Dear AISM Community,

I hope that everyone rested and enjoyed time away from screens during the four-day Thanksgiving weekend. We needed that time. The next three weeks will fly by with Week Without Walls (WWW) trips and projects for some of our secondary students. All of our students will have culminating projects and assessments in the coming weeks. Please be safe, limit your social activities, and let’s all hope that there are no disruptions to face-to-face learning. 

The calendar for the 2021–2022 school year has been approved by the Board and can be found HERE.

Our online flowchart for quarantining, based on our new travel guidance, is HERE. Our Campus Reopening Parameters will soon be updated to reflect this change. 

The CDC has published new research and guidance on limiting the spread of transmission of the coronavirus, and AISM is adapting our parameter on quarantining after travel. Please protect our community’s health: stay at home after international travel. This is our new guidance for students and their families, and all our teachers and employees: 

Students, faculty and staff do not need to quarantine if a household member has traveled within the country or internationally.


Students, teachers and staff who have traveled internationally can come to the campus seven (7) days after the date of their return to Mozambique if they share with the school a negative PCR test taken at least five days after their return. If not, then travelers returning from other countries must learn or work online from home for 14 days following their return.

Best regards,

Jim Laney Jr.,

School Director
