Suspension of on-site classes and activities from 8 to 21 February 2021

On 4 February 2021, the Minister of Education, Children and Youth, Claude Meisch, announced the suspension of on-site classes and activities in the educational and school sector from 8 February until 21 February, the end of the school holiday.

Exceptions are the Graduating classes ("Première"), where on-site classes are maintained.

Distance learning, which worked well at the beginning of January thanks to the commitment of teachers and parents, will resume on 8 February. Parents of children aged 4 to 13 will once again be able to apply for leave for family reasons ("congé pour raisons familiales").

Music lessons will also be given remotely.

The Minister made a strong appeal to families and young people: distance learning can only be effective if social contacts outside school are reduced to a bare minimum. For this reason, sports clubs will not offer indoor activities to children and young people during this period.
