Frankfurt International School is pleased to announce a gradual reopening for all students in First Steps through Grade 11; our Grade 12 students are officially done with classes – congratulations, Seniors!
Grade 11 students returned to campus on 4 May.
During the week of 18 May, Grade 5, 9 and 10 students returned to the Oberursel Campus; Grade 6-8 students returned to the Wiesbaden Campus.
During the week of 25 May, Grades 4 and 8 will return to the Oberursel Campus; Grades 4 and 5 will return to the Wiesbaden Campus.
During the week of 2 June, First Steps through Grade 3 students will return to both campuses.
All grade-level returns to campus have specific criteria (for example, some grade levels are split in half and will attend class on campus every other day; other grade levels will come to campus for morning classes and other grades will come for afternoon classes). When not in class on campus, students will learn via the Distance Learning Plan (DLP).
Although our campuses remain closed to outside visitors, the admissions office remains available to answer your questions by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Since 2008, FIS has partnered with ARAMARK to provide students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors with healthy, delicious food. Our cafeterias offer daily vegetarian dishes, a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables – and fewer sugary snacks and drinks.
Cashless Payment System
On the Oberursel Campus, Grade 2-12 students use a cashless payment system. Because it is much faster to swipe a card than handle individual cash transactions, the cashless system helps ensure students have ample time to enjoy their food. All Oberursel Campus Elementary and Upper School students must have an electronic ID card to purchase food as cash is not accepted.
Oberursel Campus Primary Students
Students at the FIS Primary School order their lunch daily at school and use lunch tickets rather than the cashless payment system.
Wiesbaden Campus Students
Students on our Wiesbaden Campus use an online ordering system rather than the cashless payment system.
For more detailed information on the cashless payment system and ordering lunches in the Primary School and on the Wiesbaden Campus, please see the FAQs below.
The cashless system provides increased efficiency in the cafeteria as it is much faster to swipe a card than handle individual cash transactions.
