On arguably the most unique start to an International School of Indiana academic year in school history, students began their day with a modified version of the annual bell-ringing tradition, using hand wipes to help protect the health and safety of classmates. 

Prior to bell ringing, every student who arrived on campus for in-person learning, more than 400 in all, completed a temperature check and health screening, one of our new COVID-Ready Campuses policies

As classes officially began, nearly 100 remote learners logged on to join their classmates virtually, and the Upper School brought all of its students together for the first virtual assembly of the year at 10:00 a.m.

"This was a truly remarkable day for our school community. I'm glad that we were able to share some of the traditions that we've grown accustomed to celebrating on the first day of school while also adapting to the new realities of operating school during a pandemic," says Ms. Elizabeth Head, the ISI Head of School. "I'm deeply grateful for the hard work of our faculty and staff, and the patience and understanding of our families as we navigate, not just the first day, but a new normal. Together we'll continue to refine policies and processes so we can progress through these early weeks of the year with increased efficiency and success."
