Preschool through Grade 12

ISB Campus COVID Safety and Operations 2020-2021

We are thrilled to be able to welcome our students back into the classrooms this year. Our plans are based on the official recommendations of the MA Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and the Cambridge Board of Health. We also take into account both the risks that COVID-19 presents for our school community and the enormous value of in-person learning for our students.  We have also relied on the expert advice of pediatricians, environmental health and engineering (EH&E) consultants, and HVAC contractors, as well as on the experiences of our colleagues in other international schools around the world who have already reopened their campuses.  

Our priority is the health of our community and excellence in learning, despite the challenging circumstances. We will keep evaluating our plan's effectiveness on an ongoing basis and make informed changes to address our students' academic needs and socio-emotional wellbeing.

We are prepared to seamlessly switch between different learning models should that be required. Below are some of the potential scenarios.
