I hope you are enjoying your summer holiday with many fun activities! Even though the holiday hasn’t ended, I would like to wish students and guardians a warm welcome to the academic year of 2015-2016. I am extra exited to welcome all our new students and guardians to IES Krokslätt, you find our school at Ebbe Lieberathsgatan 19. Tram stop: Varbergsgatan.
The first three days are dedicated to uniting students and their fellow classmates within the class and year level. It is imperative that the students get to know their new friends as soon as possible in order for all students to experience a safe and secure start at IES Krokslätt.
All students in year level 6 at IES Krokslätt need to remember to bring 100 kronor for deposit of padlocks. This money will be handed back to the student when they return their padlock at the end of year 6 in June 2016.
School starts Monday the 24th of August at IES Krokslätt. Mentors from each class will greet their students on the school yard and escort them safely to their class rooms. Please note times listed below. The first day of school is short which means students will not be offered lunch, except for students attending Junior club and Fritids.

From Thursday the 27th of August students will follow their ordinary school schedule (Please log on to SchoolSoft for schedule).
I would like to take this opportunity to inform you of one of our important changes concerning the new academic year. The school now has a manned reception. You find the entrance on the side of the school building facing in the direction of Korsvägen.
All guardians and visitors must sign up on arrival at the reception. All students that arrive late for school must also sign in at the reception.
This new policy is a step to strengthen the security of all students attending our school.
During this autumn we invite guardians to parental meetings where guardians have the opportunity to meet mentors and member from the school management. We will also during this autumn offer guardians other important events such as; SchoolSoft training and Development talks. You will find further events concerning the calendar for this academic year on SchoolSoft, the IES Krokslätt website and through the weekly newsletter from your child’s mentor.
I really look forward to seeing you all and start a new and exciting school year together.
Mr Carl Waddington
Principal IES Krokslätt
