SAFETY PROTOCOL

We are glad to welcome you back to our Institutes in Santo Domingo and in Sosua.

The well-being of our teachers, employees and our clients is our top priority. That is why we have taken protective and hygienic measures based on the 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. Please follow the rules.


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.

Hygiene
At both our locations, you will have access to several bathrooms where you can frequently wash your hands with soap and water. In addition, there are disinfectants for hands placed on several spots in the school building. Please follow the established sneeze & cough etiquette and hygiene rules.

Keep distance
In all areas of the school (indoor and outdoor) a minimum distance of 1.5 meters between all people on site has to be maintained. Seating arrangements in the classrooms, clear markings on the floor and the spacious areas of our outdoor classrooms, gardens and terraces help us to ensure compliance with the distance rules.

Protective masks
When entering or leaving the school’s ground or when moving in and around our buildings, you have to wear a protective mask at all times. We are sorry, but we cannot serve clients who come to our facilities without wearing a mask. If you come to class and forgot your mask, we will provide you with one at a cost of RD$ 250.- per piece.

Catering
We will continue to provide water and coffee for free throughout the day. Please bring your own water bottle for refill at our water dispenser. Coffee will only be served in disposable cups.
