ISS Health Regulations & FAQ for Onsite Learning

Hygiene, health and space regulations are very demanding for all school openings as the state has ordered the school to abide by the Ministry’s emphasis on health and safety during this time. Adhering to these regulations places restrictions on how we enter and use the building space.
This includes guided and segregated entries and exits, clearly marked directions on floors, distance markings on floors, mask policies and provision as needed, and plenty of soap, disinfectant and rigorous cleaning practices throughout both campuses.  Students and staff will be regularly trained on hand washing, and other required regulations for distancing.
Scroll down for Frequently Asked Questions and advice for keeping your child at home

Can my child go to school?

It is very important, especially with the current situation and Covid- 19, to keep you child at home, if (s)he is not well or running a fever.

If your child was sick, we kindly ask you not to return to school until the child has been without fever, diarrhea, vomiting, or other symptoms for 24 hours.

To check simply ask yourself: “Would my child have been able to go to school yesterday?” If you can answer with “yes”, your child can come to school today. If you answer with “no”, your child must stay home another day.

For further information see the ISS Health policy.

Please do not hesitate to contact our nurses, if you are not sure or if you have any questions.
