Parent Representatives to Board 

ICS’ Parent Representatives help to ensure that our families have a way to connect to the governance of the school and that Board members have a window into the life and concerns of our parent community. If you have general feedback for the Parent Reps, please reach out via email.

Please note that emails will be checked weekly. If you need immediate assistance or have a student specific concern, please contact Pr. Kristen at kristenl@icscharter.com.

COVID-19 Dashboard 2021-2022

Announcements regarding quarantining will only be sent to impacted families moving forward. However, you may visit ICS’s COVID-19 Dashboard at any time to view the current COVID-19 case count. Please click here for the current COVID-19 testing and exposure protocols.


During the month of September, we allowed a grace period of not marking students late for families to get used to the 8:00 start time. This month, we began marking students late when they arrive after 8:00.

We strongly recommend that you support your child in arriving at school no later than 7:55 every morning (no later than 7:40 if your child needs to eat breakfast). Late arrivals are disruptive both to your child’s routine and to the routines of their classroom.

For more information about attendance policies, always direct all attendance questions or concerns to attendance@icscharter.com
