Our strong communication and planning along with consistent safety protocols enable us to successfully manage the COVID-19 challenges this school year. Our track record of limited cases across the community reflect the strong partnership, trust, and support experienced between the school and our families.
AIS is uniquely prepared to manage the ever changing COVID-19 context by way of our American/IB educational approach and philosophy, which supports students’ creative, adaptive and problem-solving skills. Like our students, our leaders, teachers, and staff are similarly “wired” to adapt, create, team, and adjust to the needs of our students, regardless of the model of learning delivery, whether inside of the classroom or across a virtual connection, while maintaining strong relationships and connection.
Our experiences with COVID-19 may be just as diverse as the places our families are coming from. Each of us may have different expectations and will adjust to the current circumstances in Vienna and at AIS. We will strive to provide clarity and consistency of communication so that students and their families feel prepared, informed, and reassured. Parents are our partners at AIS and we will continue to work with you for the benefit of our students.
Please take a moment to review the following, based on recently released Austrian COVID regulations:
- Information about COVID-19 testing protocols for the 2022-2023 school year will be released in August 2022.
- Mask wearing is optional everywhere on campus.
- Visitors to school must be able to show 3G status.
We fully expect all community members to adhere to Austrian travel restrictions and quarantine measures prior to setting foot on campus. We also expect all community members to follow all current protocols as established by the Austrian government.
