School has only resumed ten days ago, but there are already more than 3,000 classes closed due to cases of Covid-19.

Since the start of the school year, more than 3,000 classes have already been closed due to the coronavirus epidemic. Six times more than last week. This closure protocol applies to primary and sixth grade, since children under 12 cannot be vaccinated. Thousands of families are forced to review their organization. In the Forveille family, it is the mother who will have to play teacher all week.

Ethan is six years old, and barely returned to first grade, his class has just closed because of the Covid-19. “We try to organize ourselves as best we can, you have to be a mother canteen, school friend at recess”, says the mother. Deprived of school but no hugs, the student does not seem to suffer from the situation. During her work, the mother chooses activities such as plastic arts or drawing to distract her son.
