The Owl 9/27

The Rain is Here: Please prepare accordingly!

Please make sure that you student is dressed to be outside – rain or shine!
All students in grades Kinder -5 will have lunch and snack outdoors, and ALL students head outside multiple times every day!  We have identified outdoor covered spaces for students, with more tents to come. Outside lunches will be shorter than the usual 30 minutes, but we need to do what we can to keep them safe and healthy.
Please ensure that your child is prepared to be outdoors. As the old saying goes: “No such thing as bad weather…just bad clothing.” 
In addition, dismissal tends to run a little slower in serious downpours like today. We appreciate your patience as we get everyone safely to where they need to be!




New ISP Spirit Store! What do YOU want to see?

Speaking of clothing….New logos, new name, NEW STUFF!   A new, improved ISP Spirit store is coming soon!
The ISP Parent Network wants to make sure that we offer what YOU want! What are you hoping to get from the spirit wear store? Drop us a line and let us know what you’d like to see for your kiddo – and for yourself!
