3. Lockdown from 07.01.21 until 18.01.21

Unfortunately, there is another lockdown. Of course, as with any lockdown at school supervision by teachers takes place. Your child will be assisted in completing the work assignments. Afternoon care is also available until 17:30. If you need early care for your child, this can also be offered.

2nd Lockdown from 17.11-4.12.2020

As you have already heard from the media in the last few hours, another lockdown (from 17.11. to 4.12.20 - please note: 7.12.20 is a pupil free day at our school, therefore the first day of school is 9.12.20) has been imposed.

The school will of course remain open for all pupils who need supervision or help with homeschooling tasks.

However, please register your child with the class teacher or by e-mail to the director if you wish your child to attend school.

This is the only way to ensure that there are enough teachers on site to provide your child with adequate care and support.

All class teachers will, of course, also be providing comprehensive homeschooling.

The next few weeks during the lockdown will be used to repeat and consolidate the lessons learned so far.

Many thanks for your cooperation with the teachers! Take care of yourself and your family, and stay healthy!

New Hygiene Handbook

Dear Parents,

Please find the link to the new hygiene handbook from the health ministry (20th October 2020).

Neues Hygienehandbuch mit Verfahrensleitlinien

How can I protect myself and my family from the coronavirus?

As with seasonal flu, the following measures are recommended:

  •     Wash your hands several times a day with soap and water or a disinfectant containing alcohol

  •     Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (not with your hands) if you cough or sneeze

  •     Dispose of the tissue immediately and wash your hands afterwards

  •     Avoid direct contact with sick people

The most important and effective measures for personal protection as well as for the protection of other persons from infection with respiratory pathogens are good hand hygiene, correct coughing procedures and keeping a minimum distance (approx. 1 to 2 metres) from persons suspected of being ill.

These measures generally also apply during the flu season.

Coronavirus explained for children

Unfortunately it is often difficult for children to understand the news.

It can even seem threatening to them and cause them unnecessary fear. But to make sure that even the youngest children know what to do, the most important questions and procedures are summarised here.
