The Lagos state government has announced that government-owned schools will maintain the shift-system introduced last year when they reopened for the first term of the year.
The government made this announcement as schools in Lagos state resume amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
It was gathered that shift system is to avoid large gatherings and for the enforcement of social and physical distancing as part of the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
With this system, students in SS1 and JS3 classes will go to school on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, while those in SSS 2 and JSS 2 will go on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Also, at the primary school level, the pupils were divided into two categories with the first set to go to school on Mondays and Wednesdays and for about three hours on Friday morning.
