Suspension of operation of primary schools and kindergartens as of Monday

All primary schools and kindergartens are closed from Monday 16 November until November 27.

The pupils will continue their lessons via distance learning and educational television.

From Monday at 9 am – first day of implementation of the measures – ERT2 TV will broadcast lessons for primary school students. Distance learning will start on Wednesday, after the school holiday of November 17 and is mandatory.

Education Minister Niki Kerameus said that the measures are “of precautionary character” as the epidemiological burden in schools is very low but they target the reduction of the adults’ mobilisation.

She said that the recent developments of the pandemic in Greece ” are such that make these measures necessary in order to jointly and with determination address the spread of the virus in Greece.”
