If you would like to order a t-shirt for your student or yourself, please see the link, below and place the order no later than noon on the 13th of August. There are adult and student sizes. The first three items listed are student sizes and the last three are adult. Shirts will be shipped to campus and available for pick up beginning August 21st in the RE:FUEL cafe area!


K – 5 Arrival/Dismissal – Beginning Sept 6th

Students may arrive each morning at 8:35am. Please do not drop students off earlier. There is no playground supervision prior to 8:35am each day. To help everyone remember the drop off time, there are signs in the drop off area of the parking lot. At 8:35am each morning, our safeties will remove these signs so that you may drop students off.

Dismissal is at 3pm each Thursday. We thank you, in advance, for picking students up on time as Innocademy dismisses its 350 students at 3:30pm each day and we want to be clear of the parking lot before their folks begin lining up each afternoon.

Handicapped Parking Spaces

There are spaces next to the building on each side for those who need them. Unless you have a sticker, mirror tag or license plate indicating a need to park in those spaces, please park in the spaces located in the bigger lot areas – – even if you are intending to only be there for a quick minute. Thank you!

Construction Information July – November

Hang on, folks! It’s going to be a fun one this summer/fall as MDOT redoes just about everything concerning intersections and roads surrounding our school! Please see the published schedule:
