I hope you are enjoying the summer break. The following information will assist all of us in having a smooth start to the new school year.
School Start Dates
CIS will be offering staggered entrance again this year. This staggered entrance will allow all students to become familiarized with the campus, learn about school rules and policies and to ensure a safe and relaxed atmosphere for all of our new and returning families to settle in for a great year of learning and fun. Students should come to class in full dress uniform and ready to learn!
School Hours of Operation
Regular student hours are from 8:24 a.m to 4:00 p.m Monday to Thursday. On Fridays our day ends at 3:04pm.
After-School Activities will take place Monday-Thursday from 3:04p.m – 4:00p.m (Beginning early September 2019 to June 2020)
Students are not permitted to be on campus prior to 8:00 a.m. Only students that are registered in after-school activities may remain on campus past 3:30 p.m.
Student arrival and dismissal times may change due to special school events or inclement weather. Parents will be made aware of any changes to the school day in a timely manner.
If you require bussing for your child, please contact the office staff at 20 3993 9333 Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m to 5 p.m to inquire. For parents or students using drop off service, please use the pull-in lane provided. We request that parents follow the instructions from school security and staff to ensure a safe drop-off zone for everyone.
Paid school lunch is provided in the cafeteria each day for all students. If you do not wish to partake in paid school lunch, student must bring their own lunch from home.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Students are not permitted to leave campus during the lunch hour.
Please mark your calendar for August 29 from 5:00pm – 7:00pm for our first annual curriculum night and After-School Activity Sign-up (ASA). You will be able to meet your child’s teacher, learn about the school from our new leadership and administration team and choose your child’s activities for the year.
CIS provides inclusive, heterogeneous classes. The school develops homeroom and class lists. Parental requests for preferred teachers are not considered. All lists will be available on the first day of school.
