Just days after many schools across Israel reopened, many schools were forced to close, and thousands of students were sent into isolation. A single student in Chadera was diagnosed with the coronavirus, sending over 2,000 students and teachers into isolation.
Ateret Chaya Mushka in Beitar Illit, EY, a Chabad kindergarten and elementary school, became the first to announce that it would close its doors again following the recent spike in coronavirus cases in educational institutions.
In a letter to the school’s parent body, Principal Mrs. Nechama Shachar wrote that based on the direction of the mara d’asra Harav Asher Lemil HaCohen the school would once again close its doors, and that students should go back to virtual learning.
The school serves over 150 students across its kindergarten and elementary school.
Israel’s Health Minister Yuli Edelstein warned today that without the public’s help, Israel could swiftly return to lockdown conditions.
