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. 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 2020 – 2021
Registration fee (non-refundable)
A US $ 625.00 non-refundable fee is required yearly at the time of registration for all primary grade levels (K -6). 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.
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 the term without prior knowledge of the OIS Board, 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. 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 first installment of the tuition fee and 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, tuition fee or the Learning Material Fund contribution.
Monthly tuition fees are payable by post-dated cheques or standing orders ONLY.
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 related to the youngest child! So, in case there is one child in primary and one in kindergarten, the discount is calculated on the kindergarten fee.
Discounted fees are: – 2nd child: 20% discount – 3rd child: 30% discount
Installments should be made payable to “Omololu International School”
This can be completed by various ways: Direct Deposit or Cheque. Upon completion of payment, a copy of the deposit slip needs to be submitted to the Office Administrator as proof of payment.
If payment by cheque is the chosen payment option; all post-dated cheques need to be handed in by the start of the new school-year (September 01st). The cheques are to be dated per month from: September 3rd through June 3rd, no installments are paid in July and August. A returned cheque will be considered as a late payment.
Cash payment at the school
will under no circumstances be accepted. Cash deposits can be done in the form of a direct deposit into the school’s bank account; a copy of the deposit slip should be handed over to the Office Administrator.
Payments can be made by selecting one of the three payment plans. Tuition fees have to be paid at the start of the school year, term or at the beginning of the month dependent on the selected option.
