The return of face-to-face classes for Quintana Roo earmarked for August 30

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — In Quintana Roo, the return to face-to-face classes will be in a voluntary and staggered scheme says Governor Carlos Joaquín, adding that students are earmarked to return to classes August 30.

The announcement was made Wednesday after a meeting with the Federal Public Education Secretary Delfina Gómez, who says a series of requirements must be met for students and teachers to be able to return to face-to-face classes.

Joaquin says the first requirement will be the achievement of a yellow epidemiological light. The second requirement is that schools are in good condition to allow the safe return of students, parents and teachers.

The third requirement, he says, is that the appropriate protocols exist for each of the schools in the way of health including the number of students per classroom and which days they will attend school.

Fourth is understanding that the return to face-to-face classes is on a voluntary basis. Joaquin says that the return to classes will be voluntary until the state reaches a green epidemiological light.

Work is currently being done on schools across the state for the return to classes. He says that the 2021-2022 school year will run from August 30 of this year until July 28, 2022.
