The Lagos State Ministry of Education has approved the school calendar for the 2020/2021 session and we have got the details as released in a statement moments ago by the Head of Public Affairs at the Office of Education Quality Assurance (OEQA), Olaniran Emmanuel.

Public and private schools below the tertiary level will resume the First Term academic activities on Monday, 21st September 2020 while the term runs through Friday 18th December 2020.

The Second Term starts on Monday 4th January 2020 and runs through Friday 6th April 2021 while students will resume for Third Term on Tuesday 4th May 2021, and close on Friday 6th August 2021.

Director-General, OEQA, Abiola Seriki-Ayeni, also told school teachers, proprietors, and school leaders to always have a standard health and safety plan which will in turn help protect students, teachers, and workers.

She said it is not enough to reopen but to keep staying open since some schools all over the world had to shut down after reopening due to a spike in the pandemic.

In a statement, it was noted that all schools must try to make efforts in order to comply with these requirements, not just for school operations to be improved, but for the safe reopening for academic activities to support the Lagos State Government quest for a full return.
She also advised schools to have a flexible teaching and learning plan where students and teachers who feel sick can teach or learn from home through any available online platform.

Teachers, students, and visitors are expected to wear a face mask at all times, observe physical distancing, wash hands at intervals, and maintain a high standard of personal hygiene.

Lagos State government also stressed the need for schools to have a room strictly for isolation/holding bay in order to care for medical emergencies in case students come up with symptoms usually associated with Covid-19 such as headache, difficulty in breathing, fever, etc.
