Safekeeping the Future

From trips off campus to routine safeguarding on campus, we share the privilege and go the extra step keeping students safe as they grow and become leaders.

Field Trip Preparation

As a member of International SOS an event plan is developed for each off-campus event.
The plan includes:

  • Staff pre-visit the trip destination to confirm all accommodation, food, activity and service information
  • Destination and event details are approved by International SOS
  • Permission to travel forms signed by parent / guardian
  • Medical information pertaining to trip participants who require specific medical assistance
  • List of teachers and chaperones, with contact information
  • List of students on the trip, with current emergency phone numbers
  • For overnight and out of city event, a calling tree in the safety plan ensures full contact

Air Quality

Air quality and the effects of heavily polluted air on children’s health is a serious concern. For that reason, ISQ's indoor facilities (classrooms, hallways and areas for indoor sport and play) are closed from outside air and constantly provided with filtered air though our Centralized Air Filtration System. This allows us to continue with classes and sports, even on heavily polluted days. Every day we check the air quality index (AQI) before physical activities.

For our outdoor facilities a policy is in place to adjust activities in an attempt to safeguard the health and wellness of our students. This policy applies to outdoor sports as well as outdoor playtime. Teachers will immediately pull a student from an activity if he/she shows signs of abnormal respiratory distress, and notify the school nurse for further monitoring.

We take extraordinary measures with International SOS to keep our students and staff safe. We're proud to be recognized as one of the best in education.
