Upper secondary schools and adult education

Lund Municipality is monitoring the developments and situation associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. We have collected information here, based on the current situation, that applies to high schools and adult education.

Partial remote education at Lund's municipal upper secondary schools from 26 November

Starting Thursday 26 November, Lund municipality's upper secondary schools will change and partly conduct their teaching remotely. This change currently applies until February 26, 2021. It will be evaluated continuously. This is due to an increase in transmission of covid-19 in Skåne, and to reduce crowding on school premises and in public transportation.

The conditions look different at our upper secondary schools. To ensure that the mix of teaching on school premises and remote teaching can work as well as possible, the schools will have the opportunity to decide for themselves how this can be applied and implemented in their respective school.  

Student health services will continue to be available. The planning will consider students who need support, practical elements, and examinations.

The school lunch for students who are taught remotely will not be offered as there is too little time left until the Christmas holidays.

The municipal adult education center, the native language center, and the international elementary school

The municipal adult education center (Komvux) will run more of its courses remotely starting 23 November. Depending on the structure of the course and the needs of students it will be determined what parts of the course can be done on site.

Native language teaching for upper secondary school students will be conducted remotely, however, for remaining students the native language teaching will continue as usual on school premises.

The international elementary school (ISLK) will continue teaching on school premises as usual.

What do you need to think about as a student?

  • Despite all the preventative measures put in place to avoid crowding, it is important that you continue to follow the general advice and restrictions both when studying remotely or on school premises.

  • Keep a distance from others, in the schoolyard, the canteen, and on all school premises where possible.

  • During breaks, stay outdoors as much as possible.

  • Wash your hands often and thoroughly with soap and water.

  • You can use hand sanitizer if you do not have access to soap and water.

  • Try to avoid touching your face or eyes. Cough into your elbow.

  • Stay home if you are unwell and displaying symptoms.

  • If you have become unwell during the day, go home.

What does the school do?

Each school takes several measures to reduce the risk of transmission. As each schools' premises look different, preventive measures can vary between schools. These include cleaning and measures to increase the flow of people in the canteen and other places where crowding can occur. There are good opportunities for washing hands with access to soap and water and, if necessary, hand sanitizer.

The schools have put in place preventive measures by offering opportunities for students to pick up their meals and eat them in a place other than the canteen, temporary tents for food serving to reduce crowding in the canteen, extended opening hours, dialogue with Skånetrafiken to implement measures to reduce crowding in public transportation, as well as efforts to increase the number of available premises.

Travel to and from school

To reduce the transmission of covid-19 in public transportation, the recommendation is to avoid rush hour traffic. The possibilities for this can vary depending on where you live.

We encourage everyone who can to ride their bike, their moped or walk to school, travel by car or ride with the family to relieve public transportation. We will also open schools earlier in the morning so students can catch an earlier bus or train if possible.

Absence

Absence and sick leave are reported as usual in Skola24.
