QCOSTARICA – Parents and guardians of students may take and pick up their children from schools, even if they have vehicle restrictions on that day. The condition is to carry proof.
Drivers must carry a letter issued by the educational center, or present the school card with the student’s photograph or the registration document.
This was announced on Friday, after announcing the changes in vehicle restriction measures that begin on Monday, July 12.

“Since the school year begins again, an exception has been included that would be for transfer to public or private schools. This is because there is a significant percentage of families that move their children in vehicles to schools,” said the president of the National Emergency Commission (CNE), Alexánder Solís.
In the event that a traffic officer stops the vehicle, the driver must provide at least one of those documents, to avoid a fine of ¢107,000 for violating the sanitary restriction due to the coronavirus pandemic.
