AISM “Year of the Zebra” Parents,

October 5, 2017

RE:

  • Anticipated Traffic Congestion, Delays, and Road Closures for Friday, October 6th, 2017.
  • Classes suspended tomorrow, October 6th, 2017. 
  • Jupiter Learning Protocol implemented.  

AISM Parents,

As announced last month, this year, the American International School of Monrovia has adopted the Jupiter-online learning portal. This was put in place in the event that traffic congestion and delays during this year’s election period make transport to the school challenging and/or inaccessible.

Our goal is to ensure that we have a safe and appropriate learning environment here at AISM.   

The School Crisis Management Team, and I, have been receiving multiple reports of an election rally tomorrow that will make traffic to and from school challenging. The CMT Team has determined it is “more likely than not” that this rally will have an impact on our students being able to safely travel to and from AISM tomorrow.  As a result, we will suspend school and not hold classes.

We have invested significant time and resources to establish our Jupiter online learning protocols.  Tomorrow, we will put our system to use, and students will use a blended learning model for instruction delivery.

After our drill last month, we are pleased to announce that 98% of our parents and students combined have logged into Jupiter.

Tips for using Jupiter Blended Learning:

  • You must use the school website - www.aismonrovia.com - to click on the Jupiter learning Portal.
  • Check messages/inbox, to do list, grades, and calendar. 
  • Full protocol instructions are on the website, under the “Safety Manual” tab.

Please note: the school will be on Columbus Recess next week; classes will resume on Thursday, October 12th.  This is a scheduled recess, and the Jupiter online protocol will not be in place. Enjoy a well-deserved school recess!!

As a final reminder, please anticipate additional traffic congestion, and transport delays, during the election period. Please be sure to allow extra time for transport.  Each afternoon, we will have staff on campus until the very last student gets picked up (We even have some food and water in strategic reserve for them).

As part of our blended learning protocol, teachers will post their online activities by 10:00am.

Enjoy a great day of 21st century blended learning tomorrow, and a relaxing Columbus recess.

See you on Thursday, October 12th.

Jeff
