ISZL's CoronaVirus Response
STAYING SAFE, MAKING THE MOST OF OUR LEARNING
UPDATED 4 NOVEMBER 2020
As Covid-19 cases in Switzerland rise, ISZL is keeping close watch on how to keep our students and wider community safe and - if possible - our doors open. We are grateful to have had our campuses open since the spring of 2020, and to have welcomed students back in person for the start of the 2020-21 school year.
One of the biggest changes this year is the compulsory wearing of masks for our Middle and High School students, and for staff throughout the school. Primary students are not obliged to wear masks, although they can do if desired. This mask wearing takes place regardless of social distancing, with the exception of eating and drinking, where a minimum of 1.5 metres must be observed. Additional hygiene and ventilation measures have also been put in place.
Like all schools in Switzerland, we liaise with the Federal and Cantonal authorities and undertake every reasonable measure to limit the risk of Covid-19 transmission. Our school reopening plan sets those measures out, and parents are encouraged to study it carefully.
Thank you for your continued support. Please know that your partnership in consideration of our students is deeply appreciated. We are thrilled to continue on this 2020-21 learning journey with you and look forward to our collective work to realise ISZL’s vision: We help every student turn their learning into action, creating the opportunity to stretch themselves further and achieve more than they believe possible.
