If you have any questions as we share additional graduation information, please do not hesitate to reach out to Ms. Harfod, Class of 2022 Assistant Principal, or me.
We are excited to share this experience with you!
INCOMING FAMILY ORIENTATION- VIRTUAL
We are looking forward to working closely with you as your family moves closer to entering IHS!
STUDENTS IN QUARANTINE/ISOLATION
While students are away from IHS, Schoology will be the first resource in order to stay connected with classroom learning.
If you have questions, please feel free to reach out to the teacher or your child's school counselor.
SEAL OF CIVIC READINESS- NEW DIPLOMA DISTINCTION
The New York State Seal of Civic Readiness is a new graduation seal for which IHS seniors are eligible starting in the Spring of 2022. To earn this Seal, students will demonstrate how they have met the criteria for the Seal over the past four years through course credits, Regents credits, extracurricular endeavors, research projects, and community service, as well as a 12th-grade Capstone Project, which is completed through all senior-level Social Studies courses (Participation in Government, Economics, AP Economics, and AP Government). In the Spring, students who wish to apply for the Seal will submit their materials to the Seal of Civic Readiness Committee, which, if awarded, will be added to the High School Diploma.

MIDTERM WEEK JAN. 24-28- CLASSES ARE IN SESSION
We have been considering the best course of action regarding a midterm week, which historically has coincided with the January Regents exams. A decision has been made to hold regular instruction and run a typical schedule during the week of January 24th-28th. Continuity of Instruction and Continued Focus on Social-Emotional Well-Being are priorities. Teachers will determine how they will continue to assess student learning which could be through a midterm type experience spread out over multiple class periods or an alternative, authentic assessment allowing students the opportunity to demonstrate progress over time towards standards of focus. We are discussing opportunities for sustained Regents practice prior to the June Regents and will share more once those plans are formalized.
Teachers will share updates with students regarding learning and assessments.
EMCC and MOF- No Classes Wednesday, January 26th.
Students should sign in or sign out once they have completed their IHS classes for this date.
