COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines for Students
(November 2022 Update)
Below are COVID-19 policies, guidelines, and best practices for students. The purpose of these policies and guidelines is to 1) maintain a clean and hygienic school campus, 2) limit the possibility of COVID-19 infection and transmission, and 3) create a safe environment for the students, faculty, and staff of The English Island (TEI).
Students of TEI are not required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination. However, vaccination is strongly encouraged. TEI reserves the right to update this policy in accordance with current CDC guidance.
Students who develop COVID-19 symptoms should notify their teacher and the Registrar via phone or email. Students should not come to the school for any reason if they are symptomatic.
The student should receive a COVID-19 test from a testing center or a medical professional or take a home test. If the student is positive for COVID-19, the student must take another COVID test and receive a negative result before returning to class in person. Home tests are acceptable, but PCR tests are preferred, especially for F-1 students.
F-1 students wishing to receive Reduced Course Load (RCL), must submit a note from a medical doctor. Contact the PDSO and DSO at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Students who have been exposed but are asymptomatic may continue to attend class. However, they will be required to wear a KN95 mask over the nose and mouth for 5 days from last day of possible exposure.
These policies will be actively enforced by teachers and admin. Students who come to class with COVID-19 symptoms will be sent home until such time as they can produce a negative test.
