Hard to believe that it has been 19 years since 9/11/2001. Guessing we can each remember, vividly, the intricate details of our own lives as we, together with the rest of our nation, witnessed the awful events unfold in front of us on that day.
Continue to look for regular communication from Mr. Bob and, in the meantime, if you have any questions or needs, reach out to him directly. Bob.Soulliere@iesschools.org

VISITORS TO THE BUILDING
Thank you for adhering to the Michigan Return to School Roadmap Guidelines and not entering the building with your students each day. If/when there is a time your child will be late or needs to leave early, please…
- Communicate as normal with your child’s classroom teacher and/or Ms. Heidi
- When you arrive, communicate with Ms. Heidi through the intercom on the outside of the building
- Wait for your child outside – in the event of inclement weather, please wait for your student in the vestibule, between the double doors, but do not enter the lobby.
NUT FREE SCHOOL
We do have several students with severe nut allergies; both peanut and tree nut. In an effort to keep everyone safe, please do not send food containing nuts of any sort – or traces of nuts to school. Soy butter and Sun butter are great alternatives.
IMPORTANT – PARKING LOT REMINDERS
Thank you for observing super slow speeds and driving through the parking lots with extreme caution as we aim to protect our sweet kiddos and families.
Please remember that we do have several families who are in need of handicapped parking spaces on the sides of the building closest to the doors. It is critical that we keep these spaces free for them at all times. If you park in the lot, please always use the spaces within the lot, itself.
Please see the map below for traffic flow in each lot. In the interest of student safety and the sheer number of vehicles traveling through at arrival and dismissal times, it is CRITICAL that we follow the ONE WAY traffic flow at all times.Innocademy-Dismissal-MapDownload
