Instructions for distance learning updated as of January 26, 2022 

When a student is absent from school due to coronavirus, the following absence procedures will be adopted in the future. When absent, the student may perform tasks sent by the teacher through Wilma, and after returning to school, the student's potential need for support will be assessed. 

If a student falls ill with COVID-19 or is exposed to COVID-19 at home, they should stay at home for at least five (5) days, compliant with the instructions of the National Institute for Health and Welfare (THL). During the student's absence from school, they are not entitled to distance learning or a quarantine bag. Nor is the guardian entitled to infectious disease allowance, because, as a general rule, an official decision by an infectious diseases authority will no longer be made on isolation or quarantine. If the exposed student has no symptoms, they can go to school.

Other instructions given earlier—related to, among others, wearing face masks and general hygiene instructions—as well as pol18§ decisions on distance learning will remain in force.
