Welcome from Mr. Hiley

Dear IG Families:

There never seems to be enough weekends in December. Between concerts, parties, sports, and trying to get some rest, these weekends sure do fly by. I hope you enjoy this time with your families as much as possible.

We will continue our Countdown to 2023 next week. You can find specifics below.

Here is a message from the District in regard to emergency closures:

With the winter season upon us, make sure you stay up to date with the latest alerts about school closings and delays. Program our contact information into your phone (585) 339-1200 and our one-way text message number 98900. Most importantly, check Infinite Campus Parent Portal to make sure your contact information is correct in the system. If your information is incorrect, call the main office of your child’s school to update your information.

Thank you for being up to date on this matter.


Lucas Hiley. Ed.D.

A Peek at Our Week

PBIS Corner

We have started a little friendly competition in the cafeteria. Each lunch period has been assigned a mascot that students can earn to keep in their classrooms for the following week. Lunch monitors assign up to five points per day to each class for showing HEART in the cafeteria and on the playground. We tally the points throughout the week to determine the classes who get to enjoy their mascot the following week.

Congratulations to our first round of winning classes! They get to take their mascots for the next week.
