Ondo State Government has directed the re-opening of schools for all classes in public and private schools across the state beginning from Monday, November 2, 2020.
The directive was contained in a statement signed by the Commissioner for Education, Mr Femi Agagu, on Thursday.
Agagu said the directive became necessary following the peace that has returned to the state after the #EndSARS protest.
Recall that the state governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, had last week directed the closure of all schools in the state following the violence that erupted during the #EndSARS protests in the state.
Schools in the state had only resumed for 24 hours before the nationwide protest that necessitated the closure of schools again, to ensure the safety of students and teachers.
Agagu said: “Mr Governor has directed that all schools should resume on Monday, 2nd November, 2020 now that the state has become peaceful.
“Parents and the public are to note this directive and all schools are to comply.”
