Thank you to the families that checked lost and found for your child’s missing belongings. We have made a significant decrease in the amount of items in lost and found. All items not picked up by November 22nd will be donated to a local charity.
The directive to close schools comes from the office of the superintendent of Hopkins Schools. All local stations announce school closings for Hopkins Schools in the morning before school opens and announce early dismissals due to developing severe weather. ISLA will not be named individually. We are included in the announcement obout Hopkins School District #270. If there is a question as to the possibility of school being closed, please tune your radio to WCCO or other local news stations. The major local TV stations run a continuous print-out across the bottom of the screen to keep you informed on school closings. You can also sign up for e-mail notification regarding closings at the following site: http://wcco.com/schoolclosings.
Please avoid calling the school during this extremely busy time.
It is time to wear warm jackets, hats, mittens and boots and snow pants.Students go outside every day for recess unless it is raining or the outside air temperature is less than 0º or the windchill is -0º or below. Exercise and physical activity helps children release their muscle tension after several hours in school and contributes to overall wellness, including cardiovascular and muscular strength and endurance. Recess also provides an opportunity for students to play and relax outdoors and to socialize.
Make sure that your child receives the sibling enrollment priority they are entitled to at ISLA. Submit an online student application for the sibling of a currently enrolled student by the sibling enrollment deadline of February 14,, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. Any student applications for a sibling received after the deadline will follow regular enrollment processes.
