This morning the Councilor for Education, María José López, held a meeting with the directors of the six public schools in Alhama to discuss the sanitary measures to be adopted for the next academic year 2020-2021.Among the main issues, there has been the extraordinary disinfection that will have to be carried out in the different schools from its reopening.
Following the instructions sent by the Ministries of Education and Health of the Autonomous Community, a general cleaning and disinfection must be carried out daily, or two if there are extracurricular activities.
In addition to three specific cleaning and disinfection of common areas and toilets every day. In this sense, the councilor explained that "the City Council has the powers to clean and maintain these centers under normal circumstances; in extraordinary cases, such as the one in which we find ourselves, we hope that the Autonomous Community can help us, because these measures represent a high cost for the municipal budget.
" The Ministry subordinates the assumption of these expenses to the money that the Region of Murcia may receive from the Government of Spain, "since, as they have told us, they do not have money to pay for it," López maintains.Another of the topics discussed has been the morning service and extracurricular activities.
"The intention of the City Council and school management teams is to maintain these programs, which we consider essential for the reconciliation of family and work life, but they will have to be more restrictive than other years due to the health crisis and in other special conditions that we are experiencing.
studying before the start of the course, "says the councilor, who stressed that" our commitment is to carry out these services in the best health and safety conditions.
