Use of school premises by Espoo residents
Use of school premises by Espoo residents as of October 2020:
Espoo’s school premises can still be used by Espoo residents. However, it is important that you follow the general instructions on safe distances, hand hygiene and possible restrictions on gatherings. If you have booked a space, please be prepared to have your event cancelled at short notice if the coronavirus situation changes and requires us to suspend the use of premises.
The person who books a space must ensure that the number of participants is not too high, so as not to compromise safe distances. As a general rule, you should only use half of the maximum capacity of the space. Event organisers must provide hand sanitiser for the participants or ask them to wash their hands when they arrive. In addition, they must clean the space extremely well after the event and leave it as they found it. The person who makes a booking agrees to follow the terms and conditions of the use of premises, and the event must always be attended by a responsible person who is familiar with said terms and conditions.
Time slots in school premises are applied for through the resource booking system:
Use of classrooms, auditoriums, dining halls and entrance halls at schools
These premises are available for Espoo residents to use outside school hours, basic education afternoon activities and other activities of the City of Espoo.
The use of premises by Espoo residents can be either supervised or self-supervised. During supervised use, a supervisor or a caretaker must be present. During self-supervised use, the user is able to access the school premises with their own keys and is responsible for certain duties related to supervision and cleaning.
