Students focus now on the effect of a powerful earthquake that has devastated the state’s central and eastern regions.
The Duval schools district announced Sunday that more than 2,500 students were evacuated to their homes for a week, including nearly 2,000 from their schools.
The district also said more than 800 students at two other schools were placed on a “restricted” school bus.
The county of Duval has more than 200 schools, including Duval Valley High School, Duval Central High School and Duval West High School.
The schools were closed due to the quake and have since reopened.
School districts across the state were ordered to begin accepting students on Monday after the earthquake struck the region late Monday evening.
The National Weather Service reported that a magnitude 6.7 quake struck near Duval on the outskirts of the capital, Bogota.
The area was closed until after the quake, but the National Weather Office later said it was reopened.
The quake also struck near Bogota’s city of Bogota, about 70 miles (120 kilometers) northeast of the city.
Bogota police Chief Jorge Ruiz said he did not have any reports of injuries but that residents of the town were evacuated.
Ruiz said that the quake did not cause any casualties and that officials were working to determine the source of the quake.
“I am worried about the people that were evacuated, but we are working on finding out what the source is,” Ruiz told reporters in Bogota on Sunday.
Bergamasco was a large city of 2.5 million people and home to several factories and a major rail hub.
The region is the center of Colombia’s production and transportation industry.
