Schools have been set to reopen Jan. 4, state officials confirmed.
La Voz newspaper reported that a memorandum signed by state officials says school staff must return to in-school instruction right after the Christmas break.
The document was signed by Secretary of Education Gerardo Solis.
However, the authorities said return to school will be voluntary, orderly, and safe for students.
So far, the Mexican government has not authorized vaccination for school age students.
Students will go to school alternatively.
School staff must avoid big crowds.
Local 37 Secretary General of the National Education Workers Union Ampelio Iñiguez said not all schools are ready for instruction. Previously the Local 2 Secretary General Juan Enrique Villanueva said 1,900 teachers are still owed their salaries. This could put school reopening in jeopardy.
