Absences and Special Leave

​​​​​COVID-19 Measures

At the ISL we are following the guidelines of the RIVM. Please​ che​ck the latest updates on their website: https://www.rivm.nl/en​​​

We trust that with keeping the 1.5-meter distancing with the teachers, washing hands frequently, sneezing and coughing in the elbow and staying at home when there are COVID-related symptoms, we will continue to have COVID-free school.​​​

Student Absence

Student illness must be reported to the school on the first day between 8.15​ and 9.00 am by telephone. 

Student Services: +31 (0) 35 539 5422

Before the student returns to school, the parent is required, each day, to report the illness to Student Services in the morning. U​pon their return to school, the student must hand in a letter signed by the parent and stating the dates of the student’s absence due to illness. The student must hand in the letter to the Homeroom Teacher before the start of their lessons. Please keep your child's Homeroom Teacher and the Head of the ISL notified as well, by sending them an email​.

Special L​eave​

In the event family circumstances require a special leave for a student, the parent must request this in writing and well in advance by sending an email to the homeroom teacher of their child. The following form must be filled in and submitted as an attachment in that​ email:​
