The principals, through the national trade association, ask the government to say a clear word on the return to school of students after periods of absence. A few days after the opening of schools, in most of the Italian regions on September 14, the confusion also concerns this aspect.

The president of the National Association of Deans, Antonello Giannelli, says: “We do not intervene in health matters but I ask for clarity: readmission to school, today, unlike in the past, takes place without medical certificates. absent and the school does not know why, he could also have the virus but if no doctor visited him we would be faced with a suboptimal readmission. Then we should reintroduce a certification requirement upon return, at least over three days of illness “.

This morning the Minister of Education Lucia Azzolina, from her Biella where she was visiting an institute including Chiavazza, had reassured about the restart: “Everything is under control. We are prepared to face the problems one by one. If there are children positive will intervene the department of territorial prevention. I am convinced that the school is the safest place of all at the moment. The school will start on the 14th, an extraordinary job has been done. We have prepared ourselves by arranging spaces and carrying out light construction work. A at the end of June we gave precise guidelines “.

Coronavirus: 13 thousand cases in school according to serological tests.

According to the minister. “If there are uncertainties, it is more due to the distorted information that is given than to the rules that we have given and which are precise. I am sure that families and school staff know exactly what to do. Some cases have already happened in Italy. in which a sick child has been in the classroom and the school has already restarted for days. There are precise protocols and procedures to be applied “.

Azzolina, as reported by Ansa, said she was ready in the name of the government to “challenge the decree of the Piedmont Region” which makes the school (and not the parents at home) check the temperature of the students before entry. in the classroom.
