FROM THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE: OFFICE:

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Re-Enrollment Re-Enrollment for SY201 1-12

The Admission Office and the individual school offices are making plans and gathering re-enrollment data for next school year, SY 2011-2012. Middle and High School students must indicate re-enrollment intentions through their Course Selection form (which is done done on-line). If you have any questions about this, please contact the individual school offices. URGENT: If you know that your child(ren) will not be returning to ISM for the 2011-12 school year, please inform the Admission Office as soon as possible if you have not already done so. We currently have very few families indicating that they will not be returning and consequently there are an ever growing number of applicants applicants in a WAITPOOL for possible openings. This is causing great distress and anxiety in those families that are waiting to hear if their children will be accepted into ISM. If you are sure that your child will be leaving ISM, please please submit a Withdrawal Notification Form. Form. The Withdrawal Notification Form can be obtained from the Admission Office or from the ISM website: Admission tab and then click on Re-Enrollment & Withdrawal. This will be a great help for our our planning and to the many families waiting to be admitted. Thank you.

Re-Enrollment requirements will be similar to last year and a Re-Enrollment DEPOSIT PAYMENT is not required to reserve a space at the School for SY2011-12. However, parents are obliged to inform the School in writing, before the second Friday of May, if their children will withdraw at the end of the academic year. There is a WITHDRAWAL NOTIFICATION FORM for such purpose and this must be submitted to the Admissions Office before the second Friday of May of each school year. Failure to do so will lead to a deduction of US$1,000 from the Facilities Upgrade Deposit (FUD), in compensation for having held a space for the child and thus preventing the School from offering that space to another child prior to the summer holiday break. The Re-Enrollment Form and other requested forms for each re-enrolling student will be available by the beginning of April in both 'hardcopy' at the Admission Office and online on our website under Admission and Re-Enrollment & Withdrawal. If you do not download this information from the website then please drop by the Admission Office during office hours (7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) p.m.) and pick up the set of Re-Enrollment Forms. Parents may do this personally or your child can come to the Admission Office and and get the forms. If you would like to have your driver or househelp pick up the forms, please give them a letter of authorization to collect the Re-Enrollment Forms for your child/children. Regards, Gary W. Jerome Director of Admission
