“The staggered hours? A nightmare for those who live outside the city and for those who have afternoon activities and systematically enter the second shift. We ask that at least they rotate”: students and parents on the barricades in schools with an already longer amount of hours (as artistic and professional) or where, for organizational reasons, the classes or addresses have been unpacked in two and a group always enters after 9.30, if not at 10. At the Majorana high school in Rho a long letter came to the attention of the principal from the parents of the second: “The means of transport in many cases (in Lainate, Nerviano and Pregnana) are absent at that time, forcing the children to take unacceptable and almost” abandonment of minors “itineraries, alternatively, parents need to organize , but there are work commitments “, they write asking for an urgent meeting. The “busted” lunch in the absence of canteens is also in the sights: “Sandwiches five days a week”, the parents blur. “The children will in many cases be forced to leave the house around 8.30 to return at 17.30, making difficult, partial, if not impossible in some cases, two fundamental activities for 15-year-olds: the necessary study to be able to face high school in the best way and sport “. At the Pasolini in Milan some classes that always entered at 10 were on a war footing. Result? “One day they come in at 7.50am, the others at 10am. They finish very late”, a father shakes his head. Parents ask the principals for more flexibility, who have chosen different strategies to respect the “Milan Pact for schools” according to which 70% must enter by 8 am, the others after 9.30.

Some exceptions were granted by the Prefecture, but after the technical discussions with the Municipality of Milan, the Metropolitan City and transport agencies examined the individual situation. There are 32 “exceptions” for the schools of Milan city – between state and equal – eleven for the schools of the hinterland, from Gadda di Paderno to Marconi di Gorgonzola. Green light in these cases to a limited percentage deviation (from 5% to 10%) or to a limited hourly variation with respect to the second entry “compatible with the organization of the local public transport network”. The “school poles” and the areas around which several schools revolve are among the special cases. Like via Ulisse Dini: “We have examined the flows – explains the headmaster of Varalli, Alessandro Gullo -. In addition to us, Torricelli and Allende also the boys from Agnesi and Feltrinelli arrive. We have asked for and obtained admission. at 7.45, 8.45 and 9.45 and the percentages are reversed: at 7.45 the least numerous group arrives. Even the intervals have been staggered, so that we can go out “.

Admissions at 8.40 and 9.30 granted to the classic Carducci as last year, also due to the proximity of the civic Manzoni and the schools around Loreto. “We have 40% of the boys from outside the province – recalls the principal Andrea di Mario -, it is an advantage for them to arrive a little later, but we have kept the 50-minute hours so as not to finish too late, also because in the afternoon study is a lot and Dad is not yet archived: when there are quarantines, the 60-minute hours in front of a screen are heavy “. The choreutist Tito Livio was granted entry at 8.20 also to allow students to arrive in the Dance Academies on time. Thursday first budget in the Prefecture.
