Public Education Secretary (SEP) Aurelio Nuño reported that classes have been suspended in 11 states as a precautionary measure while damage to the school buildings is assessed. Classes will resume on Monday.

He said out that there will be no classes for students from preschool, including kindergartens, to high school in Mexico City and in the states of Tlaxcala, Morelos, Hidalgo, Puebla, Veracruz, Tabasco, Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Guerrero for schools under the control of the SEP. Many universities also closed their doors as a precaution and are expected to reopen on Monday.

Aurelio Nuño emphasized that only minor damages have been found in schools, such as damaged fences or walls and broken glass, and that more accurate figures of damages will have to be made during the course of the day.

The school infrastructure will be evaluated to assess whether it is in a position to be used to ensure the safety of the children, he added.
