Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has announced that the new date for the partial resumption of schools in the state for August 3, 2020.
Announcing the date at a media briefing on Friday, July 3, 2020, the governor said the resumption is for those in SSS 3.
According to the governor, the decision was taken after a meeting with stakeholders in the education sector.
He, however, clarified that though schools would be reopened for the transitional classes on August 3, students in Senior Secondary School three and Technical School three would resume first.
He added that pupils in primary schools and Junior Secondary School three students would resume school a week or two weeks after the SSS3 students’ resumption.
The governor asked school authorities in the transitional classes to ensure adequate preparation for the resumption of students ahead of August 3, 2020.
