Safe on-site education at ESH - September 2021

Our objective is to provide a safe and hygienic environment at ESH to protect our staff and students from infection by the Coronavirus. Please take the time to familiarise yourself with our school updates. Our goal is to provide the best educational experience for your children under the current restrictions and regulations. When in doubt about symptoms, please get tested by making an appointment with the GGD by calling 0800-1202.

Update from September 20th
The whole class does not need to quarantine if there’s one (Covid-19) positive case. “Close contacts” may be required to self-isolate. However, with multiple infected children, the GGD may advise the whole class to quarantine. ESH will always follow their expert advice. 

From Saturday, September 25th

  1. The 1,5m distance rule will not be in effect, no face masks expected.
  2. Parents may come onto the school property, and into the building / classrooms (with invitations or specific purpose).
  3. Non-immunised staff members are requested to self-test twice a week.
  4. Same basic rules apply if presenting Covid-19 symptoms: stay at home and get tested.

Travelling? Please check - Quarantine rules may apply:

Travel restrictions have been lifted for international travel. Vaccinated travellers will no longer be required to quarantine on arrival. If you are travelling from the Netherlands to another country, always consult the travel advice for your destination first. For a trip within the European Union, you need a COVID Certificate. You can get a COVID Certificate if you’re fully vaccinated or can prove that you’ve had COVID-19.

We await information from the PO-Raad about travel quarantine expectations for un-vaccinated primary aged children.
ESH primary children in travel quarantine will not receive distance education, but may receive work assignments after alignment with their teachers. ESH reserves the right to send students home if there is uncertainty and a lack of clarity about travel quarantine. Parents will be called by the school.

There are some individual exceptions to the travel quarantine rule. Please contact the school ( to discuss your situation to avoid confusion. Click here for (Dutch) information on exceptions to travel related quarantine.

Children: The future is in your hands. Share your ideas!

Prime Minister Rutte specifically addressed young people in the press conference. "We see that most of you stick to the rules. It is partly thanks to you that there are fewer people in the hospital". He combines the compliment with a call to youth. “How will you maintain social distance in the future? Come with ideas, come with criticism - preferably constructive. I also want to say to parents and local politicians: start serious conversations with the adults of the future”.
