Back to school in May?

Do you miss school?

Education Minister Simone Kustec yesterday hinted that schools and kindergartens might be open as early as May 11th, but today she said it is more likely that they will open on 18th. The opening process will not happen for all at the same time.

Before schools open their doors again they need to put safeguards in place. These will protect both students and teachers from the new coronavirus.

Will we have to wear protective masks at school? We don’t know yet. Most likely the safeguards in schools will not be much different from those already in place in shops, offices and elsewhere where more people come into contact.

These are:

  • Strict rules for cleaning and disinfecting school premises.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly and properly: wash them for one minute and then rinse them with warm water.
  • Proper coughing: cough in a handkerchief, which is then discarded, or in the elbow.
  • Do not touch eyes with hands to avoid any possible infection.
  • Keep an adequate distance from other people – at least a metre and a half! This means that you will no longer sit with your best friend at school, since everyone is likely to be sitting on their own seat and at an appropriate distance from their classmates front and back. Even during breaks and in the school cafeteria, socialising will be strictly limited.

Points to Consider

  1. Are you looking forward to going back to school?
  2. Do you know how to measure the time necessary for proper handwashing? 
  3. Is it a good idea to use masks in school?
