Our Guiding Principles

Through our resilience and the strong partnership between the home and school, we have been able to overcome the many challenges that this year has presented. As we prepare to reopen campus, there are many factors that will determine what a safe return looks like. The following principles will guide us as we make these decisions.

  • The health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and community members is paramount.
  • The mandates and guidelines set forth by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and the Indonesian government.
  • The ability to offer a strong educational program that is grounded in the JIS mission and values in accordance with the best health and safety practices.
  • The information and advice from trusted health officials, reliable scientific medical organizations, and consultation with international schools around the world and in our region.
  • The feedback and needs of our community.

Community Responsibility

We are thrilled that our students are able to engage in on-campus learning but remain vigilant in combating Covid-19 in order to keep our community safe. 

Our mandatory health and safety measures include: 

  • Consistent hand-washing at the designated stations;  

  • Mandatory mask-wearing while indoors and outside; 

  • Regular temperature screenings; and  

  • Maintaining social distancing.  

Most Importantly: Please stay home if you have any Covid-like symptoms and get tested. Thank you for your support and cooperation.

In the Event of A Positive Test 

Steps to be taken:

  1. Isolation if the student or staff member is on campus. All JIS campuses have an isolation room. The student or staff member will be isolated and sent home.

  2. Student/staff member would need to get tested. 

  3. If you had Covid-19 and had symptoms, isolate for at least 5 days. To calculate your 5-day isolation period, day 0 is your first day of symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms developed. You can leave isolation after 5 full days.

  4. Isolate for 5 days. To calculate your 5-day isolation period, day 0 is the first day you experience symptoms. Day 1 is the first full day after your symptoms develop. To end isolation, you need to be symptom-free and have negative antigen test results. Antigen tests need to be administered at a certified lab. If symptoms persist after 5 days or the antigen test is still positive,  you will need to extend your isolation to 10 days. You must be free of symptoms for the last 3 days.  

  5. Quarantine is no longer required for close contacts. We strongly recommend that close contact monitor for symptoms and get an antigen test on Day 5. If someone starts to display symptoms, they need to stay home and immediately get tested and notify the school.
  6. If there is a positive case in the household, all members of the household need to quarantine and monitor for symptoms. If symptom-free, they may test on Day 5 to end their quarantine period. If fully vaccinated (2 shots or more) or if recently recovered from Covid (within the last 90 days), students may take an antigen test with negative results. Antigen tests need to be administered at a certified lab. 
  7. The campus will be cleaned and disinfected per CDC guidelines.

Medical Support and Covid Testing Site

Students: Our testing center for students is temporarily closed. If your child is ill, please monitor their symptoms and do not send them to school. If needed, please test your child. It is important that we help take care of one another, so we ask you to be vigilant to symptoms and health needs in your family.

Faculty and Staff: A full-time, trained medical staff member is available on-site to assist faculty and staff with any symptoms or sickness. Both the Cilandak and Pattimura campuses will have Covid testing sites operated by Royal Progress Health. Royal Progress Health is a certified and registered Covid-19 lab (no.C.174). Hours of operation are: 

  • CIL Campus Nurse’s Office: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 7-10am  

  • PEL Campus Isolation Room: Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 7-9am

Cleaning & Sanitization
