The Lagos State Government has directed all pupils/students in public and private schools to stay at home as a result of the tension generated by the ongoing anti- SARS protests.
The Commissioner for Education, Mrs Folasade Adefisayo gave the directive on Monday evening.
She said the safety of the pupils/students, parents and all staff working in schools is paramount at this critical period hence the decision to suspend academic activities in both primary and secondary schools in the state.
Adefisayo however advised parents to watch over their wards and not allow them to be used by those who might want to hijack the protests to perpetuate evil.
The Commissioner encouraged schools to utilize other means of distance teaching and learning i.e radio, television and online media as they have been doing during and post the recent COVID-19 lockdown.
According to the commissioner , a new date of resumption for all classes will be announced as soon as possible.
