Rosa Battista, understanding 2: “We have decided that for a few days in some buildings, such as in the primary school of San Bernardo, children will eat sandwiches instead of the traditional lunch and in this way we can guarantee compliance with the provisions”
In the schools including the territory, teaching activities resumed fairly regularly, perhaps with less difficulty than expected. The rules decided by the government with the decree of 7 January had raised concerns about some problems.
On Sunday 9th, the school administrators and their collaborators stayed connected until late in the evening to make sure that the next day everything worked in the best way.
“We all worked until the last moment, but the facts proved us right – he says with satisfaction Christina Martha, manager of the Pavone Canavese complex -. The return went quite well; it is true that we have a certain number of absent teachers, but in essence we are in the seasonal average. At the moment we have only one primary school class in Dad, due to a contagion that occurred in the extracurricular environment ».
«Even here – he says Rosa Battista, manager of the second inclusive of Ivrea – we reopened without too many problems, but unfortunately we have many absences among the staff, both teachers and Ata. For the moment we are able to do it but I am afraid that in the next few days we may be forced to reduce the hours ». «One of the most delicate problems – observes Battista – concerns the time of lunch for the rules contained in the decree provide for a distance of two meters between the pupils. We have decided that for a few days in some complexes, such as for example in the San Bernardo primary school, children will eat sandwiches instead of the traditional lunch and in this way we can guarantee compliance with the provisions ».
“I confirm that the theme of lunch is one of the most delicate – he says Guido Gastaldo, manager of the inclusive of Azeglio – and we certainly cannot think of suspending lessons at 12.30 to allow students to go and eat at home because in many cases we have students who live in other municipalities ».
All normal even in the inclusive of Settimo Vittone, directed by the manager Christmas Necchi which does not report any problems. “We have a couple of teachers suspended from the service because they are not vaccinated, but it seems to me that we are in the norm,” says Necchi.
In fact, the numbers are precisely these: in the comprehensive we interviewed the suspended employees, including teachers and non-teachers, are very few, we are well below 2%.
In two cases, including Ivrea 2, the manager had to intervene in person to force two teachers to leave the classroom; in other cases the suspension took place without too many trauma, in one case the suspended teacher expressed surprise, because she did not imagine that the rule would really be applied. In no case was it necessary for the police to intervene, as unfortunately has happened in other cities ».
