♥ Welcome Back ♥

October 1, 2021

We hope that all of you had a wonderful summer! During the break, AIEP has been busy recruiting/matching new students and host families, managing students who remained in the US, and students who arrived in the U.S.

AIEP offered a 2 – week quarantine service to most students in our program as they arrived in the US. that included meals and housing at our dormitory in Derby, CT.

In addition, AIEP was able to have an onsite clinic for students’ physicals, PPD’s and QuantiFERON’s. We also had the Naugatuck Health Department come to our dormitory twice a week to provide COVID vaccines and other immunizations that our students needed.

Before the students moved into their host homes from our dormitory, AIEP had representatives to assist with student’s banking accounts, insurance cards, and phone services.

All CDC guidelines were followed and in place for the quarantine. The students were not allowed to leave their room during the first 7 day period. Food, drinks, and snacks were brought to their door and placed on a food tray. The wearing of masks at all times was enforced daily.

As we start this new academic year, we look with anticipation to the many opportunities that host parents and students will make lasting memories with one another.

We look forward to a successful and safe academic year for all!
