School holidays will not be extended, the Moroccan government announced on Thursday, December 30. In a press statement, government spokesman Mustapha Baitas said that “ the return to schools will be done in the normal way, just after the school holidays, which will end next Sunday“.
” There will be no extension of school holidays“, Clearly declared the spokesperson of the government, during the press briefing at the end of the Council of the government.
And on the question of whether the Scientific Committee will present a recommendation to the government in order to extend the school holidays, sources familiar with the matter had previously confirmed to MoroccoLatestNews that this is ” currently excluded and that there is no guidance in this direction“.
Members of the scientific committee told MoroccoLatestNews than ” students cannot be held responsible for the negligence and laxity of parents, young people and the elderly in observing the necessary precautions and in carrying out the stages of the vaccination process“.
The same sources added that ” pupils have been widely vaccinated, reaching about 2,600,000 out of 2,800,000 vaccinated pupils, which means that they have contributed to herd immunity, unlike adults“.
