COVID-19

Organization of school work at the beginning of autumn 2020

From the 24th of August, students will attend classes that are two hours in their timetable, but other classes will be taught through INNA and other communication software that teachers use. In this way, all students meet their teacher and fellow students in all courses, once a week. In the first week of teaching, students attend all two hour classes according to the timetable. In the second week of teaching, students only attend two hour classes in the morning and in the third week of teaching, students attend all two hour classes in the afternoon. Some classes need to be divided because the classrooms do not fit 30 students to respect the one meter rule (Pre-IB, IB1 BIOL/PSYC). Teachers will send out who should attend earlier session and who attend the later session (if class is divided).

The school is divided into several compartments (=hólf) and students have to use different entrances depending on where they attend classes (see map here).  The plan will be reviewed immediately in accordance with changes in the rules and recommendations from Directorate of Health and the Department of Civil Protection and Emergency Management.

Update Friday September 4th:  The school will run according to the initial three weeks plan next week (September 7th - 11th), mandatory attendance in the long classes 14:15 - 16:15 but online classes/assignments according to each teacher's instruction between 8:10 and 14:05.   Due to the news (200 people allowed in the same place), some amendments will be published next week.

Update Tuesday September 8th:

News from Steinn, the headmaster:

We are now in the third week of teaching and the setup will change in the fourth week. Students will attend classes in MH at all times until 12:35, except in physical education, which will continue in the same format as in recent weeks. If teachers announce another arrangement, it should be followed, e.g. in housekeeping, chess, choir, Swedish and Norwegian where all teaching takes place in the afternoon. In 5th week, students will attend school in the afternoon (13:05-16:15). Other hours in the timetable outside of those mentioned will be through the school's Learning Management System, ie. INNA.  As up to 200 people have been allowed in the same space (room), the school's quarantine compartments will be reviewed and all information will be accessible on the school's website under the COVID-19 button.It obligatory to go out of school facilities to get from one compartment to another. Students can use the library, Matgarður and Miðgarður as long as space allows. Those spaces are not for students to gather together or use between classes.I remind students to read carefully all the information posted on the website and information from teachers. Otherwise, I would like to reiterate that the instructions from authorities are under constant review and therefore circumstances can suddenly change.
