Parent IDs Current parent IDs will continue to be valid for the new school year 2011-2012. Parents who require replacement school IDs due to loss or damage can acquire these from the Security Office upon payment of Php100.00 to the Cashier. Student IDs All students will be issued with new ID cards at the beginning of the new school year. This year there will be no need for returning students to visit the Security Office as we will be utilizing the photographs taken for the yearbooks. School Passes School passes issued to parent’s employees and representatives need to be replaced for next school year. As of August 31, 2011 the green bordered passes will be invalid. The security office is now accepting applications for new school passes, however the cards will not be available for collection before July 1, 2011. Each family will be given two free school passes. Additional school passes may be obtained after paying a processing fee of Php100.00 each to the Cashier’s Office. 2, Car Stickers for the New School Year The car stickers for school year 2011/2012 will be available from the security office beginning July 1, 2011. For vehicles already displaying an existing sticker, parents should submit a completed renewal form with a copy of a current LTO official receipt. For new vehicles, parents are reminded that a copy of the vehicle’s certificate of registration and a current official receipt need to be submitted with the application. Applications for vehicles registered with companies or other institutions should be supported by a letter of assignment. Each ISM family will be issued one vehicle sticker free of charge. Any additional stickers will be issued following payment of P100 to the cashier’s office. I would like to thank all members of the ISM community for their cooperation across this school year in helping us maintain ISM as a safe and secure environment for our children.

Dear Parents, In line with the forthcoming graduation of our seniors, we are preparing the return of the Facilities Upgrade Deposit (FUD) of $5,000.00 paid at the time your child entered International School Manila, Inc. To enable us to release the refund on June 30, 2011 onwards may we remind you of the following: 1. Submission of the Facilities Upgrade Deposit (FUD) duly endorsed by the holder of the certificate. The refund in the form of check will be made payable to the holder’s name indicated in the certificate. 2. Clearance for the textbooks to be accomplished the last day of school. 3. Full settlement of all outstanding balance on clearance day This does not apply to ADB and US Embassy sponsor students. Thank you for your cooperation.


Re‐Enrollment information for RETURNING STUDENTS for SY2011‐12 
Re‐Enrollment requirements for all returning students will include, minimally, submission of an updated Health Form  or Physical Form (depending on grade level) to the Clinic for a Clearance Signature and a Clearance Signature from the  Cashier’s Office on the Re‐Enrollment Form.    The Re‐Enrollment Form and other requested forms for each re‐enrolling student will be available by the beginning of  April  online  from  our  website  under  Admission  and  Re‐Enrollment  &  Withdrawal  or  at  the  Admission  Office  during  office hours (Monday to Friday; 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.).   Parents may pick up a set of Re‐Enrollment Forms personally  or your child can come to the Admission Office 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.   

For STUDENTS NOT RETURNING next school year (Does not apply to graduating seniors) 
If 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.      Parents  are  obliged  to  officially  inform  the  School  in  writing  on  a  WITHDRAWAL NOTIFICATION FORM, before the second Friday of May, if their children will be withdrawn.  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 Withdrawal Notification Form can be obtained from the Admission Office or from the ISM website  under the Admission tab and then click on Re‐Enrollment & Withdrawal.     We  currently  have  very  few  families  indicating  that  they  will  not  be  returning  and  consequently  there  are  an  ever  growing number of applicants in a WAITPOOL for possible openings.  This is causing great distress and anxiety in those  families (and in the Admission Office).  If you are sure that your child will be leaving ISM, please submit a Withdrawal  Notification Form.  This will be a great help for our planning and to the many families waiting to be admitted to the  school.  Thank you.    Regards,
