In the context of the closure of the school in March 2020, and of the rapid organisation of distance learning, the ECB charity EuroHope has played a key role in supporting students and teachers with appropriate IT equipment.
Between mid-April and end-June, more than 230 laptops have been distributed to students and teachers, both from primary and from secondary.
This operation would not have been possible without the incredible involvement and dedication of volunteers from EuroHope, who managed within few weeks to increase the stock of laptops available from 70 to more than 200.
Given the limited number of laptops originally available, the Parents Association launched surveys in order to identify who were the students in secondary and then in primary who most urgently needed a laptop. Once the most urgent cases identified, an email was sent to the whole school community and all students and teachers who asked for a laptop received one.
All laptops were distributed after a minimum donation of 175 euros for the first set of laptops available (Lenovo, Generation 1), and 200 euros for the remaining machines (Lenovo, Generation 2). In total, EuroHope has raised more than 50,000 euros which has been distributed to several charities in Europe fighting Covid-19.
In addition to this massive operation, the ESF Parents Association wanted to show solidarity with our neighbour schools (Ernst Reuter Schule 1 and 2). In this context, the Board of the PA has approved the donation on its behalf of 20 laptops to students at both schools, for a total amount of 3,500 euros. In addition, EuroHope has also offered an additional 20 laptops to ERS 1 and 2.
The ESF PA would like again to thank EuroHope for having supported the school community under these difficult circumstances. Thanks to this unique collaboration all requests received by the PA have now been satisfied. The PA and EuroHope will continue working together to provide students with IT material.

On 18 September, the Parents Association arranged its Annual Welcome Coffee, where new parents were invited to get to know to the school better, meet other parents, and to gather information about the school and extra services, as well practical information about the life in Frankfurt and Germany.
Many interested parents attended to the event and we believe everyone enjoyed themselves and left satisfied, though they had to hide their smiles behind their masks this year.

We are happy to announce that EuroKids services are planned to resume with the 2020-2021 new school year. The health and safety of the children remains our top priority and we will be introducing additional hygiene measures in light of current circumstances. Parents registered for EuroKids services will be contacted regarding specifics for their children.
Although EuroKids, as a childcare institution, is subject to looser hygiene regulations than schools we will be ensuring that our health and safety practices go over and above the statutory regulations and mirror that of the ESF as much as practicable.
We will be doing our best to ensure services resume as normally as possible for the children and stand prepared to react flexibly to any potential changes to state regulations and ESF guidelines.
Wishing you and your family a healthy start to the school year.
Your EuroKids Team.
