ISY Gym/Fitness Room Update

The ISY gymnasium is open 7:30 AM to 8:00 PM daily.  It is open to the ISY community to use outside of school hours and when it is not needed for school activities / events.  It should be noted the gym is not supervised unless there is a school activity / event.  Therefore, it is used at the individual’s own risk.  There must be a responsible adult available for use by anyone younger than grade 6. 

The fitness room is still available 24-hours/day for HS students and the ISY parent community.  MS students are permitted only when accompanied by an adult.  ES students are not permitted in the fitness room at any time.

Session 1 & 2 ASA Update

Session 1 ASAs will come to an end on Friday, November 8th.  Session 2 will begin on Monday, November 25.  A new ASA packet will be sent to the community during the break between sessions.  All sign-ups will take place through Power School again for Session 2.  I will continue to update the community as the time approaches to sign up for the next series of classes.

Community Education: Session 2 Friday Afternoon Yoga

The next session of Friday Afternoon Yoga will begin on November 8th.  Cost is $10/session for four sessions, paid at the time of the first class.  We need to have at least 7 participants in order for the yoga class to take place, so please sign up now at Friday Yoga Session 2.

ES Sports Update
