Updated and important new information about the AISF 2014-2015 School Year and campus opening.
Dear AISF Parents
The Board of Directors for the American International School of Freetown (AISF) has been following the development of the Ebola outbreak in Sierra Leone and based on recent facts, has concluded that further to its first message, the postponement period for the opening of our school needs to extended to January 2015.
The decision was to be revisited by October 1st but we felt we owed it to our community to give all a chance to make alternate plans for the first quarter. We strongly believe at this point that this time frame will allow the Government and International Agencies to contain the Ebola outbreak and provide the country with a safe environment for our community and our children.
We understand that some families may be disappointed by our decision but student safety is our priority and we do not feel that we can guarantee their well being before that time frame .
We will keep on updating you as frequently as possible over the next few weeks and months. However, please do not hesitate to contact us should you wish for further information and clarification.
