FAQ Covid-19 and school

The return to school on May 11th went well. Our primary and lower secondary students are in class. We obey the sanitary rules of the canton.

Classes for the high school students will be held according to the usual schedule online on the TEAMS platform in the Office 365 environment, which works for video conferencing and file work.

We do our best to meet your needs and those of your family. If you have any questions, please contact the school or contact your child's class teacher.


How to connect to the TEAMS platform

Students can log in with their identifiers to the Domaine Saint-Charles and to their class. If you forget your password, please write to Mrs Christèle Chapuis ([email protected]) who will reset it and send it by phone. Your child will then have to log in with the new password, change it and take note of it carefully. Without this sesame, he will not be able to work.

The teachers will be on line with them.

What can I do to make it easier for my child, who is easily distracted at home, to concentrate?

Where to set up to work?

Here are some tips that we advise to set up a space for remote learning:

1. Find the right place for your child to work. Is it alone in his/her room? Atthe kitchen table, closer to you?  Preferably in a quiet place.

2. Avoid sources of distraction (e.g. video games, social media).

3. Arrange his/her workspace to be as comfortable and functional as possible: back supported, feet firmly on the floor and if he/she is in front of a computer for a while make sure he/she has an angle of about 30 degrees in the bend of his elbows.

4. Be sure the space is well lit. It is important that your child works with adequate lighting. Too little light can tire the eyes and reduce their ability to concentrait.

How can we help our children organize their day?

Maintaining a regular schedule is key for children to maintain their progress in the course and reducce anxiety related to this challgneing time.  Keep up with school so studentts don't fall nehind. Daily planning allows you to "normalize" the situation and to structure everyone's day, to keep as much as possible the usual reference points. 

If you are working from home, talk to your child about how your are accommodating your change of work schedule.  Discuss importants meetings and schedules to encourage collaboration and focus in your child.

Breaks are essential for breathing: respect the breaks in the school schedule that already allow you to change your mind and do not leave your children on screens after school, or only for a limited time.
