Info on the APEEE services
We hereby would like to update you concerning the APEEE services. During this period of school closure all our services are of course suspended, hence the majority of our 160 staff are not able to work. We are therefore taking advantage of the Belgian Federal ‘chomage temporaire’ scheme, which entitles them to Government income support, in order to minimise our costs. We are also taking steps to ensure they do not suffer financial hardship; these are valued colleagues and often longtime members of the APEEE team that your children will have come to know. In these extraordinary times, solidarity from parents is important.
There are however fixed costs to our business and financial commitments that cannot be offset. Once we have a full picture of these, and clarity on how long the school will remain closed, we will be in a position to assess the possibility of reimbursements to you. We will keep you updated as the situation develops.
During these difficult and uncertain times we would like to thank you for your support and trust. We would also like to express our gratitude towards those among you who continue working to support our lives, especially the courageous healthcare workers and those in essential industries and the public sector that keep us fed and our society functioning.
Stay safe, all of you
APEEE Bxl Woluwe
