November 1, 2016
Hello ICS Parents & Families –
SEPTA services continue to be suspended due to the strike.
A couple of items for our students and families who use SEPTA:
- ICS will work with students who arrive late. Students who usually use SEPTA and arrive late will not be marked late.
- Please keep us updated on your child’s attendance.
- We will continue to monitor the situation. In the event of an extended strike, ICS will assist students & families in what ways we can, such as facilitating communication about carpooling options.
- We will update everyone with more information as necessary.
- Be safe!
