The academic year session 2 begins on Tuesday, October 13.

The deadline to change student learning preferences for session 2 and register students for non-academic programs offered during the session is Friday, September 25.


STEP 1: DETERMINE THE LEARNING DELIVERY PREFERENCE FOR YOUR STUDENT(S)
a) There is no action required for this step, if a student's learning delivery preference will remain the same.
 
b) A COVID-19 Liability Release Form must be completed, if a student will be switching his/her preference to in-person learning.
 

c) A Request for Remote Learning Form must be completed, if a student will be switching his/her preference to remote learning. Families that designate the remote learning preference for Session 2 will be locked into this option until the close of the session on Friday, December 18.

STEP 2: CONSIDER YOUR CHILD CARE OR EXTENDED SUPERVISION SERVICE NEEDS AND CONFIRM REGISTRATION
a) There is no action required for this step, if families registered for service for the entirety of the first semester of the academic year. A list of families registered for the full semester is available for those who may want to verify their status.
 
  • only registered for Session 1 services and need to re-enroll for Session 2
  • are looking to add the service for the first time in Session 2

IMPORTANT CHANGE FOR SESSION TWO: Lower School student pick up time is from 2:50 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. during Session 2. Families unable to pick up students by 3:30 must register for after-school care. Student supervision outside of the child care service will not be made available after 3:30 p.m. in the Lower School.

High School: for Session 2 in high school, only winter varsity sports will participate in interscholastic competition. 
 
Middle School: for Session 2 in middle school, sports participation will continue only as an intramural program. 
 
A Session 2 athletics information session will be hosted on Wednesday, September 16. Athletics department leadership will discuss important topics for both high school and middle school athletics participation, including: 
  • how COVID-19 will impact team participation across grade levels;
  • how the interscholastic high school teams will be managed to protect the health and safety of players and the ISI community;
  • information on how to register, related deadlines and fees.
