Current closure extended
Today, April 3rd 2020, the Minister of Health in Iceland, announced a decision to extend the current closure of upper secondary schools and university buildings to May 4th. This means that our school buildings will be closed until at least the 4th of May.
In light of this situation, it has been decided to complete all courses that we can remotely, including all general subjects (e.g. Icelandic, Math, English etc.), computer courses and drawing courses. We are also working on solutions for the vocational courses and will provide more information on how we plan to complete them in the first week after Easter.
You have done really well in this difficult situation. This is not easy for anyone of us and requires perseverance and endurance. It is good for all of us that Easter holiday is ahead and I encourage you to take good care of yourselves and your loved ones. The Easter holiday (April 4th – April 14th) can be a good chance to rest but it is also important to make good use of it if you are behind on project assignments. Now is a good opportunity to catch up.
It is important that you know that we have your interest at heart and I am sure that we will succeed in completing the semester together even if it is in an unconventional way. It is quite obvious that the graduation will not be done in the traditional way (a big ceremony in a large hall), but we will find a solution that will suit the situation in society at that time. To those that are registered for graduation this spring: we will make a special effort in order for you to be able to complete your courses and graduate on time.
Finally, I would like to remind you of the support services that are available at our school and I encourage both you and your parents/guardians not to hesitate to contact us if you have questions. You will find information on counselling, psychology services, the school’s office etc. at tskoli.is.
Have a good Easter holiday! Hildur principal
