FUN AT IAC THIS WEEK…
Sometimes it takes a great deal of effort to eliminate distractions for kiddos AND teachers during Zoom lesson time! Thank you for trying to provide a distraction-free environment for your child(ren) to learn.
ABSENT FROM A SCHEDULED ZOOM MEETING?
Just as if your child were attending in person learning, attendance is taken twice each day. The attendance is recorded each day during Zoom meetings with teachers. We must report his is information to the State of Michigan. If your child will be absent from one of those meetings, please email us at email@example.com.
COVID POSITIVE DIAGNOSIS?
In the event your child receives a positive COVID diagnosis, please make sure to contact us, immediately. We must continue to update the COVID transparency page on our website and be able to work with the health department in their contact tracing efforts.
REMINDER – EARLY DISMISSAL ON DECEMBER 11TH
This Friday, Dec. 11th, is a previously scheduled Early Release Friday for our teachers to continue growing professionally. We will honor that, and you will see that your children will not have any live Zoom meetings or classwork on Seesaw/Google Classroom for the afternoon. Enjoy a lighter day!
LEARNING FROM HOME WEBPAGE
Please continue to check the LEARNING FROM HOME WEBPAGE for current schedules and recorded lessons.
REMOTE LEARNING RE-EVALUATION ON DECEMBER 17TH
As a reminder, you will be receiving a communication from us no later than December 18th regarding the extension of Remote Learning or the return to in-person, onsite learning.
You will undoubtedly notice a discrepancy in the modality of learning that districts around West Michigan are choosing – remote learning or in person. Each district is working with the health department to make informed decisions based on their own staffing and safety concerns. At this time, Innocademy is continuing to “stay the course” of Remote Learning.
BREAKFAST and LUNCH PICK UP
During remote learning, families can pick up a week’s worth of breakfast and lunch for their children at the front of the Fennville Elementary School from 4:00 – 5:00 every Thursday.
The Fennville District Library has mifis available to checkout on a weekly basis. (The checkout duration can be extended.) All you need is a library card. If you don’t have a library card, they will be happy to help you get one. Please let Marty know if you need any help with contacting the library. In addition, internet access can be accessed in our school parking lot. Please reach out to Marty for the password if you’re interested in using it.
FEEDING AMERICA MOBILE FOOD DISTRIBUTION
Mark your calendar and share these dates with friends and neighbors! Feeding America Mobile Food Distribution takes place in the Roosevelt Elementary of Zeeland Public Schools in the west parking lot. This is a drive-thru, no contact distribution. All are welcome. No income guidelines or proof of residency required. Questions can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The event runs 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm on:
- December 8

ANYONE can be part of the ski club…student, parent, family friend.
