The parents will they be sanctioned if they do not send their child to the classroom on Monday, 22 June ? Even if the health protocol should be lessened, some institutions do not seem convinced of being able to accommodate all of the students and the parents may not, in fact, not all of them deliver their children to school.
While schools should re-open in the reception conditions “normal” and following a health protocol lightweight, municipal, and teachers organize themselves… and the parents wonder. Not all of them are considering not necessarily, in fact, handing their child to a nursery school, primary school or college as of Monday, June 22. Sometimes by practicality : some schools have already announced that the reception will not be full-time and as the services extra-curricular will not be insured. Parents therefore must arrange to keep their children and be able to work. Sometimes also by conviction, because they fear, for example, that the protocol, although lightweight, is a source of anguish for their little ones, or firewall that they fear contamination to the coronavirus, which is still circulating on the territory. Regardless of the reason, may have parents who will not call their children lundi22 June when it becomes “mandatory” ?
In the texts, the penalty can be heavy : when a child is absent from school more than four half-days in the month without valid justification, the school is required to report his case to the Inspection of the academy. In the worst case, the parents may face criminal prosecution and a penalty of up to 2 years in prison and 30,000 euros fine. The statement is, in effect, compulsory in France, and it is possible to make the choice to home school, you have to go through a declaration at the town hall and to the inspection of the academy.
Parents are at no risk, according to a union
But in the very particular context that we know today, parents face-they really a sanction ? According to the president of the national Union of lycées and colleges (SNALC) Jean-Rémi Girard, who was interviewed by LCI, ‘ les parents do not risk absolutely nothing ! ” According to him, “ the school principals and principal of college are not going to do the hunting for the parents, they will not lose time to note students who are absent and paste a board of discipline. At best, they will call the parents the first of the absence, the latter will find a good excuse and it will stop there. “
Interviewed Monday, the minister of Education, moreover, has not brandished threats of sanctions for parents who do not comply with the request of the government. This mandatory return to school will be so, it seems, on the basis of the volunteerism of the parents… and according to the capacity of institutions to accommodate students in the conditions that they consider to be acceptable and consistent with the health situation and the means they have.
