In Switzerland due to US Covid school closure

Hi Everyone,
I am Swiss, living in California, but will be here for the next 4-10 months so my kids can go to school.
Just wanted to introduce myself.
We'll be in Winterthur.
If anyone else is in the same boat, let me know.
This is the first time my kids will go to school here - they speak Swiss German so I think it won't be too much of a challenge.
The cold weather will be a challenge for my sunny-weather spoiled kids for sure...
Doris

Re: In Switzerland due to US Covid school closure

Iíve been contemplating doing the same thing, since as it looks, my children will be virtual for at least another six months here in Atlanta. Thank you for this post.

Re: In Switzerland due to US Covid school closure

Children who are tourists cannot attend school in Switzerland.
For children who are registered as living in Switzerland, schooling is obligatory.

Bowlie, as I understood it, CaliforniaGirl is Swiss, but ordinarily lives in the USA. Therefore, for her children to attend school in Switzerland, she'd have to register them (and presumably herself, too) as living in Switzerland. As a Swiss citizen, she has the right to do this at any time. And thereby she'd automatically be registered as a tax-payer.
