NEW Info For This Week!

Angel Tree – Do You Know A Family In Need?

Do you have or know of an Innocademy Zeeland, Innocademy Allegan, Precademy or iCademy Family who has a need this holiday season, that we can help bless you with? We love taking care of our own little community, and helping with needs when they arise, which includes Christmas.
 
Again, this year we will offer an Angel Tree opportunity, open to all IES families; Precademy, Innocademy Allegan, Innocademy Zeeland and iCademy Global. Needs will be placed on a tree in the lobby, for others to select from, and help provide.
 
Please do not worry, as this will all be anonymous.
 
Should you have some specific needs this year – – or know of a family that does, please send an email request BY MONDAY, DECEMBER 4TH, to deedee.defrell@icademyglobal.org
 
All requests will be viewed by Ms Deedee. Once all requests have been received, you will hear back directly from her regarding your need(s) with specific details.
 
We wish for all families to enjoy their holidays, so please let us know how we can brighten yours.

Christmas…

We feel incredibly fortunate to work in a community where our parents are so supportive! We know that, sweetly, many of you often like to do something for us at Christmas. This year, we not only hosting an Angel Tree for families in need, but also collecting items for “poke prizes” and “distraction boxes” provided to patients at Helen Devos Children’s Hospital. We would love for you to donate to one of these opportunities instead of feeling like you need to do something for us. If, however, you feel as though you still would like to do something additional, Amazon Giftcards are always great as they allow us to purchase fun games and materials for the classroom. Thank you so much!

Weather Delays/Closed Campus

When Mother Nature decides to make travel to campus dangerous we may find it necessary to cancel or delay on site options for that day. We determine morning cancellations based on Zeeland Public Schools; If they are closed due to weather, our campus will be closed. If they delay due to weather, we will delay. GREAT news, though! Since we are an online school, students can continue their learning at home for any days where we experience a delay or closing of campus. All due dates are still in effect. If campus is closed, we will notify you by the following methods:

  • Email to parents
  • Facebook post
  • WZZM 13
  • WOOD-TV8
  • iCademy group text message through Rained Out (sign up for this service by texing “icademy” to 84483. You will receive a message back saying you are signed up. Please contact Leisa if you have trouble leisa.lobbezoo@innocademy.com)

In the event of a 2 hour delay, campus will be open at 11am. On these days, there will only be a HOT lunch choice for the day as Ms. Rosie won’t have time to prepare both choices..

Have You Accessed Your Parent/Observer Account?

Each parent/guardian should have a parent/observer account associated with your student. If you do not have one, please email Deedee at deedee.defrell@icademyglobal.org so that she can set one up for you. If you aren’t sure, simply go to this link:  https://icademy.ems.connexus.com/ and enter your firstname.lastname as the username and password will be #iCademy17.

Why Do You Need A Parent/Observer Account?

This is the primary way that your child’s teacher will communicate with you and makes it easy for you to connect with them on questions. It’s also the place you will look for general communications from your grade teams. This account also helps you clearly see what your student needs to do and has already completed. If you have questions, please contact your child’s mentor or teacher.
