The duty of the school is to be extremely cautious in every health and safety measure in place.
No strategy of control alone can avoid the transmission of a disease; the integration of measures –big and small– is essential, inside the school and in every family.
The school needs us all: teachers, staff, and parents, for the preventive measures to be effective. We will ask each family to sign a responsibility form in which they give us their word to not send to school any student that presents symptoms.
The main goal of these guidelines is to limit the chains of contacts as more as possible, so the risk of community contagion is minimized. Each class will be set up as stable coexistence groups, or bubble groups; all measures look to ensure that students are only in contact with other students of the same bubble group. The regulation stipulates that the student ratio per class is for Prep School 20 students. For Secondary and Baccalaureate, it is 23 students. We have set up new classrooms for 9 different courses.
These measures will be adjusted and adapted in accordance with the evolution of the pandemic and the scientific knowledge available.

Daily control of waste removal
Social distance of 1.5 mts.
Frequent hand washing with water and soap

During September, extracurriculars will not start, to maintain the bubble groups of coexistence. As the situation evolves it will be considered the opening of activities, as long as these aren’t direct-contact activities (football, basket, and volleyball)
The School of Music will begin on the 15th of September and classes will be centered around the practice of the instrument individually. The teacher will disinfect the instruments and chairs at the end of each lesson. Group lessons of Theory are suspended.

At Alegra, we have put in place a Covid19 Commission. Since March, it has been working to deliver a good service during the pandemic and to be able to open the school in September. This Covid19 Commission is made up of people from several departments, school direction, management, teachers, communications, and the cleaning and services department. It will be running during the school year to adjust measures as needed.
Covid19 coordinator: Almudena Saucedo
Alegra is proactively following all established regulations to protect the health and safety on campus.
