The gov­ern­ments of Kaduna and Plateau states have an­nounced that schools across the two states will be re­opened on Oc­to­ber 19 and 30 re­spec­tively.

In Kaduna, the Com­mis­sioner of Ed­u­ca­tion, Dr Shehu Us­man Muham­mad Makarfi, who an­nounced this on Thurs­day, said the di­rec­tive to re­open schools across the state on Oc­to­ber 19 was for pri­vate and pub­lic schools.

He cau­tioned that all the schools’ man­age­ments must en­sure that COVID-19 pro­to­cols are ob­served by the stu­dents, adding that morn­ing and af­ter­noon classes will be con­ducted to main­tain so­cial dis­tanc­ing.

He also ex­plained that all nec­es­sary mea­sures have been put in place to en­sure smooth learn­ing and safety of stu­dents es­pe­cially at this pe­riod of COVID-19.

“The 18th of Oc­to­ber is for the SS2 board­ing stu­dents to go back to school and 19th Oc­to­ber for the day stu­dents. All the SS2, JSS2 and Pri­mary 6 stu­dents will come back to school to sit for their var­i­ous ex­am­i­na­tions.

“SS2 stu­dents will write the exam that will move them to SS3, JSS2 stu­dents will write the exam that will move them to JSS3 while pri­mary 6 pupils will come and write the exit exam that will take them to JSS1,” he said.
