Helsinki after the transition to the spread of the corona epidemic, a mask recommendation has been prescribed for high schools (HS 21.11.). The distribution of students’ masks, their proper use and their disposal have been added to the tasks of subject teachers.
At the same time, teachers run distance and contact teaching through the City of Helsinki’s network, which has been running continuously for another week. They try to take care of the full realization of the curriculum without any relief.

How many of us teachers can handle it until Christmas?
