Weekly News, 9/6

The MMS Parent Portal should now allow parents to create new accounts and/or receive password reset information.

For those families who access meal accounts through the MMS portal, the cafeteria account link inside MMS is still not functioning properly.

Change to the 2016-2017 Calendar

Due to the timing of the PSSAs this year, the 2nd trimester report card conference date has been changed. The new date for spring report card conferences is Friday, March 24. There will be no school for students that day. April 7 will be a regular day of school. This change is reflected on our school calendar.

Staff Directory on Website

The staff directory is up on the website. I am still working on finding/adding photos for all staff and will be adding more photos over the next few weeks. This version of the directory is temporary until we make some upgrades to our site and can replace it with a searchable directory. For now, you have to scroll through the names, which are organized alphabetically by first name. (Or use the ever-handy Ctrl-F to search on a desktop view.)

Meet Nurse Simone!

This year we welcome Nurse Simone Merrique as our School Nurse. Her hours are 8am-3:30pm.

She will be sending 2016-2017 Health Info Forms home with students soon. This is general health information about each student that we ask families to update for us every school year. If you would like to complete yours now instead of waiting for your paper copy, it is available here. They can be returned via your child’s homework folder.

If you have questions for Nurse Simone, please feel free to email her.

PTA Playground Fridays & Tuesdays

Starting this Friday, on Fridays and Tuesdays (when it is above 50 degrees and it is not raining) the PTA opens up the ICS playground for families to play after school from 3:40-4:30. If you would like to join the fun, the PTA will let you into the play yard at 3:40 when dismissal is over. All children must be accompanied and directly supervised by an adult at all times.

Custody Documentation

If there have been any recent changes to your children’s custody arrangements, please make sure that ICS has the most updated court documentation on file by contacting Teacher Jenny at 215-238-8000, x2500.
