There are over 180,000 students from Abruzzo who can return to class from tomorrow. With the Draghi decree, schools will reopen in all 305 Abruzzo municipalities but the rules on distance learning will vary according to the risk range. In the 288 locations in orange, all pupils will return behind the school desks up to eighth grade. In high schools, on the other hand, teaching will be 50 percent in attendance. In the remaining 17 red municipalities that will have to deal with the maximum restrictive measures, face-to-face lessons will take place up to sixth grade, all the others will continue to follow from home.
The government decree also bans the governors, stating that they cannot decide for themselves whether to close schools. But one of the great unknowns related to the fateful day of returning to class remains that of transport. Is the system ready in Abruzzo? Yes second Max Di Pasquale, the director of Tua, the only regional transport company that al Center he says: “We have deployed firepower.”
THE RULES. Before sending their children to school, families are required to check their body temperature. Parents should definitely not send children to school who have a fever or other symptoms, such as cough, headache, gastrointestinal problems, sore throat, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, nasal congestion, chills, loss or decrease in sense of smell or of taste, diarrhea, or who in the last 14 days have come into contact with Covid patients or people in precautionary isolation.
All pupils of primary and secondary school must be equipped by the family with a disposable or other type of mask (for example washable), to be used in the moments of entry, exit, movements within the school, when interpersonal distance cannot be guaranteed of one meter and on other occasions reported by school staff. It is advisable to use a hygienic bag to store the personal protective equipment when it is not intended for use.
THE PAUSE MOMENTS. In primary and secondary schools, each hourly unit will provide at least five minutes of “relaxation break”, during which pupils can go to the bathroom, staggered and in case of actual need.
During the relaxation period or when the time changes, a change of air in the classroom will be carried out. Pupils will remain in their classrooms and will be able to have a strictly personal snack. No exchange of food or drink is allowed. During breaks, pupils can go to the bathroom. During the intervals, the air will be changed.
INPUTS AND OUTPUTS. They must take place in neat rows and with masks worn. In every single school complex, entry and exit routes will be arranged, where possible using all available entrances, including safety doors and emergency stairs.
Parents must undertake to strictly respect the times indicated for entry and exit.
ILLNESS AT SCHOOL. Should a student feel unwell, he will be immediately isolated. The family will be notified immediately and will be required to pick up the minor as soon as possible. It is essential to ensure the availability of a family member or delegate during school hours.
TRANSPORTS. In view of the restart there was a joint work between Tua, the Region, prefectures and schools. «We have organized all the preparatory activities for the resumption of the school year, according to the technical indications. We will reconnect with the pre-existing organizational model ». Then the director explains that the same organization is based on the staggering of school entrance and exit times. “This means that with the same vehicle it is possible to double the capacity of use and, if this is not possible due to long travel times, the ncc, ie the renters with driver, will intervene”.
Furthermore, this system “is further strengthened by the support of private carriers, therefore by additional means that are combined. For the additional races we also made use of temporary staff, in order to be able to maximize production ».
THE NUMBERS. In addition to the workforce and the Tua fleet, “there is talk of 850 drivers, 840 buses”, in addition to sub-concessions, “45 buses already contracted”, Di Pasquale says, “40 young people with temporary contracts and about 90 renters will be taken back” .
THE CONTROLS. Furthermore, checks were carried out on the fleet to verify its status and «there is a planning team that is also working these days. I think that, even if I cannot foresee the imponderable, the machine is ready », continues the director of Tua.
THE ANALYSIS. «The last organizational model worked», Di Pasquale affirms, «so it is appropriate to repeat it. It must be said that the system put in place is given for teaching at 75%, i.e. for a number of students higher than that foreseen at present (50%, ed). The average level of service will certainly be sufficient, but there may be some out-of-scale data and, in that case we will go to intervene and remedy. The first week “, Di Pasquale concludes,” will also have a running-in purpose and the first checks will be made already on the 7th afternoon. Any changes will be made after the first week ».
