The Lagos State Government has scheduled the phases in which schools are to reopen. This includes both public and private schools. According to the State Government, kindergarten and nursery Schools will not reopen. This is because of the following
– It’s Impossible to maintain social distancing among Nursery and kindergarten pupils
– They are vulnerable to COVID-19
– It is so risky to expose them to the deadly virus
Private Primary and Secondary Schools to Resume on 21st September 2020 while in public schools, since the population are much, Only JSS3 and SS2 are to Resume on the 21st SEPTEMBER,2020.
It’s indeed highly commendable to Lagos State Government for the bold step taken in the Resumption of schools. In my opinion, the step taken and the phases stipulated is ok and just fine. At least students in Lagos State now have hope of Resumption. Just hoping other state will follow suit and take the necessary measures so that students can return to school.
