The school is part of the Parkstad Limburg Foundation for Secondary Education (SVOPL). “The corona infections of the two teachers are separate from each other”, says John Monsewije. He is chairman of the board of the education umbrella organization. He has understood from the GGD Limburg South that there is no connection between the two infections. “There is no chain reaction in which teachers ignite each other here.” There are more than 1,300 students at the Sintermeerten College.
The five teachers who remain in home quarantine as a precaution will continue to teach as usual, says Monsewije. “They provide online lessons from home. So the students miss the presence of their teacher in the classroom, but not the lesson itself.” In the teacherless classes, other teachers supervise so that online classes run smoothly.
