and other essential items in public and private schools across the State”.

She stressed washing of hands, wearing of face masks, and maintenance of social distancing must be adhered to in order to avoid further spread of the virus.

“All schools must ensure strict compliance with subsisting COVID-19 requirements for school’s resumption. Administrators of both public and private schools are expected to ensure full compliance with the guidelines for school’s re-opening in their respective schools as the State’s Office of Education Quality Assurance Team will be on the ground to monitor situations in all schools across the State,” she added.
