Here you will find current information on the Covid 19 pandemic

09/30/2020 – Attention: All documents are at the bottom of the file list.

09/30/2020 – The letter of September 30, 2020 was sent to all parents and legal guardians of the Steinhausen School. We thank the parents and legal guardians for sharing the restrictions at the Steinhausen School around COVID-19. After the autumn break, we will start with the same guidelines and principles that were valid up to now in the current school year.

29.09.2020 – The German-speaking Swiss primary school authorities conference, in cooperation with the Federal Office of Public Health (BAG), has published guidance on school attendance by children and young people. The orientation aids and flow charts are valid in all German-speaking cantons. They differ for cycles 1/2 and cycle 3. Please note the enclosures.

The BAG published the new list of countries with an increased risk of infection with effect from September 28, 2020. A 10-day quarantine must be followed when returning from these countries. The following link takes you to the FOPH website:änger-fuer-reisen/quarantaene-einreisen.html

A letter will be sent to all parents and legal guardians before the autumn holidays with an outlook for the period from autumn to the Christmas holidays or sports holidays.

September 3rd, 2020 – We have updated the information on face-to-face teaching for parents in the school year 20/21. Note the version created under the documents listed.

Information on current and upcoming events of the Steinhausen School according to the agreements of the municipal schools:

Parents ‘evenings: Parents’ evenings take place in compliance with hygiene measures. If this is done in the classroom, parents generally wear masks, unless clearances can be maintained.

Parent visit days take place, but only with prior notification of the parents and with a mask (observe distance rules and hygiene). At the Steinhausen School we do this as follows:

Parents visit: only after registration (the class teachers will inform you how the registration can be done)
No official school attendance day on a certain date: In principle, all school days are possible (the class teacher can make restrictions due to absences or unfavorable dates)
Only parents take part in the visiting days
Frequency of visits by parents: maximum once a month, visits are voluntary
Parents always wear masks in the school building (bring parents)
It is important to the Steinhausen School that, despite visits from parents, the work of the teachers and the school run without major restrictions

National Future Day (November 12th, 2020): Will probably take place. It will probably be difficult to find enough places for all students. Website:  

Outlook for the sports week and ski camps: We generally want to hold a sports week and ski camps. By the autumn holidays 2020 we will make various clarifications for the ski camps as to which restrictions must be observed (protection concepts for accommodation, restrictions on managers, capacities, etc.).

Seniors in the classroom: Will take place again from September 2020. Seniors should decide for themselves whether they want to return to school. The same applies here: keep your distance.

Foreign language exchange: If we want to do it in principle, programs and settings may have to be adjusted so that they are COVID-19 compatible. The needs of the partner school must also be taken into account.

Meeting of classes from other schools: Yes, it is possible. Mutually agree protective measures.

Website of the canton of Zug: With the letter to start school we informed the parents about quarantine measures, including when entering from your risk country. We ask you to observe the currently applicable federal and canton of Zug regulations. Website Canton Zug on Corona:

Räbenliechtliumzug / Samichlaus moving in: The Steinhausen School does not organize both events itself. The implementation is being clarified.

August 19, 2020 – The Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) has published a new list of risk countries, which will be valid from August 20, 2020. The website also describes the procedure after entry from a risk country. The following link leads to the FOPH website:
