This year, #COVID19 has disrupted our businesses and schools. For our students in SSS3 and TEC3, we have some important news. In line with the updated guidelines from the Presidential Task Force on #COVID19, they will resume on August 3 to prepare for mandatory public exams.
Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu announced this on Friday during a press briefing at state house, marina Lagos. Sanwo-Olu said final year students in Primary 6, Junior Secondary School 3 and Senior Secondary School 3 are to resume classes from Monday, August 3.
He however, directed school operators of public spaces and offices should deny entry to anyone without a mask.
This resumption will be strictly monitored and must follow established public health guidelines and protocols in the State. The permission to re-open only applies to day-schools. Boarding activities are excluded. Instructions for JSS3 will come soon as we continue to consult.
He stated that pupils in Primary Six will be graded by their already recorded Continuous Assessment (CA) to pass over to secondary schools. Our tertiary institutions are to continue their online academic activities which are at various advanced stages.
The Federal Government had last week approved what it called “safe reopening” of schools nationwide in the next phase of the gradual easing of lockdown ordered to curtail further spread of COVID-19.
