The Ogun State Government announced that for the first term of 2020/2021 session in the state, schools would be reopened on Monday, September 21.

However, while colleges and tertiary institutions were to operate under the regular full hours, the government made adjustments to the resumption and closing hours for primary and secondary schools.

The government made this known on Monday via a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the State Governor, Kunle Somorin.

The statement said early child care development and education classes from three to five years of age would not be resuming in public schools until the next phase of school reopening.

"This second phase of the reopening of schools is extended to all classes in primary and secondary schools, technical and vocational colleges, and tertiary institutions", the statement said.

The statement added that the same applies to secondary schools where JSS one to JSS three would go to school between 8 am to 11 am and SSS one to SSS three would resume classes from 12 pm to 3 pm.

On the part of tertiary institutions, it said, "Tertiary institutions are allowed to commence reopening from 21 September 2020 as may be determined by their respective management."
