With the start of a new school year, a lot needs to happen so that students can continue to learn and thrive without raising the risk of spreading COVID-19. The goal of having children attend school in person at ITS Kigali, which is also critically the only way they learn best, will only be safe when the entire school community has the spread of the Corona virus under control. The layered approach that is most crucial to keep students, teachers and staff safe and our Approach and Safety Strategy to COVID-19 keeps us guarantee readiness to reopen a school for in-person learning of our students.

Most importantly, ITS Kigali school management commits to provide students with holistic support. We endeavor to provide our youthful learners with vital information on hand washing, social distancing, face masks and other measures to protect themselves, their fellow students and any other member of the school community and their families; facilitate mental health support; and help to prevent stigma and discrimination by encouraging students to be kind to each other and avoid stereotypes when talking about the virus.

Our safety strategic plan is aimed at helping us to protect our students and the entire school community from transmission of the COVID-19 virus while at school. The strategic plan acts as a guidance that will provides critical considerations and practical checklists to keep the school safe. It also advises other stakeholders and local authorities on how to adapt and implement emergency strategy.
