Dear Parents,

In line with yesterday's government announcement that masks will be mandatory indoors, we have decided to reintroduce masks at school for the protection of our community. Safety is our number one priority at the British International School of Ljubljana.

The year groups and staff who require to wear masks are illustrated in the table below.

Mask guidance

The above mask guidance will continue to be followed from tomorrow and the remainder of this academic year next week, with the last day of school being Wednesday 1st July (pick up at 12 noon). Further health & safety updates will follow for the summer school. To see all guidance and Health advice please click on our page here.

In school, we continue to hold meetings online and avoid larger group gatherings. Alongside masks, we encourage the use of hand sanitisers and wipes upon entering classrooms, using toilets and cleaning surfaces before/after eating. Access to the building is suspended for all parents, unless prior appointments have been made and guidance followed.

Outside of school, our staff continue to follow health advice and avoid attending various types of public gatherings at this time. As professionals, we continue to keep the safety and wellbeing of everyone as a priority.

We look forward to celebrating International Day tomorrow, Friday 26th June. This year due to COVID-19, we have unfortunately removed workshops, food stalls and other events planned in association with this event, however we encourage students and staff to wear traditional dress or the colours of their country as this does not affect the safety measures in place.

Kind regards,

Paul Walton
