After two weeks of telematics training, the more than a thousand students in the municipality of Lorquí have returned to the classrooms this morning to resume their face-to-face training.
In an effective way, 50% of these students have done it in primary schools and on Tuesday the other 50% will do so, and it is Wednesday when the classes are in full.
During these first two days, schoolchildren are expected to become familiar with the new safety rules and protocols to follow to avoid COVID infections within the 'cabbages'. The City Council of Lorquí requested two weeks ago the delay of this face-to-face start given the high incidence of COVID registered in the municipality, however, the latest figures record a reduction in the number of positives by half, which encourages to begin a return to progressive normality, as highlighted by the mayor, Joaquín Hernández, this morning as he witnessed the good behavior of students and parents at the entrance to schools.
Likewise, the first mayor has shared his impressions with the management of the two primary education centers, who have expressed their satisfaction at finally receiving the children. Since last July, the City Council and educational centers have been working to guarantee a safe return to school.
Thus, from the consistory all the demands required by the schools have been addressed, allocating numerous material and personal resources.
Screens, disinfection stations have been installed in each entrance, gels, paper and wastebaskets in all classrooms, masks and thermometers, among other materials.
Likewise, cleaning has been reinforced with two cleaners during school hours and with custodians, both trained in COVID prevention.
For safe access, a mobility and access plan to the centers has also been implemented in collaboration with the Local Police and Civil Protection. Hernández has asked everyone to be prudent and responsible and to be rigorous with safety and hygiene measures to avoid complicated situations in the municipality.
