This Monday is the end of the holidays for schoolchildren in zone B. For them, this start of the school year will above all be synonymous with many reductions in health measures.

Thanks to the decline of the Omicron wave, it is indeed the end of the masks in the playground.

Parents will also no longer be forced to complete self-test sworn statements.

Finally, students will now be able to mix more widely with classmates of their level and no longer just of their class.

The health protocol goes from level 3 to level 2 in primary schools (nursery and elementary) after the winter holidays in the different zones (February 21 for zone B, February 28 for A, March 7 for C).

The first to return are the schoolchildren of the academies of Strasbourg, Nancy-Metz, Reims, Lille, Amiens, Rouen, Caen, Rennes, Nantes, Orléans-Tours, Nice and Aix-Marseille.

Colleges and high schools remain at level 2.

A single test for contact cases

According to this level, “students can be divided into a class corresponding to their level in the event of the absence of their teacher”, writes the ministry in the Frequently Asked Questions updated on its website.

In the canteen, “the stability of the groups is sought and, as far as possible, the same pupils have lunch every day at the same table in the first level.

It is recommended to organize an individual service (trays, cutlery, water, dressing on the plate or on the tray)”.

In addition, "meetings with the parents of students must first and foremost be organized according to a system of making appointments, to avoid too many people mixing together".

Finally, the rules will also be relaxed for the tests, but in a week.

From February 28, contact case students will no longer have to do three but only one after two days.

This relaxation will concern all contact cases in the population.

Jean-Michel Blanquer also recently mentioned the hypothesis of the end of the mask in the classroom.

According to the Minister of Education, children should "very likely" be able to remove it "before the end of the school year".
