CHECK THE TIME
The Government of Mongolia cancelled the switch to Daylight Savings Time. Due to this decision, time setting of smartphones, tablets, laptops and other smart devices may now be one hour out of synchronization. They might have changed according to current automatic time-zone configurations set for these devices. If so, they may have moved forward by one hour.
Please check the time settings on all of your smart devices on March 25th. You may need to re-set the time to "Standard" time.
The International School of Ulaanbaatar provides a bus service for our students if they live inside the bus route boundaries. The boundaries are set as follows: South end – Green Villa in Zaisan, west end – Golomt town, north end – School #5, east end is District 15.
Our contractor “Nomads” company provides us with vehicles and experienced drivers.
If you request the bus service for your children we will choose the nearest possible place to pick up your children in the morning and take them back to the same stop after school. If your children have co-curricular activities (CCA) they will be taken home after the activities.
In the beginning of the school year, you may indicate your request for the bus service in our application form. We review your request and we will notify you with a letter that tells you the time and stop where your children would be picked up and dropped off.
PLEASE Note that due to the busy traffic we cannot guarantee that the drop off time will be accurate. This means your child's riding home time may be longer that an hour.
The school bus will start dropping off students from the stops nearest to the school.
Also buses do not have supervisors so if you are parents of pre-kindergarten student you need to know that your child will ride the bus with older students.
If you join ISU after school year starts, and would like to request the bus service you need to fill in the request for the bus service form (this can be collected from the receptionist) and we will inform you whether the bus service for your location and/or if a seat in the bus is available.
