He said the resumption date was approved by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, adding that the Board, in its usual practice, would monitor compliance across the state.
Adeniran urged parents to prepare all learners for resumption, adding that they are all expected back in school as academic activities start the same day.
While wishing students and teachers a happy resumption, the SUBEB boss appealed to head teachers and all stakeholders to ensure strict compliance with all COVID-19 safety protocols put in place by the state.
Adeniran also stated that welfare of staff will remain top priority for the management of the Board this year.
