NOTES

MTÜ membership 

Our school/preschool operates in the form of a non-profit association (MTÜ) and according to the articles of the MTÜ, the parents of the students may become the members of the MTÜ. Only members are eligible to vote at the AGM (Annual General Meeting) and EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting). All ISE families who have not yet signed a petition for MTÜ membership are encouraged to do so. Only one parent per family can become a member. Please download the application (available in Estonian, English, and Russian) here, fill it in, sign it, and send the hard copy it to the office. You can also send your application by email to Ms. Katre Pohlak in the ISE office at admin@ise.edu.ee, but only if you can digitally sign it using Estonian ID-card. It is important to send in the application prior to October 17, 2018, if you want to be able to vote at the AGM because the MTÜ Board will have to approve all applications for the membership to become active. The AGM will take place in November, the exact date is to be announced shortly.
The information about the membership in Estonian and Russian is available here.


Daily bell schedule and 2018-19 calendar


Please find the daily bell schedule here and school year 2018-19 here.



Reflectors


When venturing out in the dark, take a cue from the locals and wear a reflector. It is a small piece of plastic or fabric that makes pedestrians visible to oncoming traffic. The concept was first invented in 1934 by British road worker Percy Shaw, who was inspired by the reflective qualities of cats' eyes. Virtually all children and over two-thirds of local adults wear reflectors, largely due to a 2011 law that requires their use in darkness and conditions of poor visibility. Please note that the traffic police may issue a fine if you do not wear a reflector. ISE reflectors can be bought from the school office for 3€ a piece.
