According to the PM news, the Lagos State commissioner for education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo, made the announcement via a press statement.
Recall that on Monday, October 19, the government directed that all schools across the state be closed after hoodlums hijacked the #ENDSARS protest.
The commissioner, in her statement, disclosed that the year has been unprecedented with recent happenings as schools had to be closed frequently.
The commissioner expressed that there will be no more disruptions in the academic calendar. However, the state government will always regard the safety of pupils/students, parents, and all staff as a matter of priority, she disclosed.
Mrs Adefisayo recommended that when schools resume on Monday, teaching and learning should continue unhindered till the end of the term. She also advised pupils/students to take their studies more seriously to recover what they missed when schools were closed.
