We advise that your family trips are scheduled during the school's holidays since lengthy absences at other times often affect school results. Guardians are responsible for making sure that school work is completed. Special assistance will not be provided by the school due to holidays. School work and possible changes in test dates must be requested will in advance.

Guardians must inform the school on the first day of the absence. A message can be left by phone to any teacher, Helmi-message or email to the teacher or homeroom teacher.

Helmi Agenda

The Finnish International School of Tampere uses the Helmi Agenda which is a web-based communication program between the home and school. Guardians log in with personal codes which are provided by the classroom teacher or homeroom teacher. If there is more than one child in the school, the account can be connected for siblings. If this is the case, please send the names and grades of your children to the school's Helmi representatives who will link all children to the youngest child's account.
