POSTPONED: Welcome to the ISD for incoming Kindergarten parents

Dear Incoming Kindergarten Families,

Tonight’s event, Welcome to the ISD Kindergarten Families, depends on the generosity of time provided by volunteers.

Unfortunately, many of our volunteers and interpreters are unable to attend the event tonight.

As a result, tonight’s event, Welcome to the ISD Kindergarten Families, has been postponed.

We apologize for the late notice and any inconvenience this may cause.

Welcome to the ISD Kindergarten Families will be postponed to a date to be determined later this school year.

Please check the ISD website and look for future communications to be emailed to incoming Kindergarten families who have registered for kindergarten.
