The Regional Association of Municipalities requested this Friday that the winter holidays be brought forward to this Monday due to the arrival of a new front-end system for next week.

Specifically, the group of community leaders of Bío Bío also warns that the establishments are not suitable to receive students.

It was through a letter sent to Undersecretary Manuel Monsalve, in his capacity as acting Minister of the Interior, that the mayors asked to advance the winter holidays to this Monday, June 17 in the region.

The letter emphasizes the consequences of the frontal system that has just declined and a new one predicted for this Monday.

For this reason, the mayor of Concepción, Álvaro Ortiz, as president of the Regional Association of Municipalities, requested to advance said period so as not to return to classes for only three days next week.

Thursday is a holiday, therefore, classes are only Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Which We are requesting to be able to advance the start of these winter holidays by three days.“he explained.

Along these lines, he stressed that “There are establishments that have suffered damage to their infrastructure, there are educational establishments that are shelters. There are teachers and students who have had a very bad time, and who are housed in one of the communes.

In addition, the problems inherent to schools are added. Of the 1,500 establishments in the Bío Bío region, at least between 50 and 70 have serious infrastructure problems such as leaks, flooding, humidity and roof blasting, and some are even functioning as shelters.

From the Seremi of Education it was pointed out that the suspension lasts until today and the situation is being reviewed, where there should be clarity this afternoon about what has been decided for next week. Until the closing of this note, the suspension of classes in educational establishments in the region remains in force until today.
