Campus Reopening

Latest Updates

Last updated on July 23, 2021. This page will be updated as updates become available.

  • On July 19 JIS announced that it will begin the school year with online learning and plans to shift to a blended or hybrid program (offering both an on-campus and online program) as soon as permitted to do so
  • The first day of school for JIS students will be August12 due to a change in the public holiday calendar and the observance of Muharram, the Hijri New Year 

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 all excited about the prospects of returning to school for in-classroom learning, to reconnect with friends and teachers after months of engaging with them through a computer screen.

However, it is of utmost importance that when we do resume on-campus activities, we do so with stringent health and safety measures in place to ensure the well-being of all JIS Dragons. To make this happen, we will need your help and the cooperation of our entire community, not just when you are on campus but when you are off campus as well.
