Valuables and mobile phones 

Mobile phones must be handed in to the office on arrival at school.

Other valuable items or money should also be taken to the office for security.

Absence due to illness

We ask parents to call the school in the morning if their child is sick. This way we do not have to worry about anything having happened to them on their way to school.


All other absences

Please inform the School Office in case of urgent dentist's or doctor's appointments.

Absence from school outside the school holidays can only be granted if the parents have permission from the Principal.



Public Transport to the school is good, as the school is close to Ryparken S-train station and Lyngbyvej which has many train and bus connections.
