NEW INFORMATION FOR THIS WEEK

Parking Lot Safety

Friendly reminder regarding parent and student safety at end-of-the-day pickup. We’re hoping that you’ve noticed the Safeties, directing car and foot traffic, during dismissal each day.

Screen Shot 2018-08-12 at 10.12.09 PM

When picking up your child at 3:30, you are always more than welcome to park in the lot and walk to your child on the side of the building. We are asking that if you choose to do so, that you please only cross the line of pickup cars with the assistance of our Safeties! Yes, you may need to walk a few extra steps to cross at the front of the line, but this ensures everyone’s safety, AND sets a great example for your kiddos to only cross traffic when it is safe!

Shopping Amazon? Consider AmazonSmile!

Did you know that for every purchase you make on AmazonSmile, our school receives a donation? That’s right! AmazonSmile works EXACTLY like Amazon. Same great deals and shipping! When you login, be sure to select INNOVATIVE EDUCATION SERVICES as your designated organization and we will receive a percentage of each purchase. Easy!

OLD INFORMATION…Just in Case =)

Calendar for 2018-2019

18-19 Innocademy School Calendar

After School Enrichment

After School Enrichment runs everyday from 3:30-5:30pm. You can sign up ahead of time ($12 per day) with the link, below, or use it as an emergency drop in ($14). It’s available every day that we have full days of school; not on 1/2 days or professional development days or break weeks.

After School Enrichment Sign Up Link

Arrival

Students may arrive each morning at 8:35am. Please do not drop students off earlier. There is no playground supervision prior to 8:35am each day. To help everyone remember the drop off time, there are signs in the drop off area of the parking lot. At 8:35am each morning, our safeties will remove these signs so that you may drop students off.

Handicapped Parking Spaces

There are spaces next to the building on each side for those who need them. Unless you have a sticker, mirror tag or license plate indicating a need to park in those spaces, please park in the spaces located in the bigger lot areas – – even if you are intending to only be there for a quick minute. Thank you!

Dismissal

Students will be dismissed at 3:30pm each day. Please stay in your car and travel around the parking lots according to the map, below. If you choose to physically walk and retrieve your child, please park in the designated parking spaces and walk to your child – – it is super dangerous for parents to call to their child from the other side of the parking lot and ask them to sprint through cars. For the safety of our students and drivers, we ask that you do not do that.

Please read the map, carefully, to determine on which side of the building you will drop off and pick up your student.

Innocademy Dismissal Map

Construction Update

We have been working with M-DOT regarding the current construction. They have graciously agreed to work with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department to provide help during dismissal times each day. Yay! Sounds like things will look as they do, today, for the remainder of August. In September, they will be switching things up to work on the other side. We will update you about plans for October as we get closer, but please plan extra time to arrive and depart from school until Thanksgiving Break.

BRINGING LUNCH FROM HOME?

If you would like your kiddos to bring a lunch to school each day – GREAT! Please know that we are a COMPLETELY NUT FREE CAMPUS. We appreciate your help making sure all of our kiddos are safe. We do have a couple of microwaves available, however, there are often long lines for these. If you do send something to microwave, items that are mostly thawed are much appreciated! 7-8 minute meals should probably be consumed at home, if possible =).

You can send cash to school with your kiddos in a labeled envelope or make deposits online at sendmoneytoschool.com . If this is your first time setting up an account for your student, you will need his/her ID number. I’m happy to look that up for you if you shoot me an email request leisa.lobbezoo@icademyglobal.org ! All online deposits through sendmoneytoschool.com are charged a fee.
FREE/REDUCED LUNCH – Please don’t skip this paragraph – everyone needs to read it! =)
