Contracts due for next year!
To reserve your child(ren)'s place at IWS, please submit your contract online and bring in your check to the office this week! 

Safety in the Spring
Please walk on the mulched paths, and use the "crosswalk" to cross over through the split-rail fence to enter the school yard.  It is extremely dangerous to walk within the parking lot, as multiple cars and busses are moving along the way.  Also, please do not park in any bus or fire lanes - see us in the office if you need an updated map!

Staying after school
We LOVE having families stay after school, but please be aware that you are responsible for supervising your child unless s/he has been registered for AfterSchool care. Once your child has been dismissed by his/her class teacher, please proceed to the playground behind the school (NOT the EC play yard), as the front deck and EC yard are often crowded and it can be confusing for young children waiting to meet their parents.
