Secondary schools

Rules and recommendations

Based on governmental measures, in-person education in secondary schools is banned. This means that children can't go to school at this time. Children are being taught through distance education.

The reason is the current epidemiological situation and a high risk of infection. A large number of children meet in the classroom for a relatively long period of time, they are also in direct contact with their teachers and parents. This is associated with the risk of transmitting the infection to many contacts.

For pupils, the school will reopen on November 30th. 9th graders will go to school as usual. The rest of the pupils will rotate in between distance and in-person schooling.
