Important Notices for All Parents

Campus Access Policy

Campus Access Policy

In a continual effort to ensure the safety and security of our students, families and staff we wanted to make sure everyone was clear and up-to-date on our Campus Access Policy.  Please see the attached HERE.

A few highlights:

  • The ICS campus is open from 7:30 AM – 5:30 PM on regular school days and from 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM on weekends. Students remaining after 3:30 PM on school days are expected to be in a supervised activity. Students not in a supervised activity will be taken to the bench near security until they are picked up.
  • EC-G8 students must be supervised at all times by an adult on weekends and after hours, unless participating in an ICS sponsored event.
  • Only the following areas are open on weekends:
    • Cafeteria and community commons areas
    • ES basketball court
    • Track
    • Library (Saturday mornings ONLY)
    • Upper ES playground (next to the basketball court)
    • KG playground

We feel strongly that this policy supports the best interests of our students and facilities. We appreciate your cooperation if following the Campus Access Policy.  It will be enforced in full over the next couple of weeks.

If you have any questions, please contact communications@icsaddis.edu.et
