Bus Options

While the Repulse Bay campus does not mandate bus riding at 4:00pm, it is highly encouraged whenever possible. The 4:00pm bus number can be found on your child's bag tag, it is the number contained in the square on the right hand side.
Please note - that your child is only eligible to ride the 4:00pm bus listed on their bag tag. Bus to bus changes are not permitted at 4pm. 

Do I need to make a bus change request to attend a 3:00 pm Activity?

For 3:00 p.m. Repulse Bay Activities, located at HKIS:

There is no need to submit a bus change for these activities. The classroom teacher is made aware of all student activity schedules on a daily basis through the activities database. Using this information the students will be transitioned into the care of the activity providers.

  • After class activity providers will escort students to their 4 p.m. buses in Repulse Bay.
  • Please ensure that you provide your child's 4:00pm dismissal details to the Activity Office and your activity provider. Please note that students are only allowed to ride the 4pm bus listed on their bag tag.
  • If your child is unable to attend his/her scheduled 3 p.m. class, but your child is at school that day. You must email the Activities Office at activities@hkis.edu.hk and copy the classroom teacher at least 48 hours in advance or your child may be transferred to the scheduled activity.

For 4:00 p.m. Repulse Bay Activities, located at HKIS:

Students who are registered in a 4:00pm paid activity, late Strings or Band will be eligible to register for and attend after school care (ASC) while they wait for their activity. Students will be dismissed from their class and should report to the assigned indoor area for After School Care where they will register their attendance with the care supervisor. These students will be dismissed 5 minutes before their scheduled 4:00pm activity.

Students who are not registered in a 3:00pm Activity or After School Care: cannot remain at school for any reason (e.g. to play, to wait to be picked up, etc.). Students must go home upon dismissal.

For Tai Tam Activities, located at HKIS that cater to Lower & Upper Primary students:

  •  Parents must submit a end of school day bus change request through the online system at the following Link.
  • These students should be met by an authorised adult and escorted to their activity. I strongly recommend that you do not ask an activity provider to collect students on your behalf. The bus does not normally arrive before 3:30pm

For Off-Campus Activities - including those provided by companies that also operate at HKIS.

  • Parents must submit a end of school day bus change request through the online system at the following Link.
  • These students should be met by an authorised adult and escorted to their activity. I strongly recommend that you do not ask an off-campus activity provider to collect students on your behalf.

For One off Playdates:

Parents must submit a end of school day bus change request through the online system at the following Link to arrange for students to ride home together for playdates. However, please note that If your child would normally attend a 3 p.m. activity that day, this change request will override their activity schedule.

  • Please email the Activities Office (activities@hkis.edu.hk) and copy in the classroom teacher noting the change once you receive your confirmation of the change from the bus coordinator at least 24 hours in advance to avoid any confusion.

Please note that your requests will normally be processed within 24 hours and that a bus change or dismissal change is not confirmed unless you receive written confirmation
