September 11 is a somber day across our nation, as we remember the lives lost in the attack on the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and United Flight 93. Today, on the 14th anniversary of these tragic events, we encourage our students, staff, families, and neighbors to consider the indelible impact left on our country and to embrace a culture of unity and collaboration.
As we share the historical significance of this date with our students, we take this opportunity to thank and honor the men and women of the armed forces for their patriotism and commitment to keeping us safe. We thank our employees who are veterans and reserve members, as they are champions in our community through their service to our country and our students. We also honor our local law enforcement officers and first responders, who put their lives on the line daily to maintain safety in our neighborhoods. IPS appreciates your invaluable service and support!
