A quick guide to your first week at CIS

School bus:

***IMPORTANT***  There will be NO BUS on the morning of Sunday, August 30.  For safety reasons Emirates Transport has decided to start the bus service on Sunday afternoon.  After school on Sunday the bus attendant/monitor will call you to confirm the bus number and provide their contact number before they leave school.  Emirates Transport have told us that no buses will leave the school grounds until the parents have been contacted. 


Bus Registration:

We have been asked by Emirates Transport to ensure we have a current registration form for all bus students.  IF YOU HAVE NOT COMPLETED A 2015/2016 BUS REGISTRATION FORM, PLEASE Click here.  Completed forms should be returned to kjane@cisabudhabi.com.  The bus company will call you regarding pick up and drop off times.


SCHOOL CAFETERIA     Please note that the opening of the new cafeteria at CIS has been delayed.  Students will need to bring in a packed lunch for the first few weeks.
