Inland Lakes Schools is participating in a free program to ensure adult advertisements do not reach our emails. We have registered ALL inlandlakes.org emais with Protect MI Child. We encourage families to participate with this program as well. This FREE program is available at www.protectmichild.com.
The messages that are sent out from Inland Lakes Schools via our Phonedialer system are now available to be sent as text messages. In order to receive these messages as a text you need to do two things.
1 - Give your cell phone number to the building secretary. If you have children at both schools, both secretaries will need the number.
2 - Opt in to receive text messages; here are the directions for doing that:
Text "join" (without the quotes) to 56360 from the phone you would like to receive the text messages.
Enter the short code 56360 into your phone's contact list as a contact from Inland Lakes Schools.
To opt out of receiving the text mesages, text "stop" (without the quotes) to 56360.
The Inland Lakes Boosters donated supplies to the classrooms in our district. They are very much appreciated and will surely be put to good use. Their generosity is greatly appreciated.
Backpacks for students at Inland Lakes Schools were donated by the Indian River United Methodist Church (IRUMC). In just 3 weeks the church was able to accumulate over $1300 in cash donations, as well as additional school supplies, to fill 200+ backpacks. Meg Goerke, IRUMCs Children's Ministry Director, says "Our community really knows how to come together for children and teens."
Inland Lakes Schools thanks IRUMC for their support!
