Information about opening of the school year 2023/2024

Dear parents and students,

the ceremonial opening of the school year will take place in the school yard on Monday, September 4, 2023, starting at 8:00 a.m.

The students from 2nd grade to 9th grade will arrive to school no later than 7:50 a.m. and they will go to their classes. Our assistants will take care of the students of these grades who are new to our school at the school entrance, and will lead them to their classes.

The first-grade students and their parents/guardians will come to the entrance, where the students will be picked up by their teachers, and the parents/ guardians can go to the school yard. Please, arrive in advance, so that the opening ceremony can start at 8:00 a.m.

The list of the first-grade students and their division into the first-grade classes will be placed on the main school door entrance. After the opening ceremony in the schoolyard, the first-grade students and their parents/companions will go to the classrooms.  There, the main important introductory information will be shared (we expect to finish around 10:00 a.m.).

In case of bad weather, the start will take place in individual classes.
