Director's Dispatch: Starting the 2022-23 School Year


Dear Parents, I wish to send a welcome to the 2022-2023 school year to you all. As we begin the school year next week, on Thursday August 18th, we will have more than 760 students at school. Among those, we have 190 new students, so there are many new faces in our community. It is wonderful that we can be fully in person, with mask wearing being optional, after more than two years of school being impacted by the COVID pandemic.

Yesterday our faculty returned to campus from their summer break, and the buzz was palpable. Our educators are excited to meet their students, and engage in learning. As you may know, this is my first year here as Director. I am delighted to be here in Dakar, leading an incredible school and community. I look forward to seeing you on campus and to getting to know you. More detailed information about the start of school was sent out on Monday through the Jag Journal. Please send us an email at communications@faculty.isd.sn if you didn't the Jag Journal.
