This year ISLA staff welcomes approimately 370 students and 20 El Nido Pre-K students to our new building.
We missed the mark yesterday in terms of pickup, and I am very sorry for any inconvenience that it caused you. Similar to many other districts right now, we are having problems with transportation, pickup, and traffic. We have revised our plans accordingly and will be able to implement them fully on Monday. Today will not be perfect, but it will be better.
While yesterday's pickup yesterday was not ideal, I would like to apologize for the long wait and point out that drop off is actually working quite well. Today, our last car in line dropped off at 9:23, just 3 minutes after the start of the day. 5 out of 7 of our buses are arriving on time, and we are working with the company on these issues.
Pickup Plan as of Monday, September 13:
The Spirit Store is now open through Sunday, September 19. Get your uniform-approved shirts and sweatshirts to be in style for this school year. Please note in the order comments your child’s name and grade.

Did you know that the Spirit Store is a fundraiser for the PTO? Your purchase of uniform-approved shirts and sweatshirts will help support PTO sponsored events such as the back to school picnic, provide funds for classroom supplies and extra-curricular scholarships, and also supports the LA program.

ISLA Families Support
This year the ISLA PTO donated $6800 to cover the student fees for the red folders, agendas, and classroom parties (fiesta). All grades, all classrooms, and all students were covered! No payments needed from families. We wish all families and students a great school year!
ISLA Staff Support
Last week the PTO delivered a bunch of healthy snacks and drinks to ISLA staff to welcome them back and keep them energized through Meet the Teacher and the start of school! We appreciate all their hard work to get the new building ready to welcome ISLA families! We wish all staff a great school year!
ISLA Community Building
Lots of friendly faces came to the annual Yahoo/Boohoo events this year! Thank you to the Caribou Coffee at 5125 Edina Industrial Blvd for donating the coffee and bagels and BI Worldwide for sharing their parking lot (due to the ISLA construction). We loved seeing all those that could make it! Let us know if you'd like another time to connect soon!
