YOU ARE OUR VALENTINES!!
We LOVE our Ingleside teachers and students! To show our appreciation for our teachers, and our pride in our students' resiliency and flexibility this year, we have the following events sponsored by the PTO:
All teachers and support staff will have an afternoon of yogurt catered by Zoyo on February 17th. In addition, all teachers will receive a $50 bonus and a $50 gift card from a local restaurant that has supported us through the years. To sweeten the deal just a little more, we will have an envelope pull that will award 8 lucky teachers with an additional prize of $200! We can't thank our teachers enough for showing up everyday and giving their all, especially during this challenging year!
Attention all STUDENTS! You will receive a voucher from school to take to Zoyo to redeem after school until 9pm on your designated day to receive a yogurt paid for by the PTO up to $4. Students will be responsible for any difference exceeding that amount. Please note the following dates to ensure we comply with social distancing:
Wed Feb 10 - Sixth graders only will receive their voucher at school and may redeem it at Zoyo between the hours of 11:30am-9pm.
Thurs Feb 11 - Seventh graders only will receive their voucher at school and may redeem it at Zoyo between the hours of 11:30am-9pm.
Fri Feb 12 - Eighth graders only will receive their voucher at school and may redeem it at Zoyo between the hours of 11:30am-9pm.
The PTO is happy to have our teachers, support staff, and students as our Valentines this year!

Teacher Schedule for Extended Learning (updated) in afternoons is HERE.
Update your contact information in ParentVue HERE. (Click on My Account, and update phone numbers). The school must be able to reach you. Ensure they have your current info!
Encourage your child to use iReady. Great progress is seen in students who engage in their My Path lessons. Aim for 30-45min/week.
SAFETY CONCERN: Students are not using crosswalks at the end of the day. Some are funning across the street to get in parents' cars. There are some impatient drivers who drive around the waiting lines. Please encourage/insist that your child use crosswalks!
To limit the potential exposure to students and staff, no visitors are allowedon campus without an appointment. Please do not plan to drop off any items to campus at any point during the day. Students need to bring all necessary items with them each day. We appreciate your understanding of this new protocol.
