Per Frithiofson explains about COVID-19

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 the 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 the 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
