Parent Association Meeting and Workshop “Pupil Path”

Thursday, October 16, 2014 8:30 am – 9:30 am

IS 220 teachers are using http://PupilPath.com to post homework and other school related information online for students and parents. In September students received an invitation to register for Pupil Path. The letter also included login information for parents. We are encouraging all parents to register and use PupilPath to communicate with teachers and school administrators.

6th Grade Parents please complete and sign Parental Consent Form from Lutheran Health Center at IS 220 that students received first week of school. Without it, the medical staff is unable to treat the student in case he/she gets sick in school. Students can also receive necessary vaccinations T-Dap, Flu shot, etc. (with additional parent’s consent only). In addition the Lutheran’s Dental Office is open and able to see students for check-ups and cleaning.


C.H.A.M.P.S. Program will begin on October 6th Monday – Friday 7am – 8am for application see Mr. McCarthy
