The National Association of Proprietors of Private Schools (NAPSS) has said that its members are ready for school reopening and that as part of measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19, it has directed its members to open schools for about four hours daily.
Chief Yomi Otubela, The NAPSS National President, said, “Our association, as the registered umbrella body of private schools in Nigeria, has been interfacing with Federal Government representatives, including the Ministry of Education and other agencies, concerning how to combat the spread of COVID-19.
“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 9am and the Primary 6 classes can come by 10am. This is to ensure that we don’t get the entrances and the exits crowded.”
The president noted that schools had been instructed to have infrared thermometers, and also avoid teachers marking students’ books manually.
