” In accordance with the extension of temporary school closure due to COVID-19, and in order to prepare students to attend school in the first semester, as well as monitor their  health and well-being, and provide necessary instruction, “distributed attendance” will be implemented by each school, divided either by area or grade, while ensuring the thorough prevention of infection by avoiding, as much as possible, contact in closed spaces.
