LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...

Important Information for the Return to School

Dear parents,

More students have returned to school today. As we have had regular online programmes since 18 March, the pupils are well on track and they will complete all the required tasks, without any problems, by the end of the school year.

Our staff is well prepared and procedures and protocols have been put in place to ensure a safe environment for all.

The danger of the virus is still not over, thus, responsible behaviour and the adherence to the safety routines remain of paramount importance.

Furthermore, please do not send your children to school if they are ill and inform us if there is any suspicion of infection.

Please be aware that all our students have lessons according to our regular timetable from today on.

The times of the lessons are below. Please pick up your child on time.

Service Project Presentations

Our Service project journey for MYP 1 and MYP 2 has successfully concluded for this school year. The pupils went through a long process of investigating and addressing the needs of different communities through service action. They needed to address their service actions through the lens of the main theme: “Be part of the solution, not the pollution”.

To conclude their actions and defined goals they listened to the presentation of Dr Katarina Polajnar Horvat, a researcher at ZRCSAZU Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Science and Arts, about how to raise environmental awareness and behaviour, through visuals such us comic strips.

The pupils were very creative, and this school year presented their work through visual representations.

I would like to congratulate the pupils and their mentors for their dedication, hard work and flexibility.

New Rules & Routines for School

Dear parents,

We have been informed about the new rules and routines for next week, when all our students will return to school. The safety distance of 1.5 m in classrooms and generally on school grounds is not required anymore, but we will continue to try to adhere to it as our classes are not so big.

Pupils should wait in their groups, regarding the safety distance from other groups/classes, for their teachers to take them to their classes in the playground area entrance through the garden gate,

the little garden to the left on the path to the main entrance (photo), according to this schedule every day:

08:00: Kindergarten
08:05: 4M, 5M, 7I & 7M
08:10: 3M & 1M, 6M
08:15: 2M, 8M & 8I

Please do not be late, as there will be a special protocol to enter the school. In case your child is late, call this number 051728759 and a teacher will come and take your child to their classroom.

Parents and other adults are not allowed to enter the school building. If you need any documents or you have any issues contact our office or receptionist.

Only healthy students can come to school.

The lessons will be organised according to our regular timetables for all grades, you can find them on our webpage:  http://en.os-danilekumar.si/students/

There will be no extracurricular activities or extra programmes unless we inform you otherwise.

If your PYP child/ren is/are not in the Afternoon Programme, you must pick them up from the same area as where you leave them to enter the school, immediately after their last lesson. All PYP students will have lunch during school time in their classrooms.

The kindergarten and Afternoon Programme will take place until 16:00. Parents will be able to page their children from the main entrance waiting area.

For the pupils who stay at home, we will continue to send some materials and tasks once a week. We expect students to complete their work and send it to their teachers in the PYP or post it on OneNote in the MYP. Our teachers will not be able to give them feedback regularly, but they will assess them when deciphering their final grade.

If necessary, we will call your child to school to do summative assessment tasks. These pupils’ parents will get an e-mail about testing from me.

Please let us know if your child is not returning to school. We also need to know if your child will attend the Afternoon programme and have meals in school.

If you want your child (grades 1-5) to attend the Afternoon Programme and have meals, please complete the attached form (here) and send it back to us as soon as possible, the latest by 07:00, on Monday, 1 June.

Please let us know if any of the students who have been at home until today, from K1, K2, grades 1-3 and grades 8, will return to school.

The Return to School

Dear parents,

You have probably already learnt through the media that all pupils will return to school next week: grades 4 & 5 on Monday, 1 June, and grades 6 & 7 on Wednesday, 3 June. 

I still have to discuss the logistical procedures and timetables with our administration and staff.

I will send you more information and detailed instructions for next week later today.

Kind regards,

Irena Šteblaj
