“During this time, we all need to ensure our children are spending their time in a safe manner, and compile their timetables for the weekdays in a responsible manner. Keep in mind that you need to maintain a relationship of trust with your children – stay in touch with them, keep informed of their plans and friends,” the mayor told the parents of school students.
The adults need to remind the children of the rules for staying safe at home, on the road, in public transport, and in contacts with unknown people, he added.
“Such precautionary talk can help avert tragic accidents and save health and lives of underage children,” Victor Kuvaytsev stressed.
The mayor urged all citizens to be kind and responsible, and pay attention to children left without their parents’ attention.
“No child is a foreigner,” he reminded.
Even though the students will be staying away from schools, their studies continue through long-distance courses, the press service of the Penza city administration informed PenzaNews agency.
“Teachers and homeroom teachers keep in touch with parents and children: they consult them on recently studied topics and conduct in-depth learning sessions. Teachers themselves stay in touch through phones, e-mail and school websites. The schools, in turn, conduct a series of anti-epidemic measures, including sanitary cleaning of classrooms,” the city hall explained.
