Restrictions in the city's education and childcare services

As should be common knowledge, schools and daycare centers have closed throughout Hesse as of today. But also in other facilities in the city, there are drastic restrictions. The city of Frankfurt has now issued an overview of the current changes (as of Monday, 16.03.2020). However, these are not to be considered final, as they are adjusted andäquat due to the very dynamic situation of the respective situation.

Kindertagesstätten und Kindertagespflege

The state of Hesse has ordered that from Monday, March 16, until the end of the Easter holidays on April 17, there will be no more childcare in crèches, kindergartens and after-school care. This applies to all providers and also to care in day families (Kindertagespflege). The only exceptions are children where both parents or a single parent are in the following:

- Health care, medical and nursing

- Emergency services, civil protection and fire brigade

.- Police and correctional sectors, including correctional and similar sectors

- Critical infrastructure (energy, water, wastewater, IT and telecommunications)

For a list of relevant occupations, see https://soziales.hessen.en/health/protection-against-infection/coronavirus-sars-cov-2/circumvention-with-corona-kita-and-children's-day-care-sites

All parents who belong to the professional groups mentioned are already asked to bring proof of their professional activity to the day-care centres and children's centres. You will receive separate information as soon as possible about the facilities where your child will be cared for in the next few days. Until then, they are asked to bring their child to the facility where they have previously been cared for.

Care cannot be provided for a child if they

- are ill

.

- has contact with infected persons

- has been in a risk area within the past 14 days.

Children returning from a risk area classified by the Robert Koch Institute must observe a 14-day quarantine before they can be looked after again. For an overview of risk areas, visit https://www.rki.de/DE/Content/InfAZ/N/Neuartiges_Coronavirus/Risikogebiete.html

To protect the elderly, the recommendation is to avoid having grandparents care for children.

More information is available at the facility or on the websites and Facebook pages of each daycare provider.

Schools and extended school care

The Hessian Ministry of Culture has ordered that from Monday, March 26, no regular classes will be held at all schools until the end of the Easter holidays on April 17. On Monday, students as well as teachers will be able to get their personal belongings and learning materials out of school, and from Tuesday, only emergency supervision in small groups will take place.

The written Abitur exams are to take place. In addition, several make-up dates will be offered so that all students can take their exams and graduate in the current 2019/2020 school year. More information on the conduct of the Baccalaureate is expected soon.

All field trips, student exchanges, class trips that were scheduled to take place by the end of the 2019/2020 school year will be cancelled. This includes all school trips and extracurricular events, regardless of whether the destination is classified as a risk area. The state of Hesse will cover the cancellation costs charged by the organizer.

Origin-language classes in Saturday schools that use school rooms on weekends will also not take place until April 17. The same applies to sports and other clubs that use rooms in schools for their offerings.
