National Institute reopens

Temas:

Classes at the National Institute partially resumed today under heavy security.

Many of the students arrived with their parents to the campus, which was under heavy security.

Education Minister Marcela Paredes de Vasquez said that the increased security measures at the school should avoid further problems such as those experienced earlier this month, which led to the facility being closed.

A number of officers from the juvenile police were stationed at the campus this morning.

School Rector Roxana Casanova explained that officers will be located outside the school itself, but will be allowed to enter if there are problems. They will be stationed at the school through the end of the year.

She requested that parents help maintain an atmosphere of tranquility at the school.

Carlos Rivera, president of the school's Parents Club, said that the measures are needed.

"It is necessary to ensure the care of students, teachers and the physical structures of the campus," he said.

There have been 12 people arrested in connection with the July 7 riot at the school that led to its closure. These include eight minors.
