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.
Congratulations to Mr. Calvanese for being named Danbury's Teacher of the Year for 2019!
