Covid emergency, off to class parties for the end of the school year

Last days of school, class dinners for the end of the year, parties and convivial situations. The last week of school has begun and the greeting machine is already in motion with everyone the risks that the gatherings can lead to the spread of coronaviruses. Prefecture, Region and local authorities, gathered in the “school-transport coordination table” which, from the return to the classroom, monitors the safety of what happens inside the classrooms but also around the buildings, launches an appeal to students and families “not to lower the guard and we must not lose sight of the priority objective, which is the complete disappearance of Covid. For this reason – the institutions continue – we extend a warm invitation to all students and their families because, despite the understandable desire to celebrate, occasions for gathering and, more generally, any risky behavior under the profile of health prevention are carefully avoided “: In short, the last bell must be celebrated without excess, with a mask and above all at a distance , hoping that the somersaults that the school has been forced to in the last year, will not be repeated.
