Distance learning in March


The government of Estonia has decided to send the students from grade 5 and upwards to distance learning from the 1st of March until the end of March due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. In Tartu International School it means that in March 2021 grade 1 to 4 students will attend school physically and grade 5 to 9 will learn from home. Kindergarten remains open as usual.

Grade 1-4 schedules will not change. Grade 5-9 will have a schedule that combines video lessons and independent work. Weekly schedule has been sent to all the parents via email.

About distance learning

All distance learning days start with opening Stuudium: all links to the video lessons and independent work instructions will be there under the homework section.

The parents can help the student by:

  • providing a suitable work place with internet connection, computer, camera and headphones if possible;
  • helping to follow the schedule (e.g. make the schedule visible so they can follow when the lesson starts, when the break ends etc);
  • ensure that the child is outside for at least 60 minutes per day;
  • lowering off-studies screen time.

Who to contact?

  • The first person to contact in case of problems with distance learning is the class teacher.
  • Questions about school laptops: educational technologist Elo-Kai Kurel (
  • Questions about the organization of studies: head of studies Maris Vohla (
  • If you are not sure who would answer your question, please contact principal Kristi Aria (

The schoolhouse is open and in case someone needs to pick up a laptop, textbooks or something else from school, please send an email to the principal and the school will arrange this.
