I would like an opportunity to welcome you in person if at all possible.

Traffic Drop-Off & Pick-Up
Safety of our students, staff, and parents is my number one priority during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-ups. As you prepare for drop-off and pick-ups, please consider the following alternatives to utilizing our front parking lot which can become very busy:
If you must use the front parking lot, please follow the directions of staff members, be courteous to other drivers, and stay off your cell phones. Safety comes first!
For more information on drop-off/pick-ups, please view this flyer.
School Loop Information
For our new parents, we use School Loop as an important part of our communication system. To learn more about School Loop and how it can help parents stay connected to your child’s learning, go to www.powerofjaguar.net and click on the video on the left side of our website. All students will be shown how to create their School Loop login the first week of school. To register for your parent login, you will need to wait until after the first day of school to login. To create your parent login, you will need your child’s Student Identification (SID) Number, which you can get by logging into the Parent Portal or by simply asking your child. The SID can also be found on your child’s Student Body card which they will receive by the end of the first week of school.
Back to School Night
I would like to invite all of our parents/guardians to attend our Back to School Night on Thursday, September 1, at 7:00 pm. This will be great night to meet your child’s teachers and get a sneak peek at what they will learn this year.
Thank you again for your continued support of Iron Horse. We never take for granted the immense levels of support that we receive from our community. We are very proud of our school and the environment that students, staff, and parents have created here together.
