All educational institutions in Denmark, including Ikast-Brande Gymnasium, have been closed as of Thursday, 12th of March until the 30th of March.
This means that students must stay at home as of Thursday 12th of March and until the school opens again.

All lessons are virtual during the period of closure. Students are expected to follow their timetable and attend lessons from home. Virtual classes will run via Microsoft Teams and Lectio. More info is being sent out to students Thursday the 12th of March 2020.
It is important that students go online as if they were at school and attend lessons from home on time – that is, as scheduled in Lectio.
We encourage all international students to stay in Denmark and to not travel back home during the school’s closure, in accordance with the Ministry of Health’s recommendations for international travel. Should students and their parents make the decision to travel home, please be aware that this is at the student’s own risk. ‘Red zones’ are currently in place worldwide, restricting all travel from these areas to Denmark and students may risk not being able to travel back to Denmark or to become quarantined upon return to Denmark. Students that stay on in our dormitories are highly encouraged to stay isolated in their rooms as much as possible during the 2-week closure of the school.
We are being updated regularly from the Ministry of Health and are taking all necessary precautions, as outlined by the Authorities. We encourage all students and parents to stay updated and to please uphold the Ministry’s guidelines to prevent COVID-19 from spreading further in Denmark.
