Early Departure of IB DP Students – Suspension of After-School Activities on Psychico Campus

Dear Parents / Dear Colleagues,

Today, Monday, March 9, 2020, the National Public Health Organization (EODY) informed us that a parent of a student in the IB Diploma Programme (IB DP) is now one of the confirmed cases of coronavirus.

From that moment, for precautionary purposes, IB DP students:

  1. remained isolated from other students by not being permitted to exit their respective classrooms during break;
  2. departed from school before the end of the normal school day. Parents were notified to come and collect their children by private means.

Students in the other school units continued to go to classes and the school day concluded as normal. School buses departed at 16:00, without any IB DP students boarding.

We have already notified EODY in writing about the close relationship of the Psychico campus with that of Kantza. 

We await the joint decision of the relevant Ministries to proceed.  As soon as we receive word, we will inform you.

Also, please be informed that as a precautionary measure and until further notice, all after-school activities and classes on the Psychico campus of the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation (Special Programs, Adult Education Programs, Sports-Exercise Programs, Varsity Team Practices, SAKA teams) are suspended.

Yours truly,


Apostolos Athanasopoulos
Co-Director of Athens College
Coordinator of the HAEF School Units
