COVID-19 Measurements & Announcements

Dear Parents,

This page has been created for you to reach the school’s Covid-19 measurements and guidelines all in one place.

Updated on: March 9, 2022

A control guide on “Improving Hygiene Conditions and Infection Prevention in Educational Institutions” has been sent to our school by the Ministry of Education. Within this context, “MEF Schools Pandemic Process Management Booklet” has been prepared by the school’s Pandemic Committee.

Please click on the booklet to know how we manage the pandemic process, what measurements and guidelines we have put in place.

Our school will practice these guidelines across its campuses meticulously. We expect our community members to read the booklet carefully and follow the specified guidelines.

Campus Covid Measures: 

  • Outdoor mask-wearing is not mandatory.

  • Indoor mask-wearing is mandatory for everyone at all times during their stay at school, regardless of their vaccination status.

  • Parents and visitors will not be allowed to enter the schools, including the school garden, during the pandemic.

  • Temperature measurement will continue to be taken through thermal cameras at school building entrances.

Covid Positive Case in a classroom:

  • If a student tests positive for Covid-19, they will quarantine for 7 days and continue online education during their quarantine time. They can return to school on the 8th day without taking a PCR test.

  • Other students in that classroom will continue face-to-face education. Their temperatures will be taken everyday by the school health team.

Covid Positive Contact Case:

  • In the case where a family member living in the same house tests positive for Covid, the student will quarantine for 7 days.

  • If the student has had 2 vaccinations or has tested positive for Covid in the last 3 months, then they may take a PCR test on the 5th day as long as they do not have any symptoms. If the PCR test result is negative, the student can return to school on the 6th day.

  • Those close contact students who have 2 doses of vaccine in the last 3 months can return to face-to-face education if their PCR test result is negative.

  • Those close contact students who have 3 doses of vaccine can return to face-to-face education if their PCR test result is negative.

Important reminder: Everyone at the MEF IS Community who have given PCR tests, are in close contact and have symptoms in the family should inform their school’s leadership team members immediately. The school health unit will be notified by the school leadership team members.
