AM/PM Student Drop Off
Parents who are dropping off or picking up a student before or after school must do so in the lower high school parking lot.
AM: Students must be dropped off in the high school parking lot and utilize the cross walk across from the main high school entrance. Students may enter the high school and walk through the cafeteria or walk along the front sidewalk, then enter through the middle school.
PM: Again, students must be picked up in the high school parking lot. Students may utilize the cross walk across from door 5N, near the middle school main entrance.
The middle school parking lot will not be utilized for pick up or drop off before and after school in any format.

Welcome back! Please don’t forget incoming 6th graders have two school required immunizations (Meningococcal (MCV4) and Tdap). These are required before the start of school. Please email updated immunization records to email@example.com or send a copy to the Middle School office. If your student is not up to date by Fall Break, they will not be able to return to school after the break until they are up to date.
If your student has daily medications that need administered during the school day or any changes to their health history, please update Jill Lawalin, firstname.lastname@example.org or 317-878-2108.
Hello parents and students!
I hope you all had a relaxing summer. I am so excited to get back to school! I want to start by introducing you to our counseling department. I am Lindsey Crouch - the school counselor here at ICMS. Please think of me as a great starting point to any questions you may have. I do not know all of the answers, but I can point you in the right direction if I am unsure.
I am here for ALL students. I am here to help students with academic, social, or personal struggles that may pop up throughout their middle school years. My goal is to know ALL of our students' names by September. I have the 7th and 8th grade down, but the 6th grade is at times a struggle. I truly strive to know something about each of our kiddos here. I do not want life situations to happen to kiddos and the first time they meet with me - I have to learn their name. I want them to feel comfortable coming to me so that if they truly need me - they will be more willing to open up.
If you have concerns about your student at any point in the school year - please call me or email me and we will figure out the best steps for your child.
Have a great school year!
ICMS School Counselor
"Happy New Year!” (school year, that is) It is hard to believe that it is the beginning of a new school year and with new things come many emotions.
Students have a myriad of emotions such as excitement, anxiety, grumpy (hello having to wake up early again!), hopeful, etc. when something is new and that is completely normal. Part of my job is to help students during those moments of high anxiety or a friend crisis or family difficulties or sometimes just letting a student vent. We all need someone to listen, share advice, help navigate through difficult situations and students are no different. I also help students learn social/emotional skills for whatever they may need (anger, focusing, organization, anxiety, communication, etc). In addition, I help provide resources to parents/guardians as needed.
My position serves both the middle school and high school students. I truly enjoy getting to know our students and hearing their stories. Each one is special and brings unique qualities to our campus. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child, please feel free to call or email me. My door is always open.
PS- I, too, am navigating these waters with my own 7th grade daughter. You are not alone!
