Uruguay started the third phase of its return to classrooms across the country on Monday, with the exception of the Treinta y Tres department, the area of the country where most active cases of coronavirus are concentrated.
The third phase of the reopening of schools implies that education in Uruguay has returned to the situation before March 13th and that all the centers included in the National Administration for Public Education (ANEP) are in operation, even though the attendance is in class voluntary.
In short, according to the Uruguayan Presidency, more than 200,000 Uruguayan students have returned to the classroom in this sense.
The president of the ANEP Central Board, Robert Silva, emphasized that 85% more visitors were present in the elementary school in several centers he visited in Montevideo and Canelones. In the secondary school this percentage was 80 percent.
