This is to notify you that the Governor of Lagos State, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu has announced the reopening of schools in phases because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
However, it is pertinent to note that only Senior Secondary School (SSS3) and Tech College 3 final year students are to resume on August 3rd while Junior Secondary School final year (JSS3) students are to wait for assessment of the situation for a week before they can be considered for resumption.
It should be noted that the above information applies to only Day Schools both public and private respectively. Schools with boarding facilities and other schools are to remain shut until further notice but must continue with their online teaching and learning.
Further clarification on code of conduct for the school resumption will be communicated in the coming week by the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA) and guidelines on monitoring school compliance.
Similarly, I wish to advise all schools to be weary of unconfirmed information about the commencement date of this year’s West African Senior School Certificate Examinations (WASSCE 2020) which have been flying around carelessly. For the avoidance of doubts, there is yet no information on the purported revised time table of the examination on the official website of the examination body. Please be advised to authenticate any information in this regard on www.waecnigeria.org for clarification.
For: Hon. Commissioner for Education.
