Irmo Elementary Family Updates

#HeartoftheHive November 22-26

A Note From Your Principal

Dear IES Families,

This week we celebrated Jacoby D., our 5th grade student, who received the Irmo Rotary Club Student of the Month. Jacoby was chosen because of his optimism and positive leadership at Irmo Elementary (see Jacoby with his family below). We also enjoyed Thanksgiving lunch on Wednesday. Dr. Akil Ross, Superintendent, visited along with several other D5 staff members (see the picture below). Thank you to Jill Christian and our awesome IES cafeteria team for making this event wonderful for staff and students! Please review the upcoming dates and important details below.

Important Car Rider Information

Thank you for your help with the car line! Here are a few reminders to help with the process.

Morning Car Line

  • Thank you for having your student(s) ready to exit the cars and for exiting beginning at the tower! This really speeds up our line in the morning!
  • Merge or zipper the two lines together after passing the teacher parking entrance but before passing the top gate.
  • Please remember no left turns are allowed when exiting the car line.

Afternoon Car Line

  • For safety reasons, you must have your car tag ( not a picture) to pick up your student(s).
  • Please remember no left turns are allowed when exiting the car line.
