We will be waiting for you this Tuesday June 29th, as from 07:30 am.
As Lo Barnechea moves to phase 2, we are able to go back to face-to-face lessons at Santiago College from Tuesday June 29th. The access will be the same entrances as usual, both in the underground area and in the surface.
The return to classes will keep the schedule of the last face-to-face lessons, except for 9th to 12th grades, who will have a change in the afternoon classes:
PK – K : 7:55 to 13:30
1st to 8th grade : 7:55 to 15:30
9th to 12th grade : 7:55 to 16:40
This timetable is subject to exceptions for some High School students who will finish earlier, for example, when they have study hall during the last period of the day. The corresponding School Principal will inform any specific changes that may take place within a level, class or with a student.
Regarding the uniform for on-site classes, it will continue to be school sports uniform, warm clothes and students may wear the warmest coat or jacket they have. It’s important to keep in mind that the continuous ventilation of open windows and doors, helps us keep a constant air flow inside the buildings.
The last day of school during this first semester is Wednesday July 7th. As it was informed in the letter sent at the beginning of this year, Thursday 8th and Friday 9th of July, by Ministerial mandate, must be dedicated to work and evaluation of the first semester, including teachers’ councils and grade reports.
After the Winter break, students will return to classes on Tuesday July 27th. The teachers will return on Monday 26th, when they will gave a full day of training on sexuality update, particularly in the subjects of gender and sexual diversity. It is important to share this, as not only the regulations of the Ministry of Education curriculum specify that these subjects must be addressed with students, but also because questions, discussions and groups are arising around these contents at our School, as well as in many others.
On Tuesday July 27th, Middle and High School students will have a Wellbeing and Mental Health day session aimed to learn about the various areas that affect these aspects, as well as tools to promote good emotional management. Dr. Daniel Martinez, psychiatrist, along with other health professionals from the Wellbeing Institute, will be the speakers.
