US Embassy School Bus Details: Reminder

If your child/ren take the US Embassy School Bus home from school, please be sure to keep drivers informed when your child/ren are to take the bus home. Many times drivers are delayed looking for children and they find that they have already been picked up or are not at school. This causes delays for everyone.

Thank you for your consideration.


New Website will be launched soon!

We have been making updates and upgrades to the ICS Website and we will launch the new site soon.
