Students can continue to go to school full-time regardless of the color code. The education field has decided that. Distance learning will be possible and the mouth mask obligation will be expanded.
Full-time contact education remains the norm for all pupils in primary and secondary education. The educational field decided this during a marathon meeting. Schools will be able to provide distance learning for the second and third grades if necessary, provided that all pupils are effectively reached.
This means that the plans were thoroughly adjusted. In the initial scripts, which were drawn up in August, students had to go to school in code orange week after week from the third year of secondary school. That is now off the table. Even in code orange, and even in code red, everyone remains welcome at school. There are a few strictures to this. In primary education, for example, all extracurricular activities are suspended except for swimming lessons. Children are also given permanent places in the refectory and the presence of visitors and other outsiders at school is strictly limited. In secondary education, this includes alternating playing times if possible, meals per class group and maximum fixed places in fixed classrooms for all pupils.
Mouth mask duty extended
There will also be additional guidelines compared to the initial scenario. For example, the physical education classes will follow the protocol for the sports sector. This means that in secondary school there may only be indoor sports with a distance of one and a half meters. Showers may no longer be used. Changing rooms may only be used if everyone wears a mouth mask and if the entire room is cleaned after use by a class group.
The mouth mask obligation is also being expanded: from now on mouth masks will also be worn on the playground, unless the distance of one and a half meters is respected. This can be a motivation for students to respect the distance rule, because then the mouth mask can be omitted during the breaks. There will also be an information campaign to better explain the importance of mouth masks and keeping your distance to both students and teachers.
Schools now have – according to the original plans – a maximum of two weeks to make the switch. This means that management and teachers must have implemented the measures regarding the new orange code by the autumn holidays at the latest. An extension of the autumn holidays – as decided in French-speaking education – is not an issue, according to the Flemish education sector. Minister Weyts already made it appear last week that he was not a fan of the idea.
