Good morning IES families! Out of an abundance of caution, we will be shifting our Parent/Teacher conference format to ONLY a phone conference or a Zoom conference with your child’s teacher. If you have already scheduled your conference and planned to attend in person, please contact your child’s teacher to let him/her know whether you prefer a phone or Zoom conference, and he/she will provide you with the necessary information to facilitate a successful conference. Thank you! Link to update letter: https://bit.ly/3w8lqzz

Iroquois School District Community....... The threats received by the Iroquois School District today have been determined to be non- credible. The Lawrence Park Police Department is currently investigating these threats, but due to the manner in which they were delivered we are confident that our schools are safe. Additionally, the power outage we experienced was an isolated incident that had nothing to do with any threat towards the school. We are very fortunate that we were able to get power restored to the High School this evening, and all normal school operations will resume on Tuesday morning. As always, the safety of our students is our number one priority. We work very closely with the LPPD and other local authorities to protect our communities most important resource, our children

Iroquois Community, Early this afternoon the Iroquois High School lost most of its electrical power due an mechanical issue, the Administration made the decision to continue with the school day, without dismissing early. The buildings heating system was partially working, and restrooms were available for use. At approximately 1:40 pm we received a phone call, threatening a school shooting at the high school. At that time, we went into lock down, and LPPD sent officers to the high school. We will remain in lockdown for the remainder of the day. Students will be dismissed as soon as close to normal dismissal time with additional police presence. The police are investigating these threats, more information will be made available once the investigation is completed.

As of now, the district’s quarantine procedures have not been changed. We are awaiting more information and direction from the Erie County Department of Health before we make a recommendation to the School Board regarding shortened quarantine requirements. As always, we appreciate your support dealing with the constant changes that COVID has brought to our lives and the way the school district operates. Please remember that all our decisions are based on one keeping our students and staff safe, while doing everything we can to keep our schools open for live in-person instruction. We are facing staffing shortages in most areas, we are in critical need of substitute teachers, non-instructional aides, bus drivers and crossing guards. If you have any interest in these positions, please go to the District’s website or call the district office for more information.

Small school, big pride moment: AM Pre-K students were waiting for dismissal while 4th grade students were at recess. Some of our amazing 4th grade students elected to sit down with Pre-K for a game of Duck, Duck, Goose during their recess time. We are lucky to be a part of this amazing #ONEFAMILY.
