On March 17th, Umeå kommun agreed to follow the Swedish government’s recommendation that all gymnasium and adult education should be conducted remotely. Here we provide information about how this will be implemented at the gymnasium school.
It is our intention that the provision of education shall continue as before, although this will now take place in a slightly different way. We appreciate that this raises many questions, but we will do our best to keep you informed – primarily via Lärum but also via the school’s website.
We would like to extend a big thank-you to students and parents/guardians for all your work during the past week! Next week, we will continue with remote tuition in accordance with the existing timetable. If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact your mentor or the teacher responsible.
Tuition in accordance with the timetable
As far as is possible, remote tuition will follow the existing timetable. Students will receive all the information necessary for their courses from the teacher responsible via the relevant course room. If you cannot find the information about your course in Lärum, contact the teacher responsible by email (or however you usually communicate).
Regardless of the circumstances, we want all students to be able to continue their studies as well as is possible. It is of great importance that you participate in all tuition and continue to take your responsibility seriously.
We also appeal to parents/guardians to help your children through this process, so that the tuition can continue as smoothly as possible.
Those students who live in Umeå kommun and who attend one of the municipal gymnasium schools Dragonskolan, Forslundagymnasiet, Maja Beskowgymnasiet or Midgårdsskolan have the opportunity to collect a school lunch from selected local primary or gymnasium schools.

We ask both students and parents/guardians to ensure they remain updated by following the information we publish on Lärum. If you should have any questions concerning this transition (or anything else), you are of course welcome to contact us!
Following Umeå kommun’s decision to follow the Swedish government’s recommendation that all gymnasium education shall be conducted remotely, we and our staff are now working on a plan to implement this. Our provision of education shall continue, although in a slightly different way. We appreciate that this raises many questions for both students and parents/guardians, but we will do our best to keep you informed about how this work is progressing. We will do this primarily via this channel – i.e. Lärum.
