This Monday is back to school day for all children aged between 3 and 11 in Luxembourg.

The reopening of nursery and primary schools this Monday 25 May is the last stage in Luxembourgish pupils' return to their classrooms. Here's all you need to know.


Following the lead of older students, alternating timetables have been set so as to avoid contagion. Classes and supervised study sessions - when pupils do not have lessons in the new timetables - will be between 8am and 1pm.

Student supervision will start ten minutes before classes commence. From 8 June onwards, supervision for children whose parents are key workers will be available from 7am onwards.

All teachers will be wearing masks.


Only five children will be allowed to a group so as to reduce the spread of the virus.

All toys will be cleaned regularly, and groups themselves will be kept separate to avoid further contagion. Masks are forbidden for children under the age of two and strongly discouraged for those under six years old.

Parents who continue to take care of their children after Monday can ask for family leave, which will be subject to conditions such as the age of the child and the capacity of institutions.


The "maisons relais" will open their doors to childcare once more. From 25 May onwards, childcare will be available to groups A and B from 1pm to 6pm.

In Roeser, efforts have been made to meet children inside and parents outside in a way that best ensures everyone's safety. This video explains how the system will work in the various buildings:
