Greetings Buffalos and welcome to this edition of the Weekly Bulletin. As usual, please spend 10-15 minutes to review this newsletter so that you can stay abreast of everything happening at AISM. 

We are excited to be going into our second full week of on-campus learning. Kudos to all the staff and students for their attention to our health and safety protocols since their return to campus. This will be vital in keeping everybody safe and healthy as we move forward. 

This is a great week for parent engagement, with a range of parent events on offer. I hope you will consider joining us for the events that are relevant to you. You can read more about each event later in this newsletter but here is a quick rundown of the schedule:

  • Monday – Grade 11 and 12 Week Without Walls Information Session at 18:00
  • Tuesday – Secondary School Principal’s Coffee Morning at 08:45
  • Wednesday – IB Diploma Programme Year 2 Parent Meeting at 18:00
  • Wednesday – Parent with Confidence session for Primary School parents with Ms. Marlo at 18:15
  • Thursday – Primary School Principal’s Coffee Evening at 17:30

We are working hard to streamline our afternoon pickup procedures. Please be diligent in following the traffic flow in order to support this work. Many delays have been caused when someone parks in a way that blocks other cars or tries to go against traffic. 

On most days, we are able to clear the campus in 15-20 minutes; however, we have begun to see conflicts with the French School pickup on Tuesdays and Thursdays. While we try to resolve this conflict, you may wish to consider coming a few minutes early on those days. We appreciate your patience during these times. 

Have a great week!

Dr. Russell Menard
