During the break you will need to wear a mask. Even the teachers should not be protected in the face during the lesson, rather wear the mask as soon as they finish explaining and, in any case, when they move outside the classroom.

The same Regions ask for more teachers and janitors and write: “The staff is insufficient with respect to the management of wider hours and with a greater need for control and vigilance, especially at entry and exit and when traveling, it is necessary to implement the equipment with particular attention to the staff Ata “. Janitors and administrative staff, in fact.In schools, the Presidents of the Regions still say, the surfaces will have to be sanitized frequently and the teachers themselves will have to disinfect the chair and objects “before giving the class to the next teacher”.

The Mayor of Treviso: “Delays on the works”
The mayor of Treviso and president of Anci Veneto, Mario Conte, said he was worried about the uncertainty about school construction works: “The mayors are extraordinary commissioners, but to date we have no certainty either of the funds or of the guidelines.

We cannot think of providing resources and guidelines always with last minute operations “.
