Student Item Pickup and School Item Return

Families will drive through the bus loop to pick up items and drop off school items at stations (see below). This pickup/dropoff will happen curbside and there will be no contact with school personnel. Directions and signs will be posted - please follow the signs to help with the flow of traffic and ensure each family is able to collect/drop off all items at their designated time. Please see the schedule below for each students’ day/time for pickup/dropoff.  We will be giving back 1136 students their items back and collecting items as well, we ask that you only come to school during your designated time so our staff can keep the flow of traffic moving.  If you cannot come on your designated day/time we ask that you wait until Friday to come to the school. Thank you for your understanding!

Station 2 - Ordered Yearbook Pickup - limited number of yearbooks still available for $25

Library News

Three book chats down and more to come!  The Irving Library will continue to host book talks on Thursday afternoons, from 3 pm until 4 pm through Blackboard Collaborate Ultra.  Since it is difficult for a group of us to obtain and read the same book title, we welcome discussion about any book that you’ve recently read.  Anyone who’d like to participate in the May 28th book chat should plan to drop in and share.

Looking for something for your child to read or listen to? We have updated our selection with new titles! Click below for information on accessing free ebooks and audiobooks and for a listing of the Irving librarians’ office hours:
