No regular lessons before end of school year in Poland

Traditional lessons at Polish schools will not be restored in Poland before the end of the school year on June 26, due to the coronavirus pandemic, whereas online education schemes remain active, Poland’s Education Minister Dariusz Piontkowski said on Monday.

During primary and high school final exams starting on June 8 and 16, there will be days off from online classes for those not taking part in the exams, the minister stated.

Pupils will not have to attend distance learning classes, and there will be an opportunity to benefit from consultations at schools, which will take place until the end of the school year. However, any classes in large groups will not be possible.

Full-time classes at schools were suspended in Poland on March 12. Compulsory distance learning classes were introduced by the Polish government from March 25. Some branches resumed operations, including kindergartens, psychological and pedagogical counselling centres, as well as lessons in 1st-3rd year of primary school classes.
