We understand that your first week at a new school can be a little overwhelming. When and where is drop off, what are the rules around vehicle / pedestrian access and so on. Here is some information to help make your first week smoother. And remember, no question is ever silly, so if you are lost on campus (or just feel lost), ask one of our staff for help.
We do take security seriously at CIS, so make sure you register early for your parent ID cards as you’ll need to present your ID when you come onto campus. If you don’t have your ID with you, you will need to present a form of official identification (or a letter from admissions) to gain access to our campus.
If you’re going to be driving, you can register your vehicle and get a car decal. You’ll need to give us your number plate details (both campuses) and your vehicle’s IU number (Lakeside only - this is the serial number from the small black device that sits on the drivers side of your cars dashboard) so we can register your vehicle.
As we currently have procedures in place to safeguard against COVID, please review the additional procedures on this page.
Arrival and departure
We have procedures in place at both campuses, so please review this information to understand how it works. If you have a child going into kindergarten or primary, your child’s teachers will let you know more in the first week of school.
Each family is provided with 3 Parent ID cards at no cost when they join the school. ID cards for helpers and caregivers will bear the designation of “Parent” as they are deemed to be the parents’ representative.
Additional or replacement cards can be obtained from the school at a cost of $20.00 per card. You can order additional cards here.
All Parent ID cards must be returned to the school when your last child leaves CIS. Failure to return the cards may result in either your child’s report card/transcripts and/or your refundable family deposit being withheld.
