KIS International School is delighted to welcome students back on campus. Throughout the summer the school has worked hard to prepare for various scenarios of school, including a return to campus, a hybrid model, and remote learning.

Hand sanitiser stations help students stay safe during the pandemic.

Our return to the campus comes with many measures, some old and many new, to keep our community as safe as possible. All of these measures are explained in detail in a very elaborate Pandemic Handbook. The handbook includes information on how to reduce the chance of being exposed to the virus and how to deal with (possible) exposure to the virus. It covers measures that are taken by the school as well as directions for students and parents.

Measures include:

Sanitizing

This is supported by regular and deep cleaning, disinfecting, hand sanitizers, additional hand washing stations, shoe disinfectant mats, ventilation, air purifiers, limiting indoor time, and reduced sharing of resources.

Checking Temperatures

Temperature checks are performed at home and before entering campus through the thermal scanners.

Wearing Masks

Masks are worn by all community members while on campus, except when eating.

Screening

Screenings take place before school starts and throughout the day, including collecting information to allow contact tracing.

Maintaining Physical Distance

This includes fewer students per class, seats further apart, acrylic screens and partitions, one way foot traffic, fewer students on the school bus, limiting visitors and parents on campus (and live streaming parent events), no large school events and staggered times for lunch, playground, arrival and dismissal. The daily schedules have also been adjusted to allow physical distancing.

Communicating Regularly

This ensures all community members are aware of the measures and stay informed about developments at school and includes letters home as well as a back to school video.

Students and staff follow safety protocols to ensure a healthy learning environment

Our Primary School students will all have a staggered first week of school so that they can get used to the new measures. All community members will be educated on how to keep KIS as safe as possible.
