All municipalities in the South have carried out maintenance and safety works in state educational centres providing sanitary material to comply with the COVID-19 protocol to ensure a safe start back to school.
Municipalities in the south of the island have carried out different measures to improve the educational facilities and purchase of school materials, including an increase in the number of staff, so that the school year can begin without unexpected events due to the health crisis caused by COVID-19.
Thus, for example, the Adeje City Council has developed an action plan to collaborate with public schools in the municipality, the most extraordinary action being implemented is the use of 21 monitors who are part of the Safe School Road campaign the monitors act as agents of awareness, offering information and support on how to apply all mandatory health measures that help prevent the spread of the virus. These agents will be responsible for ensuring compliance with measures such as continuous hand washing or safety distances.
For this, they have been equipped with hydroalcoholic gels and have been instructed on how to act so that children, parents and companions respect all sanitary measures when entering the schools. These monitors will be distributed, in shifts established for this purpose, by the public centres of Adeje Armeñime, Barranco Las Torres, Los Olivos, Fañabé, Adeje Casco and Tijoco Bajo. In addition, in Adeje more than 100,000 euros have been invested in conditioning and improvement works at the different educational centers.
In Arona, the City Council has arranged a special security plan for the beginning of the school year, in which some thirty members of the Local Police and Civil Protection will be in charge of facilitating access to and from the educational centres supporting students and families to adapt to the new preventive measures in place preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the municipality.
