RE: GOVERNMENT DIRECTIVE ON CLOSURE OF SCHOOLS IN VIEW OF THE CORONAVIRUS DISEASE (COVID-19) GLOBAL PANDEMIC
Following the directive of the Lagos State Government that all Private and Public Schools be shut down with effect from Monday 23rd March, 2020 in a preventive measure to curtail the spread of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), we hereby formally notify you of the suspension of the ongoing Silver Term examination and the closure of the school with effect from the end of today, Friday 20th March, 2020 until further notice.
We wish to use this medium to advise all our dear parents to kindly step up all
pre-cautionary measures of ensuring that the children wash their hands with soap and water as often as possible and use hand sanitizer when water is not available and also to curtail avoidable movements outside the home.
Our teachers have been tasked to prepare homework packages between Monday 23rd to Wednesday 25th March, 2020 to help keep the children effectively occupied during this voluntary quarantine-holiday.
Parents are hereby advised to kindly come in to pick up the Homework Packages with effect from Wednesday 25th March, 2020 by 10a.m.
We shall communicate further developments including the resumption date as soon as we receive directives to that effect. Meanwhile, we pray that God in his mercy will continue to preserve and protect us and our dear families and loved ones at these trying and challenging times.
Thank you for your understanding.
