Congratulations to students and staff

After almost a month back at school I would like to say congratulations to the students and staff for a brilliant start to the school year. As I walk around the school each day I couldn't be more proud of the excellent work environment around the school, and the hard work and focus in the lessons. Hard work pays off! The SPTs were at the start of the week, and the feedback from students and staff has been positive to the new format we had to do this year, I would like to thank everyone for adapting well to this.

As we say goodbye to the summer warmth, I'd like to remind students to bring in appropriate clothing for both colder and wetter autumn weather. 

Keep working hard in the classrooms and at home and I look forward to seeing you around the school.

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students

We are just over a week away from the school start, and we are very excited to start the new School Year here at Internationella Engelska Skolan Umeå.

An email has been sent to all parents with a preliminary schedule for your child's class, there are always one or two minor changes to the schedules in the first few days, and the most up to date schedules will always be on SchoolSoft. If your child is new to the school, you will get a new login to SchoolSoft once school has started.

Your mentors will contact you during week 33 or at the start of week 34, please share any important information with them during these phone calls that might be helpful for staff to know.

The main communication channel for the school to parents is via SchoolSoft, a lot of important dates can be found there, and is always updated, so please regularly check in to SchoolSoft to keep updated. One very important date for your diary is the SPTs (Utvecklingssamtal) which will be on Monday 7th September 2020 and will be conducted differently this year. Your child will attend school for their meeting time (20 minutes) and parents/guardians will join the meeting via Google Hangout or via Telephone. There will be a limited number of appointments also available on Tuesday 8th September from 15:30-16:30.
