The Benefits of Independent Studies
School is out on....Saturday (there is school all day on Friday). If you are leaving town on Friday please let the office know asap by emailing so we can set up Independent Studies. We have 12 students on Independent Studies who are benefitting by:
  • Completing their assignments before the holidays with nothing hanging over their heads to complete upon return

Our 12 students are covering a total of 47 days missing school, keeping IVA's budget healthy by saving around $2,350. Thank you families for letting us know when you are out of town so we can recoup those funds!!
