Sickness absences

Here you will find information on registering absence due to sickness. 

Please note that students do not need to call in sick. Sickness absences are registered in Inna.

Covid-19: It is important that students inform the school if an absence is due to COVID-19 by adding a comment to the sickness absence registration in Inna. This applies whether the absence is due to quarantine, confirmed infection or underlying conditions. See below for further information. 

The school may require confirmation of quarantine or isolation. Confirmation is available on heilsuvera.is. 

COVID-19

Absences can be registered the same day or a day in advance. 

Students who are absent due to COVID-19 register sickness absence in Inna in the same way as for other sickness but write a comment to explain the absence; whether it is due to quarantine or confirmed infection. We ask students who know the length of time they will be absent to add that information to the Inna comment.

The school requires this information to be able to provide students with the best possible service during their absence. The information is strictly confidential and can only be accessed by relevant members of school staff. 

If a student is placed in quarantine or isolation and needs a confirmation to show the school, it can be found on heilsuvera.is.
