Open Door Policy
As a school community, we strive to resolve issues directly between the individuals concerned wherever possible, modeling respect for each other. As a means of support to MIS families, the doors of all administrators are always open to assist in the process of resolving issues or to talk over questions or concerns you may have about the school and its policies. The Chairman welcomes comments, complaints or compliments.
During school hours teachers are unable to leave the children to receive calls. If you would like to communicate with your child, call the office and leave a message. If it is an emergency, please contact the office and staff will get a message to your child’s teacher immediately.
MIS will have a Weekly Messenger by email every week during the academic year, to include upcoming event information, important school notices, and information about recent happenings in the school. Paper newsletters will be sent by your child's academic division, and will include a message from the Division Head, as well as classroom updates, events, activities, and photographs. This newsletter will also be available in digital form.

- Either one or both parents being away from home for any reason for an extended time
- Illness or hospitalization within the family
