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.

Health & Safety Measures

COVID-19 Symptoms

You are COVID symptomatic if you experience any of the following
We rely on everyone's sense of responsibility to stay at home if they experience COVID-19 symptoms.
  • Fever
  • Dry cough
  • Aches and pains
  • Sore throat
  • Diarrhea
  • Red eyes
  • Conjunctivitis
  • Headache
  • Loss of taste or smell
  • Rash
  • Runny nose
  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
Any person displaying COVID-19 symptoms should not come to campus.

In the Event of a Positive COVID Test

Medical Support and Covid Testing Site

A full-time, trained medical staff is available on-site to assist students 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).  Having a Covid testing site on campus will help the school to quickly and reliably ensure that anyone who displays Covid symptoms gets tested. Testing someone when they develop symptoms is key to keeping the community safe. A fast response is key to effective tracking and tracing when there is a positive case.
