Schools and Educational Facilities
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do we get exemption from compulsory school attendance for our school-age children?
School-age children’s parents or guardians may apply in writing to the school principal for postponement of compulsory school attendance. The application must be submitted together with recommendations from the child’s general practitioner or pediatrician and from the relevant educational counselling and protection office. These recommendations will not be required at the time of a child’s enrolment in the first year of school as long as the emergency situation persists, but the parent or guardian must subsequently supply them within four weeks at the most after the exceptional interruption of school teaching ends.
Do we have to pay for our child’s pre-school or school club membership during this emergency situation?
The City of Košice has decided that for the schools and educational facilities within its management, from 30th March until further notice during this period of exceptional interruption of school teaching and operation, parents and guardians of pre-school and school-age children are not required to pay contributions towards their children’s membership or the operation of pre-school, school club or free-time facilities. We are aware that many families are facing financial hardship at this time, and we want to relieve some of the burden in this way.
