The aim of this study was to investigate what are the emotions of teachers and students in the face of the reorganization of the school calendar that suspended the classroom instruction and replaced them with not courses, during the social isolation needed to contain the progress of Covid-19. The method adopted was Mann-Whitney statistical inference. The application of this model allows testing whether the distributions are equal in location, that is, whether one population tends to have higher values than the other, or whether they have the same median. The two populations tested were teachers and students, with a survey collecting perceptions in a questionnaire with ten emotions. The result of this research presents three different emotions: fear, sadness, and frustration. Fear is a feeling that provides a state of alert demonstrated by the fear of doing something. The sadness is defined as the act in which our power to act is reduced or contradicted. Frustration is an emotional state that accompanies the interruption of a motivated behavior, i.e., it is a psychological state that results from the blockage of motivation caused by any barrier that prevents you from achieving a project or objective expected. Considering the results, it is suggested to school managers along with the academic community, if you listen to these emotions and develop measures to counteract them, under penalty of not reaching the goal of reorganization of the school calendar.
