We wish that all our school community, friends and families, are doing well and finding a path to restore their soul wellness and material belongings. After the September 19th earthquake, our school suffered some damage on its infrastructure. The College of Teaches (Coordinación Pedagógica), together with the school administrator, has taken steps so the school life may be restored in the best possible way and as soon as possible. The school has been inspected by two architects and a civil engineer. It is a structural engineer, who complies with the government requirements, the person who prepared and submitted the expert opinion about the current condition of our school. After we present this opinion to the educational and the civil protection authorities, and they accept it as accurate and true, we will be able to reopen the school and resume classes with our students.
The metal structure that holds each one of the cabins used by 5th, 8th and 9th is slightly bent. This impairs the general structure of the cabins. There is no risk of collapse but the recommendation is to repair them before any use. The cabin of a preschool group also suffered damages since the soil below the cabin floor slide towards the ravine that crosses the school land. This caused a crack on the floor and a shift of one of the cabin walls. While there is no risk of collapse, the whole cabin must be rebuilt. The classroom assigned this school year to Eurythmy and chorus suffered damages on the front wall, at both sides of the door, and there are cracks in the rest of the walls. Fortunately, there is no structural damage, and the repairs are almost finished. At the end of the land, on the area we call the forest, the wall fell down and we must rebuild a new one, as well as the stone fence in front of the 9th grade classroom. Small constructions scattered over the land of the school used long ago to keep dogs were impaired by the earthquake and so were demolished.

El sismo es un suceso completamente extraordinario, nadie espera que de un momento a otro nos encontremos en una situación semejante. Es obvio que asumir estas reparaciones es algo que está fuera de todo plan y nos obliga a buscar mecanismos que nos permitan salir adelante. También nos permite reconocer que solos no podremos lograrlo: necesitamos sus corazones, sus cabezas y sus manos en esta gran prueba.
