Our students’ good health and safe participation in all of the School’s programs and activities are an unconditional priority for us.
Our Medical Services, unique in the educational system of Greece, include two fully equipped infirmaries on both campuses that operate at all times during normal school hours and when after-school programs are in session.
They are staffed by a pediatrician who is in charge of the services, a pediatrician especially for Kindergarten and eight nurses who, together, ensure the continuous and coordinated provision of care to students in all of the school units. Our goal cannot be fulfilled without the active participation of our students’ parents and, as such, communication and close cooperation with them is essential.
In collaboration with the Hellenic-American Educational Foundation Crisis Management Committee, our Medical Services coordinate all the measures implemented for the prevention of the spread of the new coronavirus. HAEF’s internal policy regarding COVID-19 is regularly updated, depending on the latest developments and relevant State guidelines. You can see all the measures in the Keeping Athens College Safe section of the website.
