IES Updates 5-18-2020
Please remember there is no packet drop off on Monday, May 18. Instead, please join us on your assigned grade level day and time to pick up end of year awards, report cards, and a gift of summer reading material. This is also a chance for you to wave good-bye to your teachers and staff!
We ask that students remain in the vehicle and staff will safely deliver your packets with big waves! Unfortunately we will not able to host 5th grade or kindergarten graduation in June as we originally planned.

If you are not able to pick up the packet at the school; the packets will be delivered on the afternoon bus route on Thursday, May 28. An adult has to be visible during this drop off in order for us to leave the materials. If no one is visible during the drop off, you will need to schedule a time to pick the packet up from the school.
Our schedule will be as follows:
Wednesday, May 27 at IES:
11:00-12:00 – 1st & 2nd
12:00-1:00 – 3rd & 4th
1:00-2:00 – Kindergarten
2:00-3:00 –5th

Thursday, May 28 at IES:
10:00-11:00 – Kindergarten
11:00-12:00 – 5th
12:00-1:00 - 1st & 2nd
1:00-2:00- 3rd & 4th

IES would like to thank all of our parents and guardians for working and being flexible with us as we navigate through the school closure.

Please do not hesitate to call the school 276-773-2722 with any questions.
