As schools in Lagos state resume amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the state government has made it clear that government-owned schools will maintain the shift-system introduced last year when they reopened for the first term of the year.
The shift system is to be continued to observe safety protocols necessary to curb 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.
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.
The other set will go to school on Tuesdays and Thursdays and for three hours on Friday afternoon.
The 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.
