The Latvian government has announced a strict lockdown to be in force over the next 4 weeks to help relieve the hospitals that are overwhelmed with Covid patients. Currently, here is what we will do at ISL:
- Starting Ocotber 25, PreK-Grade 1 students will be allowed on campus for in-person learning. Grade 1 students will need to wear masks when indoors at all times, except when eating, when outdoors or when in PE or music class. Families must submit this questionnaire before Monday, October 25.
- Starting November 1, Grade 2-4 students will be allowed back on campus for in-person learning. Families must submit this questionnaire before Monday, November 1. Students must also have proof of a negative Covid test within 72 hours of returning back on campus.
- To help assist families, we will offer saliva testing to be done at school out front on Friday, October 29th from 08:45-10:00am. Parents must assist their student(s) with this testing. ISL will then deliver tests to the lab. Families can also schedule their own testing outside of school.
- We are hopeful that Grades 5-12 students will be allowed back on campus with starting November 15. We will await further guidelines from the Latvian government on this
- Continued hygiene precautions will remain in place, such as encouraging frequent hand washing, classroom ventilation, staggered lunches, frequent disinfection, and student density reduction where possible.
- Proper mask wearing on campus and weekly student Covid testing for Grade 1-12 students without certificates of vaccination or immunity will continue.
