Should school classes start later?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommended in August 2014 that middle and high schools should not commence before 8:30...

Proposal for new balanced timetable

Maternell: Monday - Friday from 9.00 to 14.00 Primary: Monday and Wednesday from from 9.00 to 16.30, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9.00 to 14.00. Secondary: Monday, Wednesday and Friday from from 9.00 to 16.30, Tuesday and Thursday from 9.00 to 14.00.

Low registration and transferrals out of European School Mamer

The rate of registration of new children to European school Lux II is so low that the school now wants to radically change the rules of registration, ‘forcing parents with kids in the DE, FR and EN sections to send their kids to Lux II, except in certain circumstances.’

Dear Parents,

Soon all our pupils and staff will be on vacation for a week. The start of the school year has been an intensive period and all are in well need of a break.

The number of cases of Covid-19 in Luxembourg is increasing. The schools, including European school Luxembourg II, are part of Luxembourg so of course we can observe this increase also within our school. Still we have so far not had many cases, even if every case is one too many. All the cases known to us have been infected outside school. Among the cases we have had at Secondary school several have been infected at events/parties where our students have been participating. I would therefore like to take this opportunity to remind you parents of your responsibility to have your children act with a sense of civic duty when it comes to limiting the spread of Covid-19 when they are not in school.

I receive many emails from parents, some criticizing measures taken (or not taken) and some praising what we do to decrease the risk of spreading Covid-19. Even if I might not be able to reply to all emails I want you to know that I carefully read all of them and I have great respect for the fact that there are different opinions on these matters. I have weekly meetings with the APEEEL2 focusing on Covid-19 situation and I do appreciate their engagement and constructive approach in this challenging situation for our school.

You will for sure receive more communication from us concerning school and Covid-19 situation, hopefully not until after the vacation though.

I hope you will all have a good vacation and opportunities to enjoy time together.

Take care and kind regards,

Per Frithiofson

Aim of the European Schools

Educated side by side, untroubled from infancy by divisive prejudices, acquainted with all that is great and good in the different cultures, it will be borne in upon them as they mature that they belong together. Without ceasing to look to their own lands with love and pride, they will become in mind Europeans, schooled and ready to complete and consolidate the work of their fathers before them, to bring into being a united and thriving Europe.

Marcel Decombis, Head of European School, Luxembourg between 1953 and 1960
