All IMS schools will be closed on Thursday, 11/1. On that day, school personnel will be practicing important network-wide safety protocols and procedures to ensure our buildings remain secure environments and that our staff fully understand what to do in case of an emergency. While each school has their own policies and practices for emergency measures, this year we are investing in network-wide practices that will be unified across all 15 of our schools. We believe this will add an additional layer of security and safety for all our schools. As a reminder, all schools will also be closed on Friday, 11/2 for professional learning for teachers. We apologize for the inconvenience but hope you understand the importance of these learning opportunities for our school staff.
