FAQ

How is attendance registered in Inna?

Attendance is taken for each class. Special care needs to be taken to register who is in house at what time for tracing purposes should there be an infection. The following letters are used:

  • T if the student is present in TEAMS
  • M if the student is present in class at school
  • F if the student is absent (whether in TEAMS or at school)
  • X if the student is not required to attend or has turned in all assignments

If a student has an underlying health condition or for any other reason doesn´t feel able to attend school due to Covid-19, we ask that they please contact their headmaster or a student counsellor.

What should I do if someone doesn’t follow the disease prevention rules?

If someone doesn´t follow the rules the best thing to do is to start by pointing it out to them, often people simply forget and are grateful to be reminded. If they still do not follow the rules you can register it in the school´s feedback system by following this link: https://tskoli.is/abendingar . You can also contact the relevant headmaster. Their emails can be found here.

What should I do if I get diagnosed with Covid-19?

If you are diagnosed with Covid-19 you will get isolation instructions from the Covid-19 clinic. You inform the school about your diagnosis by sending an email to [email protected] You are also welcome to contact the school psychologist, your headmaster or teachers. You can find their contact information here.

What should I do if I need to go into quarantine?
