KIPP Families – Following Fall Break on Oct 19, KIPP will offer in-person instruction in alignment with MCHD guidelines. KIPP will also offer a full e-learning option for those unable or uncomfortable returning.  Attached is KIPP’s updated re-opening plan, also available at http://kippindy.org/re-opening-plan/. If you have questions, email CV19@kippindy.org.

By 5pm Mon (Sept 21), please use the survey link below to make your selections for all of Quarter 2 (Oct 19 – Dec 18).  To maximize social distancing on buses, we encourage families, based on their ability, to carpool or walk if able.  The safety of our students remains our #1 priority, and based on the number of students who select e-learning or opt-out of transportation, we will finalize plans to transport and instruct students aligned to MCHD guidelines.  This may include a hybrid schedule that has students attending in-person several days a week and participating in e-learning on others.  We will communicate final plans for in-person instruction based on survey results by Mon, Sept 28.

KIPP Families – The U.S. Census Bureau is ending all counting efforts for the 2020 census on September 30, 2020, a month sooner than previously announced.  The count is used to distribute power at every level of government and distribute more than $675 billion each year to communities across the nation. Decisions about Indy’s future – and the dollars for it – come down to counting everyone, especially YOU!  To learn more about Indy’s efforts and resources to support your participation, visit https://countmeindy.com/

To participate in the 2020 census, you can go to the website below, or call one of the phone numbers listed.  We want to ensure your power and voice is heard, and census results have major impacts on school funding, such as special education, head start, after school programs, and the national school lunch program.  Thank you!
