State Government Reopens Schools For Final Year Students | CABLE REPORTERS

Oyo state government through the Oyo State COVID-19 Task Force, on Monday, announced the resumption of classes for Primary Six pupils as well as Junior Secondary School III and Senior Secondary School III students from June 29.

Gov. Seyi Makinde who is the Chairman of the task force also announced the relaxation of the curfew imposed on the state, following the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

“The schools are to observe the COVID-19 protocols as released by the taskforce; schools are to provide handwashing points, with the support of Parent/Teachers’ Associations (PTA), while all students are to compulsorily wear face masks.

Students in critical classes are to resume at the end of June to ensure that they are well-prepared for the public examinations ahead of them.

“This resumption of critical classes at the end of June will be two clear weeks ahead of the state’s drop-dead date of July 15.

“By that date, it will be decided whether other categories of students will return to the class,” governor Makinde said.

He, however, said that the resumption order did not affect the tertiary institutions in the state, for now, adding that the task force would review their case and determine their state of readiness.
