On the first day of the winter holidays, the Buenos Aires Government will anticipate how the return to face-to-face classes will be in August. The objective is that, progressively, full attendance is restored in the City’s schools. Therefore, the bubbles will become the complete courses and will no longer be divided as before.
Two weeks ago, the City enabled presence in high school, which spent a couple of months with a bimodality system. It was done, as explained, to take advantage of the fact that in the two weeks prior to winter holidays those with low grades tend to recover content.
As he did last year with the “gradual plan” to add activities after the total closure of the hard quarantine of the first months of the pandemic, now Horacio Rodríguez Larreta seeks to take the initiative with the classes, at the same time as the electoral campaign of facing the legislative elections takes its first steps.

Unlike what has happened so far, that the courses are divided into two reduced bubbles that even in some institutions do not share the schedule, from August we will advance so that the bubble is each course and that the face-to-face classes are as similar as possible to what they were “before the pandemic.”
According to sources from the Buenos Aires government Clarion, the plan includes the initial and primary levels, which are the ones that recovered the most presence, and also the secondary, tertiary and university. In these last two cases, they remain in complete virtuality.
The formal announcement will be made by the Buenos Aires head of government at 1.30 pm at the Mataderos Educational Center, where he will be accompanied by the Chief of Staff, Felipe Miguel; the Ministers of Education, Soledad Acuña and of Health, Fernán Quirós, and the Undersecretary of International and Institutional Relations, Francisco Resnicoff.
