Applying to elementary school
In Lestijärvi the guardians do not need to file an application when the preschooler is moving up to elementary school. In Finland the pupils school will be determined by permanent address, so the pupil will go to the nearest elementary school. Guardians will receive a notice from the pupils school once the decision is made.
If you want your child´s school to be some other than the nearest school or you are moving to Lestijärvi with school aged children, please be in contact with the principal.
Lestijärvi elementary school is using internet system Wilma, which provides the guardians information on their child´s education and teaching arrangements. Guardians will receive Wilma usernames and passwords when they sign up their child to preschool or when the child starts elementary school. A guardian will make a personal account, where he/she can keep in contact with the school and manage the school matters of the child/children. Wilma makes possible for the guardian to notify the school of the child´s illness or check timetables, grades or deal with absences. Guardians can read the school´s briefings and answer the messages or questionnaires sent by the principle or teachers.
