School Health & Safety Policies
CIS considers the health and safety of its students to be of prime importance and is committed to providing a safe school environment for its students. With the exception of arrival and dismissal times, all parents and visitors to the campus must sign in at the reception desk and wear a visitor's tag provided. The school maintains appropriate emergency procedures to ensure speedy evacuation of the premises in the event of fire, earthquake, or lockdown. Regular practice drills are held at intervals during the school year to ensure that all students, faculty and staff are familiar with the procedures.
School health and safety policies are outlined in each of the parent/student handbooks. In addition, each student will be required to have waivers & contracts sgined by parents on file at the start of each school year. These forms will be sent home with students.
Required Annual Contracts and Waivers
Annual contracts & waivers are due to the office as soon as possible. Forms are specific to each student age group; please download forms here:

Cayman Islands Health Screening
New students entering Kindergarten or higher grades are required to participate in a one-time health screening prior to entering school in the Cayman Islands. The Parent Health Screening Letter (click on the image below) outlines the requirement and the steps for making an appointment. If your child has attended other schools in the Cayman Islands and has already participated in a health screening, please provide CIS with the white card from your child’s school file.

Food Allergy Policy
CIS recognizes that food allergies, in some instances, may be severe and even occasionally life threatening. While CIS is not an allergen-free campus, the school's aim is to reduce the likelihood of severe allergic reactions of students with known food allergies while at school, and to increase the likelihood that appropriate medical treatment is available in the case of an allergic reaction. Please review the Food Allergy Policy (contained in Parent-Student Handbooks) to see the CIS policy. Ultimately, the primary responsibility for reducing the risks associated with food allergies rests with the student and his/her parents.
