Important Information for Summer Sessions 2021

Changes and preconditions to join the summer sessions

29 October 2020

Changes to the Montana summer sessions programme

  • Reduction of the programme to two weeks starting 18 July and ending 31 July 2021
  • No day students option
  • Excursions will take place depending on the situation in the outdoor surrounding areas avoiding rush hours and places with large assemblies of people
  • No airport transfers offered for arrivals and departures


Pre-conditions to join the summer programme
:

  • Students must be accompanied to Institut Montana by their parents or a legal guardian on a welcome day; students must be picked up at Institut Montana on departure day
  • Parents or a legal guardian should be within a 6-hour driving distance during the full length of the programme and available to come back to pick up a student within this timeframe
  • Quick tests will be performed at Institut Montana upon arrival. Only school children in excellent health and with a negative test result will be admitted to the summer programme.

    In case a student gets a positive test result from a rapid test it only means that he/she is suspected to have been infected with the coronavirus. The student would therefore need to get the test result confirmed with a PCR test in order to be admitted to the summer programme. There are different test centres in the area and we are pleased to support our families in finding the closest one and organizing the appointment. It is the responsibility of the family to organise the stay during the time it may require to receive the results as the student cannot join the summer programme until a PCR negative test result is available. 

Cancellations

Our relationships with our families are the foundation of what we do and despite these unprecedented challenging times, we want to continue showing our commitment. Our current cancellation and refund policy applies to all circumstances. In addition, we have a free cancellation policy until 30 June 2021 for situations that may occur due to the Coronavirus. Please ask our team.

Travels

Institut Montana cannot guarantee entry in Switzerland for you and your child, however our team is at your service should you need any clarification or support in understanding the current travel situation to Switzerland. 

Please find below the relevant information for entering Switzerland and the Swiss list of high-risk countries which is updated every two weeks.

Sincerely,
