Primary school students in Wietrzychowice (Małopolskie Voivodeship) will not go to lessons on September 1 – instead they will open their laptops. – Both the director and his deputy are in quarantine. That is why we made the decision to learn remotely – says tvn24.pl, head of Tomasz Banek
Information that from September 1 to September 4, lessons will be held only remotely was published on the school’s website.
– Parents were warned about this earlier – assures Tomasz Banek, the head of Wietrzychowice.
The tvn24.pl interlocutor adds that the decision about distance learning was made so as not to make parents and students nervous.
– Technically, we are ready for the children to start working stationary. However, we gave ourselves a little more time to button everything up. We must be sure that we have done everything to make the classes as safe as possible – informs the local government official.
Parents who do not have remote education equipment can report this fact to the commune.
– We have released 18 computers so far. We still have reserves. So far, no one has reported any problems related to the lack of network access – says Tomasz Banek.
He adds that from September 7, classes at school will most likely take place in the traditional way.
The sanitary services were also informed about the situation in the facility.
– The application for introducing temporary distance learning was well argued, therefore the district sanitary inspector in Tarnów gave a positive opinion – says Anna Armatys, spokesman for the provincial sanitary and epidemiological station in Krakow.
In the Wietrzychowice commune – according to Armatys – there are currently 14 people infected with the coronavirus, 28 others are in quarantine.
