School lessons to return in September
Spanish government says that schools may host some activities before the next academic year, during phase 2 of lockdown exit
Spanish president Pedro Sánchez has announced that there will be no face-to-face classes in schools until September, when the next school year begins.
In an address unveiling the Spanish government’s four-phase plan for exiting lockdown, Sánchez explained a full return to classrooms will fall under the so-called "new normality".
Sánchez did say, however that from Phase Two of the easing of lockdown measures, schools will be able to open to host some face-to-face activities with students.
Such activities include reinforcement activities, students sitting university entrance exams, and ensuring that children under the age of six can go to school if parents have to go to work and have no one to leave their children with.
Where students do attend schools during Phase 2, groups will be limited to a maximum of 15 students.
