Managebac

Managebac is our official online learning and communication tool for teachers, students and parents. It includes curriculum, student progress and internal communications.

Log in to Managebac

You can log on to Managebac using the email(s) you have given to the school as your contact emails. Usually, a message will be sent by the system helping you to log on for the first time.

Once you have logged on you can then check and edit your details and take a look at any reports which have been published for your child.

Change of contact information

Any address/e-mail/telephone changes during the term should be changed on your parent account in OpenApply. You must also send an email to:
islk@lund.se

Remember, in Sweden, it is the municipality where you live that pay for your child’s school fee. If you chose to live in a different municipality than Lund, they may not agree to pay the full fee for international schooling. Hence, you need to check before you chose your housing if they agree or not or you may lose the place for your child at ISLK.

Skola 24 - Attendance Registration System

We are using a system called Skola24 which is web-based.

Log in to Skola24
As part of our safeguarding procedure, we require that all notifications are made no later than 8.00 a.m. on the day that your child is sick or absent. You can only report whole day absences. In the case of planned visits to the doctor, dentist or similar shorter absences, you must provide your child with a note for the teacher/mentor.

Call in to report sick or absent child.
Phone: 0515-86928

The instructions are in English and you will need to use your child's Swedish personal number in order to be able to report the absence.

Report to the Administration

If you do not yet have a Swedish personal number, we ask that you email us or call the school office.
Email: islk@lund.se
Phone: 046-359 45 42

As part of our safeguarding procedure, we require that all notifications are made no later than 8.30 a.m. on the day that your child is sick or absent.

New families, please make sure that the school office gets the children's personal numbers as quickly as possible.

Student Planned Absences

Parents are requested not to remove their child from school unnecessarily. Lengthy absences will affect academic progress and grades. It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent to ensure that missed work is completed. Special work will not be provided by teachers.

A "Leave of Absence" must be filled out even for single day absences. The completed form is to be submitted to the class teacher/mentor one week in advance. Two days off may be granted by the class teacher/mentor. Absences of more than two days must be approved by the Principal who should receive the notice at least one week in advance.

Application for planned leave of absence during term

All our students are served one warm meal a day in the canteen. The lunch menu is updated weekly (in Swedish).

Students from PYP3-MYP5 can apply for mother tongue classes. The forms can be found in the school reception. The classes take place once a week for forty minutes and is paid for by ISLK.

About the Mother Tongue Center

The mother tongue center offers mother tongue support and mother tongue education to children and adolescents from families where at least one of the parents has a mother tongue other than Swedish and this language is used in the home.

For these students, the mother tongue is a foundation for learning and is an important link between their lives and the school. In addition, it is a tool that can be used in knowledge acquisition. The mother tongue is also of great importance to the identity and self-esteem of these students.

You can only take one language as mother tongue, so if you speak two languages at home (not including English), you will have to choose between the two.

Requirements

The minimum requirement for a group to start is five students. In some cases, the students will be grouped with other students from another school and the lesson may take place at the other school. In cases of illness, it is the parent's responsibility to inform the mother tongue teacher that the student will not attend school.

When to apply

If your child wants to participate in Mother tongue classes you as a guardian must report this to the admin office.
Email: islk@lund.se

Deadline for applications before the autumn term is to be submitted before May 1st, and to apply for the spring term you have to submit the documentation before December 1st. You can find the application form in the Reception or here on the website. Do not forget to submit the documents in good time.

If you are applying for EYP or ASP you will need to submit the form Income of Statement since these programmes are fee-based and the fee is paid by the family according to the family income.

You have to apply to ASP two weeks in advance since it is a two weeks notification period for any changes in the schedule.

Do not forget to notify the school office if you have changed address, phone number or similar.
