Students return to school as Israel emerges from Covid-19 lockdown
Issued on: Modified:
It's been almost two months since children at a Jerusalem school played together. "In the morning they came, and they were so high, they didn't know what to do, where to play first," their teacher said.
Three days a week, a Jerusalem school welcomes half of one class. They use the green toys. On the other three days, it's the second half, who use the blue toys.
But only after parents complete a form each day recording their child's temperature.
Returning to school is not yet compulsory in Israel. "We told [parents] from the beginning, if you don't want to bring them back ... until the beginning of [next] year, it's okay, we understand," said a school staff member.
