New visitors to the school will be asked to complete a travel declaration upon entry to the campus. 

To support the wellbeing of our community we would ask any members of our community who have visited Mainland China to observe the following Leave of Absence (LOA) guidelines with regard to visiting the campus.

 

LEAVE OF ABSENCE (LOA)

As advised by the Ministry of Health (MOH), with effect from 31 January 2020 6pm, all individuals who have been to Mainland China within the last 14 days are to be placed on a 14-day leave of absence.

AIS has additionally had this advisory in place for all staff and students from 15 January 2020 with the following requirements:

  • All staff, students and visitors who have returned from Mainland China after January 15th 2020 are asked to remain home from school for the 14-Day period indicated above.  Please note that this period of absence is from the date of return to Singapore.
  • During the period of absence individuals are asked to monitor their temperature and general health.  Should you or your children experience any health issues please contact your doctor immediately.
  • The School will be providing on-line resources for students who are absent to ensure that their learning is not disrupted.
     

SELF PREVENTION AND EDUCATION
In order to protect both yourself and your family members, as well as the greater school community, we remind you to follow best practice guidelines:

  • Please encourage your child to practice safe hygiene by regularly and thoroughly washing their hands. Our teachers and nurses will be providing further education and support for our students with this and other hygiene practices. 
  • Hand sanitizers are now located in all major traffic areas. 
  • Please keep your child at home from school and seek medical attention immediately if you notice : 
    • any symptoms of a respiratory illness
    • an elevated temperature of 37.5°C or above

For further information or updates on the local situation, please visit the Ministry of Health (MOH)

 

If you are a current parent at AIS, please refer to the Connect - Parent Portal for further information on precautionary measures in place for school activities. 
 

We realise that these measures may place a slight imposition on you. We are grateful for your understanding and appreciate your assistance in helping us keep AIS a safe and healthy school community.
