(Posted 7:50am Fri Sept 14th) Please note due to Signal 1 being raised in Metro Manila and expected deteriorating weather all after school activities will be cancelled Friday Sept 14th. Students should make their way home as soon as classes end.

We have had a fantastic start with activities and we hope this will continue until the end of the semester!

You may still see what activities are still open at the ACTIVITY OFFERINGS list.

IMPORTANT DATES may be found here: DATES TO REMEMBER

Please make sure to read the following guidelines for activities:

ACTIVITIES ATTENDANCE: Once a student has signed up, confirmed and is attending an activity, THEY MUST ATTEND EVERY SESSION. If the student won’t attend a particular session, the Activities office must be notified. You may notify us at 840-8485 or email us at afac@ismanila.org.

ONCE REGULAR CLASSES ARE OVER: Children not involved in an after school program are not permitted to remain on campus unsupervised after 2:30 p.m. They may only wait in the E.S. Canteen, Waiting Area, or the ES Library. They will need to obtain a library pass from the Campus Supervisor in the ES Canteen before they can proceed to the library.

Please note, all students who are not enrolled in an activity should proceed home directly.

If a student misses the bus or their ride has not arrived by 3:30, they may proceed to the ES Office to contact the parents.

FIRST WEEK OF ACTIVITIES:  Grade 2-4 students will be accompanied by their homeroom teachers to the ES Playground where the coaches will pick them up. The Activity instructors will then accompany students from the playground to their respective activity areas. Campus supervisors will be around the area to provide your child with further assistance.

Grade 1 students will be picked up by assigned coaches in their respective pillars at the Grade 1 hallway from the start until the end of Semester.

EARLY RELEASE DAYS: There will be no activities on early release days. Students must leave the campus at dismissal time.

TRANSPORTATION/DISMISSAL AFTER THE ACTIVITY: All students must take their scheduled bus. No activity extension will be allowed. If there will be changes in your child’s dismissal, please email the ES office (es@ismanila.org).

Grade 1 students after activities will be brought to the ES Kantina for pick up OR to the bus area (for bus riders) by their respective coaches. Grade 2-4 students for pick up will be dismissed at 3:15pm (3:10pm for bus riders) and make their own way to their pick up area/respective bus.

BAD WEATHER / CANCELLATION OF CLASSES: If a decision is made to close the school after students have arrived, and before school ends, students will stay until 2:00 pm. After School activities will then be cancelled, and students will generally be expected to proceed home at the first available opportunity.
