Good afternoon Lion Families!!!

Just want you to know we have not forgotten about you!!! 🙂

We are continuing to adjust to the evolving guidelines presented by state and local officials. We are working hard to ensure we create comprehensive plans to return to school for student and staff safely.

I am attaching the Student Supply List to this post. As lifted on the document, the items on the list are going to be for individual use ONLY. We will not be sharing classroom supplies to reduce interactions with students.

Additional information forthcoming:

Take care, stay safe, and please follow city health guidelines to ensure we can come together as a school community this school year!

Hello IPS Families and Staff:

When Indianapolis Public Schools reopens its’ doors Aug. 3 for the start of the 2020-21 school year, it is committed to ensuring schools are as safe as possible for students and staff. The decision to reopen schools was carefully made after reviewing guidance provided by the Indiana Department of Education, the Marion County Public Health Department, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, along with state and city leadership, as it relates to minimizing the spread of COVID-19.

Highlights of the plan include the following:

All staff and students in grades K-12 will be required to wear masks. Some exceptions will apply, and mask breaks will be included throughout the day. One reusable mask will be provided by the district to each student and staff member.
Social distancing of 3 to 6 feet will be required in all schools, including classrooms, hallways, restrooms, cafeterias, offices and on playgrounds.

There will be options for full-time in-person or full-time remote learning.

Individually wrapped/prepackaged meals will be served in cafeterias due to food safety and staffing. Times will be staggered to ensure proper social distancing. Students in grades K-8 will eat meals inside classrooms or in cafeterias where social distancing is possible. Student in grades 9-12 will eat inside school cafeterias.

Masks will be required on school buses. Monitors will be assigned to each bus to enforce health and safety protocols. Additional walk zones — with crossing guards — are being established to help decrease the number of students on buses.

School nurses and trained staff will also be on-site at all schools to screen students and staff who may be displaying COVID-19 symptoms. All IPS buildings will have a designated isolation room, and self-reporting and school-based reporting protocols have been created.

Schools will be equipped with touchless water fountains. Students will also receive a district-issued water bottle to keep at school. Manual water fountains will be turned off or blocked.

IPS will be a 1:1 district with every student receiving a device to support high quality learning both in school and at home. The district has invested in iPads for every student in grades K-2 and Chromebooks for students in grades 3-12. MiFi mobile hot spot devices will also be available for families who do not have internet access.

Before and afterschool care will continue to be provided through the YMCA, AYS and the Boys and Girls Club with safety and health protocols in place. Reach out to your child’s school for details.

Families who choose full-time remote learning are required to complete and submit the district’s Full-Time Remote Learning Registration Form. The deadline to complete the form is July 17.

To learn more about the full plan, go to the IPS Back to School webpage where you’ll find FAQs, a video hosted by Supt. Aleesia Johnson and much more.

Due to the many changes, as students and staff return to school and district buildings, you will notice a new look and feel in many areas of our operations.

Finally, we know you may have questions and district administrators are ready to help. IPS will host a virtual Family Town Hall Meeting Monday, July 13, at 6:30 p.m. via Zoom. Supt. Johnson and executive leadership team members will review the plan and answer questions. The meeting will also be livestreamed on the IPS Facebook page. You do not need an account to watch.
