STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP

UPDATED JULY 6

Contact Department:
Lower School and Upper School administration.

Executive Oversight:
Upper School Principal and Lower School Principal.

Scope:
These required protocols apply to all ISI students.


Policy Statement:
The COVID-19 outbreak and the public health need for social distancing have created the need for revised arrival and dismissal procedures to limit the risk of community transmission during arrival and departure times. Therefore, based on CDC Guidelines, ISI will stagger arrival and dismissal times and plan to limit direct contact with parents as much as possible to provide for the health and safety of our entire campus community while continuing to provide educational and other essential services to our students and their families. 

Reason for Policy:
1. To provide guidance on how arrival and dismissal procedures will be implemented during arrival and departure periods until International School of Indiana is able to return to normal operation in accordance with all public health and governmental orders. 

2. To differentiate instruction based on campus, building, and participation in before/after school programming.


Procedures for Drop Off/Arrival on Campus: 
1. All healthy students will be able to attend in person classes.

2. Student arrival times are staggered according to the following schedule:
