The National Association of Propreitors of Private Schools (NAPPS), has said that its members across the country are ready for the reopening of schools.
While disclosing this, NAPPS National President, Chief Yemi Otubela said that it was relating with its members nationwide to put all necessary safety protocols into place.
He also said that the NAPPS, as the registered umbrella body of private schools in Nigeria has been interfacing with Federal Government representatives, including the Ministry of Education and other related agencies, to address how to combat the further spread of COVID-19 in the various educational institutions.
“The fact that pupils are returning to school does not mean that we are going to spend the total hours as it used to be in the past. We are considering a little time of about three to four hours in school. This is to ensure that there is no room for children to go on break and play around the premises.
“And we have also discussed with our members that there should be staggered resumption . Staggered resumption means that if the JSS3 class comes to school by 8am, SSS3 can come by 9 am and the Primary 6 classes can come by 10am. This is to ensure that we don’t get the entrances and the exits crowded,” He said.
