If a student is going to be late or absent at a certain day e.g. due to a doctor/dentist appointment or sickness, parents/guardians must notify the school by 8:30 via ManageBac under the attendance excusal tab. Please inform the office if student is absent due to any epidemic disease.

Late Arrivals

Students who arrive late at school have to report to the office first before entering their class. Failure to do so might result in being marked as absent.

Leaving school premises during school hours

Students are allowed to leave the school grounds for planned appointments with the written notices from parents.  Parents must notify the school via ManageBac under the attendance excusal tab.

School Materials

In Norway, all students are provided with the minimum necessary equipment for lessons. This includes all stationary and IT equipment. 1st grade students are provided with a school bag by Statens vegvesen (the state road authority).

Dress code

One of the values of the school is respect and sensitivity to other cultures. This should influence the way students dress. Deliberately torn clothing, visible underwear, see through or display of offensive images or words are not allowed. If jewellery is worn it should be minimal, not offensive. We encourage student do not bring objects of value to school. The school is not responsible for lost personal property. Students that do not dress properly will be asked to change or cover unacceptable clothing.

Outdoor clothes

In autumn and spring rain pants, rain jacket with hood or rain hat, and rain boots are important for outdoor play. In the winter students need good warm winter wear that allows them to be outside when it is -20 degrees Celsius. Students must be prepared for all weather.  

Inside Shoes and Physical Education clothing

Inside shoes must be worn at all times during the school day. It is expected that students change their clothes for Physical Education (PE) lessons. Students must bring appropriate clothing and shoes for these lessons each week.

Lunches / Snacks / Water bottle/Inside shoes


  • Students bring their own lunches from home.
  • Students should bring an afternoon snack (fruit/vegetable).
  • Students need a water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the school day. Students should not expect to be given permission to go to leave the classroom to get a drink of water during lesson time.
  • Sweet drinks or any other drinks with added sugar or sweetener are strongly discouraged.
  • All sodas (brus) and energy drinks which contain caffeine are forbidden.
