Hi ICS families,

It is getting colder! Make sure your children’s outerwear is clearly labeled with their first and last names. When items like coats and hats get lost they will often make their way back to you if it’s easy to find the owner’s name on it.

Next Friday, November 12th, ALL lost and found items will be displayed outside the cafeteria to be claimed. If your child has lost any personal items, please remind them to check next Friday!

Application for 2022-2023 School Year

The lottery application for new students for the 2022-2023 school year is available on our website through January 24, 2022.

If you have a student who qualifies for sibling preference (siblings must share a legal parent/guardian and share a household, and one sibling must be attending ICS at time of lottery drawing), you must apply using the lottery application, and you must apply by the January 24 deadline. Click here to access Apply Philly Charter!


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
