- Barton Tutors: We are working to be able to screen our students at Innocademy and iCademy Global for their strengths in phonemic awareness. These are the fundamentals of reading. We are finding students who are in need of some support beyond what can be offered each day on the classroom.
- Copying Barton tutoring materials: Come on in and enjoy a coffee from Re-Fuel while making some copies!

OLD Info…In Case You Missed It =)
February Lunch Menu
Calendar for 2018-2019 School Year
Hot Lunch Payments
Just a reminder that hot lunch is a prepay program. All Child Nutrition Programs are set up that money needs to be in the lunch account for a child to receive hot lunch. Please keep your child’s account current. You may drop off a check at the front desk or go to sendmoneytoschool.com to submit a payment – there is a transaction charge to pay online. Thank you!
One never knows when a family may get hit with a financial challenge. Lunch benefits are always available year round…. you may apply at lunchapp.com and fill out a confidential application. Any questions, please email Sue at email@example.com. If your family currently has a negative balance, if you apply for lunch benefits and qualify we will wipe out your negative balance.
If you or someone you know needs assistance with housing, food, utilities, furniture, medical services, etc. Please see the information below for a list of available resources in Ottawa County:
The Ottawa County Health Department announced an upswing in the number of people experiencing norovirus and norovirus-like symptoms, otherwise known as the stomach bug.
Girls Running Club Sign Ups!
Girls in grades in 3rd-8th grade should have received running club sign up sheets this past week. We are excited to start end of February and must receive sign up and payment no later then February 15th to make sure we are ready to go. I have attached the forms for you in case you missed them among the busyness of the season. InnoMazing girls is for 3rd-6th grade and GLOSS for our 7th-8th grade.
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
- 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 firstname.lastname@example.org)
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 email@example.com 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.
