COVID-19 Guidelines & Policies

As determined by our Board of Directors, School leadership, and our medical consultants, our current COVID-19 policy requires that all residential students, interns, and faculty are fully vaccinated in order to participate in our Semester, Summer Term, and visiting programs.

The Island School is committed to ensuring the health and well being of our community and our island neighbors. We have worked with global public health, epidemiological, and medical experts to develop a multi-layered approach to mitigating the risk of viral spread within and beyond our community. Health, safety, and managed risk remain a primary focus for our School; COVID-19 has presented a new found challenge to reinforce our commitment to these principles.

Our programs have always been built around accounting for and effectively managing a wide variety of risks. With consideration for the gating and basic protocols imposed by the CDC, the WHO, the Bahamian Government, and our own best-practice developed through extensive planning with our consulting partners, Fusion Cell and Prometheus Medical, this document contains a brief summary of our policies and procedures that we have implemented as we welcome students to our Semester and Summer Term, Elementary Learning Center (ELC), Deep Creek Middle School (DCMS), local and visiting programs, as well as to continue our science, research and innovation operations. As we safely and responsibly welcome students to our campuses, we are responsive to local, national and global changes related to COVID-19 and will update our community and operations accordingly.
