School after the Easter holidays

School operations will continue after the Easter holidays in the current mode:
Shift work continues in the usual way, i.e. the students are divided into groups that are taught face-to-face on two consecutive days. On Friday, all students are generally in non-location-based lessons. Holy Week is counted the same way as a school week.
This means that on Tuesday, 6.4. 2021 Group B will be in school and group A on Wednesday, 7.4. and Thursday, 8.4.21.

Supervision continues as in the last few weeks.

Corona Update

Today Federal Minister Univ.-Prof. Dr. Heinz Faßmann presented the plans for the final exams in the 2020/21 school year and provided information on other important topics. We would like to point out the following particularly relevant points:

- All oral partial exams as well as the presentation and discussion of “final papers” at the Matura again take place on a voluntary basis this school year.

- In the summer semester, there will be not more than one school assignment per subject in all types of schools [and levels].

- As in the previous school year 2019/20, advancement to the next higher school level is possible with one “Nicht genügend”, provided that this subject was positively assessed in the previous year. In the case of two or more “Nicht genügend”, the decision on advancement to the next school level lies with the class conference.

Enclosed you will find the package of measures for the graduating classes.

Classes after the semester break: “shift work” for everyone

Shift work with fixed days of face-to-face lessons and distance learning

Throughout Austria, the upcoming shifts will be staggered uniformly: The classes will be divided into two groups: The students in group A attend school on Monday and Tuesday. Group B students have face-to-face classes on Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, both groups will be taught in distance learning. In the following week, group B starts on Monday.

Self-tests on Monday and Wednesday before the start of classes

The self-tests are carried out on Monday by students in group A and on Wednesday by students in group B at the start of lessons in the school. Many students have already done the self-test at school and know the process. The testing in the school is supported by the teachers.

Information on self-tests and informed consent for 10-14 year olds

On the website www.bmbwf.gv.at/selbsttest you will find all central information about antigen self-tests in schools. You probably already know the instruction video and the one-page instructions for implementation. As usual, the declaration of consent is also available for download on the website mentioned (also in several languages). If you have not yet sent this to your school, please send it to the school no later than the morning of the first school day after the school break.

Supervision

For all children who need supervision, there will be learning supervision in small groups from 7:55 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Furthermore, children who do not have a suitable place to study at home can come to school and do their home schooling tasks in small groups. The school is open from 7:10 a.m. PCs, laptops and tablets will be available in the rooms on the 1st floor.
Please register your children for after school care at the following address: agi@tsn.at
Registrations are requested for the coming week. Short-term registrations are possible until 7.45 a.m. of the respective day.
If you need after school care, we ask you to register the day before by 6:00 p.m. to tagesbetreuung.agi@tsn.at. Please also included the time at which your child should be dismissed.

End of semester and supplementary lessons

Semester report:

Unfortunately, we cannot hand out the semester report as usual on the last day of school before the semester break.
In the semester break ordinance 2021 (C-SeVO 2021) it is regulated for the current school year that the semester report is to be handed over on one of the first two teaching days of the summer semester 2021, i.e. after the semester break.
From Friday, 5 February, pupils of the 4th grade or their legal guardians can pick up the semester report personally and individually at the secretariat, subject to compliance with the hygiene measures.

We hope that we will see all the students back at school after the semester break. Unfortunately, it has not yet been regulated in what form the lessons will be organized after the holidays. As soon as we have more detailed information, it will be announced here and by email.

From the start of the holiday, the pupils can view their grades via WebUntis.

Supplementary classes during the semester break:

The Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research will finance a support offer for children in the form of supplementary lessons during the upcoming semester break. The key points for this are:

You can register your child until 29 January, 2021 using the registration form below. Please send the completed form to r.knoflach@tsn.at.

Letter from the Minister for Education - 14. November 2020

INOFFICIAL TRANSLATION – Vienna, 14 November 2020

Dear parents and guardians,

The development of Covid-19 infections has led to the need for another hard lockdown in Austria. In order for the healthcare system to continue to function and to ensure that people in hospitals can be cared for, all areas of society must make a contribution: stores must be closed again, services such as a hairdresser's appointment must not be provided, and contacts in public places and in companies must be avoided by means of a large home office.

The school is also affected by these measures.

From Tuesday, November 17, 2020, there will be only limited operation with learning support at elementary schools, secondary schools, AHS lower grades and polytechnic schools. All children and adolescents who can be cared for at home and who do not have any special support needs should actually stay at home.

However, for all children who need care, there will be learning guidance in small groups. Even children who do not have a suitable place to learn at home can come to school and do their homeschooling in learning stations.

It is especially important to me that those children and young people who have difficulties with individual objects or need special support are well looked after. They will be actively encouraged by the teachers to come to school so that they do not build up a learning backlog and do not lose touch with the class.

From Monday, December 7th, normal school operations will then start again.

You can make an important contribution to ensuring that the lockdown has the desired effect: Please also reduce your private contacts during this time, and please leave your children at home during their free time if possible, even if this is difficult for everyone and is a particular burden for young people.

In the supplement you will find tips and information so that you can manage these three weeks of home schooling well. But one hint is especially important to me: If you or your
If the blanket falls on your child's head, it is best to let your child go back to school temporarily. One or two days are often a great relief.

All further information about home schooling and registration formalities for learning support or learning stations at the location can be obtained directly from your school.

I wish you and your family all the best in these difficult times!

Your

Prof. Dr. Heinz Faßmann
Federal Minister of Education, Science and Research
