São Paulo – Ten days after returning to face-to-face classes, private schools in the state of São Paulo already register cases of contamination by the coronavirus. In institutions such as Móbile, Santa Cruz, São Luís, Santa Marcelina, in São Paulo, and Jaime Kratz, in Campinas, all classified as elite, students, teachers and other education workers tested positive for covid-19. Meanwhile, in the public network, the Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp) has already registered 262 cases of covid-19 in state schools throughout the state.

Despite the speech that health protocols guarantee the safety of back to school, the director of the Brazilian Association of Private Schools (Abepar), Arthur Fonseca Filho, admitted that situations like these will be recurrent as long as the pandemic is not controlled. “They will happen in all schools almost every day,” he said in an interview with the newspaper The State of S. Paulo. This is precisely the argument of teachers and other education workers, from private and public schools, who do not accept going back to school in the current situation.

Private and public schools must operate with a maximum of 35% of students per classroom.

Colégio São Luís, also in the south zone, removed three classes from face-to-face classes after registering after the detection of cases of covid-19. Students should only return after the week of Carnival. São Luís also claims that the contamination did not occur at school.

At Colégio Santa Cruz, on the west side of the city, two cases of covid-19 were recorded after returning to school: a worker and a student.

Covid-19 in the public network

Apeoesp recorded, until today (11), 262
cases of covid-19 in the middle of back to school in the state school system. The classes
were resumed last Monday (8), but teachers had to participate
planning activities in the previous week. The government of John
Doria (PSDB) does not comment on the figures raised by teachers, but closed
seven schools for covid-19 cases this week.

Teachers have been on strike since Monday against back to school amid the new coronavirus pandemic, maintaining only remote teaching activities. They highlight the strike with a sanitary action, in defense of life. According to Apeoesp, the schools were not properly structured as the Doria government says. Many of them have not yet completed reforms.

Among the main problems are poor ventilation of the rooms, small spaces, crowding at the entrance and exit from classes, expired gel alcohol, lack of bathrooms. This week, schools can receive up to 35% of students per class.
