“As for the format [of training], the next year and after the winter holidays is a full—time format,” Kravtsov told reporters.
He added that the remote format will be introduced only if the epidemiological situation requires it.

“But so far we don’t see any point in using this format [online] or extending the holidays. We will see how the holidays will go and what the epidemiological situation will be,” the minister said.
In addition, Kravtsov answered the question about the day off on December 30 for teachers. According to him, this year the situation with the spread of infections, including coronavirus, is “not so acute”, which gives each region the right to declare this day a weekend or not.
Earlier, on December 8, the Rospotrebnadzor gave recommendations to schools in some regions to switch to distance learning due to the increase in the incidence of SARS.
So, in Pskov, all schools switched to remote control from December 8. The governor of the region, Mikhail Vedernikov, clarified that the remote mode will affect students from 5th to 11th grade.
In addition, Orenburg schoolchildren began studying remotely from December 9. In addition, the remote training mode operated in the city of Snezhinsk, Chelyabinsk region, until December 15.
From November 29 to December 5, 136 classes in 28 schools were transferred to distance learning in the Kaluga Region due to the high incidence of respiratory infections.
