Many families will travel in and outside of Hungary during Winter Break (December 20-January 7). For an added health and safety precaution, we will teach online the first week of school after the break, January 10-14, then return to campus face-to-face on January 17.
We are unsure what travel restrictions will be put in place over the next several weeks, whether from increased COVID-19 infections or the impact the Omicron variant might have. We will follow the 10-day quarantine guideline. If students are back in Pápa the last day of break (January 7), then they can return to campus on Monday, January 17th.
While some families might not leave Hungary, many will travel throughout the country (Budapest, etc.), so this additional safety measure can only help.
I have spoken with board members, base leadership, and many parents who support this decision as an added health and safety precaution. If you plan to travel during the break, please have your children back in Pápa by January 7 to prevent any disruption to learning or the classroom.
If you have any questions about that week of distance learning, please contact your child’s teacher.
