Educational services' preparedness for the coronavirus

On this site, you will find details of the policies and measures that have been introduced for schools in Jyväskylä to prevent the spread of coronavirus. They will shape how our local schools operate in the 2020/21 academic year. The site will be updated as new information becomes available.

General instructions

NEW 18 May 2020 Finnish National Agency for Education guidance on schools re-opening. Finland’s National Agency for Education has recommended that education providers make the necessary arrangements to allow pupils who cannot physically attend school due to a family member’s medical condition to access learning.

Unfortunately, the Open Day for Year 1 (eppuluokka) parents will not go ahead this year on school premises due to the exceptional circumstances. Your local school will be in touch with you directly regarding alternative arrangements. Guardians will receive instructions through Wilma-system.

Pupil care services

Our student welfare advisors and psychologists can be contacted by telephone Monday to Friday between 12:00 and 13:00. Please note that we will endeavour to respond to calls at other times too. The joint pupil care service for pre-school, basic education and secondary school pupils is available on 014 266 1803. The lines are open Monday to Friday, 08:00–16:00.
