The Lagos State Government on Friday announced that students in Senior Secondary School 3 and Tech III are to resume classes from Monday, August 3, 2020.
Announcing the date at a media briefing, Sanwo-Olu said the resumption is for those in SSS 3 and Tech III.
“The commencement date for this would be from Monday, August 3, 2020. SSS 3 and Tech III will start. But for JSS 3, we’ll wait for another one or two weeks and we’ll see how we’ve taken the first set of Tech 3 and SSS 3 before they now subsequently would open.
“This permitted opening would apply only to day schooling; no boarding activity of any sort is permitted at this time.
“School authorities are expected to spend this period, between now and August 3, to prepare themselves well and get the right directives from our ministry of education and the quality assurance office under the ministry of education.”
The governor added that those in tertiary institutions should continue in their online academic activities until a decision on physical resumption is taken.
“I know that some of them are also conversing with us on if some final year students would be allowed to have physical opening. That modality, we’re still working on it with them, but the online teaching that has started at the tertiary institutions will continue,” he said.
