Congratulations to all Staff and Students!
Please know that we have just installed a Raptor Security System at AIS. For visits that are longer than just picking up and dropping off, parents will be asked for a driver's license or ID to provide to our safety advocate. This is an added security measure. Please know this may take an additional few minutes. However, the safety and wellbeing of all students is our preeminent concern.
