SPT Meetings and Team Kista Talk

SPT Meetings and Team Kista Talk

Dear all,

This week it is time for the SPT Meetings, which will take place over the phone because of the current situation. Please remember to be available at the time of your meeting together with your child so that there can be a valuable conversation about your child's progress in school. Your children should be able to explain themselves what they have been doing in different subjects and at the end of this meeting it is very important that you have set some goals for improvement together with your child.

The school will continue to be open as normal until we receive other instructions from the government. This week's Team Kista Talk is about Wellness and you can find it here!

 

Your Principal.

Team Kista Talk and advice on how to talk to children about the current situation

Team Kista Talk and advice on how to talk to children about the current situation

Dear all,

We are fully aware that we live in uncertain times and that may people, adults as well as children are worried about the situation. We at the school see it as our mission to keep calm and of course listen to our students and parents concerns at the same time as we have to follow the directives from national guidelines and our government.

If you are a parent and you are interested in a few tips on how to talk to your child about the situation and the virus, please follow this link and you will find some advice from the goverment webpage for crisis information.

As I said, at the school, we try to keep things as normal as possible so here is the Team Kista Talk of the week. It is about independence in the learning process.

Sincerely,

Mikael Ö. Huhta

Team Kista Talk and information to students regarding the Corona virus

Team Kista Talk and information to students regarding the Corona virus

Dear all,

I think we are all currently in a state of uncertainty and worry in regards to the Corona virus and what will happen. It is therefore important the we, the adults lead by example and take the measures we believe are necessary to make sure our children are as safe as possible without causing the children too much stress. In the beginning of February, we held assemblies for all year groups where we discussed and presented facts about the virus from scientific sources. We of course also gave sanitary instructions in regards to keeping yourself as safe as possible, these were also shared again last week. Below you can see the instructions we gave, they are the same as directed by the Swedish National agencies:

 

We have also made sure our Team Kista Talk this week follows the same theme of making sure we are careful in how we act and what information we trust to make sure sensible decisions are made, you can find the video here!

 

Sincerely,

Mikael Ö. Huhta

The Corona Virus and Team Kista Talk

The Corona Virus and Team Kista Talk

Dear all,

Welcome back to school! Here you can view this week's Team Kista Talk on Dedication. Below you can find information on how the school wishes students, parents and staff deal with the risks of the corona virus.

 

The corona virus has spread to many countries in and outside Europe over the past week, while students and staff may have visited places where infection was detected during the sports break.


Our advice matches the current advice from the public health authority (Folkhälsomyndigheten). Folkhälsomyndigheten urged those who have visited areas where the infection has been found to be aware of symptoms such as coughing, breathing difficulties or fever. If these symptoms show or if you suspect symptoms contact the healthcare advice service (Vårdguiden) 1177 directly for advice.

It is important that everyone who is exposed to corona virus contact the health services for advice even if they feel healthy. When in doubt, we recommend that you always contact the healthcare services.

However, those who have been in areas where infection is present but feel perfectly healthy should go to school as usual, but must keep an eye out for symptoms and contact the healthcare services if necessary, as above.

If case of illness, report the sickness to the school and stay at home according to the instructions of the healthcare services.

We understand that many are concerned and we assure you that the safety and health of our students is our top priority. We are following the authorities' recommendations closely and will act promptly if there is reason to introduce stricter routines or update this advice.

Your Principal,
