School attendance is mandatory everyday OIS is in session. A student will be considered “in attendance” if he/she is off campus formally representing the school while participating in a school-initiated activity.
Students are encouraged to arrive on time for school, at or just prior to 8:15. A tardy may be excused if a doctor’s note or other official documentation is provided. Students who are tardy are required to report to the school office to obtain a late pass before entering class. Excessive absences, tardiness, and early check-outs will be documented in the class register. A parent meeting is required with the principal on the fifth unlawful tardy before the student is admitted to class.
We invite parents to come to campus to eat with their children or take them out to lunch, but parents must come to the office first to sign out their child before taking them. Please ensure that your child is back on campus by the end of lunch as dictated by your child’s daily schedule. If you are coming to the school to eat with your child here, please enter through the office and inform the administration and classroom teacher that you will be staying for lunch.
The children are expected to be in attendance the entire day to benefit from the educational environment. If it becomes necessary to check a child out, the parent or the person who has been designated will have to provide a written, signed notice of such. Excessive check-outs will be addressed by the principal or his/her designee. A parent must complete a form to designate who may check out his/her child. A person checking out a child must show to know the child and report to the office first before proceeding to the child’s class.

Tuition and other Fees for 2022 – 2023
Registration fee (non-refundable)
A non-refundable fee is required yearly at the time of registration for all grade levels (K -8). Registration for grades K-6 is US$ 625.00. Registration for grades 7-8 is US$750.00. This fee will be fully transferred to the Learning Material Fund which is intended to cover the costs of books, workbooks, support materials for instruction and related technology hardware/software, which will enhance the student’s learning process throughout the school year. No exemptions are made in the payment of the registration fee.
All OIS students are covered by insurance provided by Nagico. The cost of this insurance is US $25 per school year and is included in the registration fee. Insurance covers Accidental Death or Dismemberment up to $5000 USD and Accidental Injury up to $500 USD.
A school needs to plan for its human and physical resources on an annual basis. This planning is based on student enrollment and school fees. The tuition is set for the year and per term. In order to facilitate parents, payments though may be made in monthly installments. Parents who like to withdraw their child from school need to inform the school well in advance (at least 3 months). If a child is withdrawn half-way through the term without prior knowledge of OIS, tuition fees will not be waived for the remainder of the term.
Payment of Fees – Guidelines
All school tuition fees are due by the published dates; in general this means that all tuition should be paid by the third of the month, except for the first payment at the start of the school year (which is due September 10th rather than September 3rd). If payment is not received on the indicated date a late fee will be added, which is currently set at $50.00. A returned cheque is considered as a late payment. Where fees remain unpaid after 30 days further attendance of students shall be denied. Reports and school records will be withheld pending full payment on any outstanding accounts.
Only payment of the registration fee (see below) will secure a place for the new school year.
The cost of uniforms and general school supplies appropriate for each grade level shall be the responsibility of the parents. The list of school supplies can be obtained from the Office Administrator. Books, related software and other supplementary learning materials are intended to be covered by the yearly registration fee, which will be transferred to the Learning Material Fund. Field trips, external examinations, damaged or lost books are not covered by the registration fee, or tuition fee.
For families with more than one child in the school there are discounts for the 2nd and 3rd child (in case of 4th and 5th child the same discount as 3rd child applies). The discount is always applied to the youngest child.
Discounted fees are:
– 2nd child: 20% discount
– 3rd child: 30% discount
