Please forward an e-mail address to Lisa lcjohnston@ihis.org in the office if you wish to be able to track student attendance in the Student Achieve Program. It will also allow parents to view Grade 7/8 academic reports.

Please remember to sign your child IN or OUT  if you are dropping them off late or picking them up early. A note is another option in place of signing in or out or speaking directly to someone at the school by phone or in person.

Thanks for your cooperation!
