RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Chilean President Sebastian Piñera inaugurated the 2021 school year on Monday, after more than a year without in-person classes in the country, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
"The return to classes is a necessity, something fundamental. Of course we have to do it while protecting health, which is the first priority of all our government's plans," he said from a school in the Santiago Metropolitan Region.
The return to face-to-face classes will be gradual, consisting of a modality mixed with virtual classes. In addition, the process will be voluntary and flexible . . .
