Information Covid-19 regulations
Our school and covid-19 regulations - 11th April 2022
Testing for Covid:
From 11 April 2022, it is no longer necessary to do a confirmation test at the GGD after a positive self-test. Self-testing in case of complaints remains important. Because of the self-test you know whether you have corona or not. And you can adjust your behavior accordingly.
Children who are unwell should stay home. We recommend that the children go back to school only when they are free of complaints.
The children and adults no longer need to wear masks but can if they wish to.
Whenever possible, parents should continue to drop off their children at the gate (or in the playground for the younger children from group 0 and 1).
Pick up times
When picking up their children, parents can come onto the playground and wait for their children in designated areas.
Entering the school building
Parents are now allowed to enter the school premises in specific situations (when picking up their children earlier for an appointment, when invited to do so by school staff etc.). When doing so, they need to stay cautious and preferably use hydroalcohol gel before entering.
What the school will do
Our school will continue to inform parents if there is a positive case in your child’s class and ask you to closely monitor your child for the development of symptoms and to test for complaints that fit with Corona. We will continue to seek and follow the advice from the GGD.
Birthdays are very special moments and the children are very welcome to celebrate their birthday in school. They may bring a small treat to share with their class at snack time, e.g. a small plain cupcake, a small box of raisins or some fruit. We kindly remind you that we are nut free schooland that you should not bring any food item that contains any type of nuts. If you choose to bring cupcakes, please ensure the class teacher receives a full list of the ingredients (as allergies are not limited to nuts and we also have children who may not eat certain food item). Please do not bring large cakes that need to be cut in class or any food unless you are sure of the ingredients inside.
Party bags may be given out in class by your child at the end of the school day and taken home where the parents can monitor what is being eaten by their child.
General information for families living in the Netherlands:
We understand that it is important for our families to go and visit their families overseas. We kindly ask you to act in a responsible manner, follow the regulations in place and even take extra measures to keep our community safe (for example getting tested after your return from overseas as a precaution). Please remember that our aim is always to keep the school and your children safe and that only your vigilance will help us avoid another school closure.
The travel and quarantine regulations regularly change and it is important that you check regularly the up to date information provided by the Dutch government.on page below.
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
