During the press conference it was announced by the prime minister Mark Rutte that the special measures in the Netherlands would be extended until at least the 28th April.  This means that distance learning will continue at the ISB. The May holidays start after this date, therefore these measures will be in place until the 3rd of May.

It was also announced that there was a real chance that these measures would be extended past the 28th of April. Therefore parents were advised not to book any holidays or travel around the country.
