Dear parents and guardians,
Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I hope you all had a restful summer with plenty of sunshine, relaxation and time with your families.
To our returning students and parents, welcome back! We're excited to see how you've grown and hear all about your summer break. We're also looking forward to working with you in your new classes and building on all the values we worked on last year.
To our new students and parents, welcome to IES Länna! As I've told many of you before, IES Länna is not a "regular" school. You and your child will have a special experience here and it will be challenging at times. We are, however, ready to support you with those challenges. What an exciting journey it will be!
Please note the following start and finish times for the first day of school:
MONDAY, AUGUST 19
Year 4: 8.15 to 13.50
Welcome from Mrs. Kelly on schoolyard at 8.15. Parents are welcome to stay for information from the mentors and leadership team until 10.00. Students will be dismissed at 13.50 so their mentors can escort them to the bus stop or to Junior Club. Junior Club is free and open to everyone in Years 4-5 during the first week of school. More information about how to register and pay has been/will be sent by administration.
Years 5-6: 9.00 to 14.00
Years 7-8: 9.30 to 14.15
Year 9: 10.00 to 14.30
All year groups will start on the schoolyard with a welcome from Mrs. Kelly and the school leadership.
TUESDAY, AUGUST 20 TO FRIDAY, AUGUST 23
Students will follow their normal schedules. Schedules will be handed out on the first day of school and will also be available via SchoolSoft.
As always, a member of the leadership team will be outside supervising the schoolyard from 7.45 each morning (8.15 on Mondays due to our later start that day). We love spending this time outside with the children and waving to the parents, so please use this as a guide to when you can drop your child off even before you receive his/her schedule.
With any questions, please contact Ms. Unander-Scharin at email@example.com or 08-20 90 15, or me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 076 852 0401.
Enjoy the last days of your summer holidays, and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
