Information about the corona virus - reguarding Kulturskolan

Here you will find updated information on how the situation with the coronavirus affects Upplands Väsby kulturskola.

Due to local general councils in Stockholm County 29 Oct – 13 dec 2020, Kulturskolan has decided to:

  • All activities for students of primary school age (up to grade 9) continue as before

The following additional adjustments will be made up to and including 18 december:

  • Distance education for all students of high school age (gymnasiet) and up
  • Canceled orchestra activities for high school students and adults
  • No audience will be invited to concerts scheduled for December. The concerts will instead be replaced with various digital solutions
  • Guardians and other adults are advised not to stay in Messingen
  • No physical meetings / conferences for the teachers

Otherwise, the same prompts apply as before:

  • Stay home if you have symptoms (both students and staff)
  • Students who show symptoms are kindly requested to go home
  • Wash hands before and after class
  • Keep distance
  • Teachers are aware of how to position themselves and the students in different rooms and teaching situations
  • Teachers disinfect surfaces and instruments in classrooms
  • Hand desinfection is available in all classrooms
  • Plastic screens are used in teaching where possible
  • Teachers are encouraged to keep their distance from colleagues and other staff at lunch and coffee breaks

We follow the guidelines of the municipality and the Public Health Authority and announce whether there will be changes.

To reduce crowding and the spread of infection, feel free to leave your child for lesson but do not stay in Messingen more than necessary.

Avoid crowding, if necessary wait outside Messingen.

All students, relatives and teachers who have respiratory symptoms (including mild colds) or fever are encouraged to stay at home, according to the recommendations of the Public Health Authority. Those who are ill should stay at home two days after the last symptoms.

Students who come to the lesson with obvious symptoms will be kindly asked to go home.

Wash your hands frequently, and especially before your lesson. Wash carefully with soap and warm water for at least 30 seconds.

We notify the parents concerned via sms and e-mail the same morning if a teacher becomes ill.

Canceled lessons are generally not compensated. If the teacher is ill for a longer period, we will do everything we can to find a substitute.

Students are guaranteed at least 26 lessons per academic year (musikmix 24 occasions, instrumentmix 20 occasions). If there are fewer lessons at the end of the spring term, we will compensate for this in some way.
