Welcome to our Schools in Santo Domingo and Sosúa!
IIC Health Safety Protocol for On-site Classes
(Update: 16 February 2022)
The well-being of our teachers, employees and our students is our top priority. That is why we have taken protective and hygienic measures based on the COVID-19 Health Guidelines of the WHO and the Dominican Department of Public Health. Our goal is to guarantee for all of us a safe and pleasant learning atmosphere at our schools.
Stay home when feeling sick
This is our overall policy for clients and staff alike: If you feel sick, stay home and take your time to recover. If a student comes to the school with symptoms of sickness, the school’s staff and/or the teacher have the right to exclude the student from class. PLEASE act responsible and prevent others from getting sick themselves.
At both our locations, you will have access to several bathrooms where you can frequently wash your hands with soap and water.
Please follow the established sneeze & cough etiquette.
Protective masks (no longer mandatory, but recommended)
Due to governmental order from February 16, 2022, wearing protective masks is no longer requested, however highly recommended, especially in public areas and closed rooms. Please act responsible, for your own and others’ well-being.
Practicing social distancing is recommended in all areas of the school. Seating arrangements in the classrooms and the spacious areas of our outdoor classrooms, gardens and terraces will support you. Mobile boards and WIFI available on the whole school premise enable us to flexibly move classes to distant free spaces if necessary.
Groups are limited to a maximum number of students depending on the size of the classroom. Regular Spanish group courses stay limited to max. 7 students (average 3 to 4 students per class).
We provide drinking water for free throughout the day. If you like, you can also bring your own water bottle for refill at our water dispenser. Our community kitchen is accessible; please follow the safety guidelines when using our facilities.
