Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year
This is your year: 2018-2019.We are very excited for the 2018-2019 school year. We are working to ensure a smooth transition for all students. This includes creating an ambassador program, college handbook, course selection guide, our athletic handbook, and much more.Shortridge Blue Book
The Shortridge Blue Book (student handbook) contains your supplies list, bell schedule and expectations. The Blue Book also contains forms that need to be completed by a parent/guardian at the start of the school year.
As well, we are excited as you progress one year closer to graduation. Our 'Level Up Guide' provides a list of tasks that should be completed before the school year starts each August. This guide has a section for every year level, as well as sections for athletics and service.
Below is a student planner that can be printed; the student planner indicates the A/B day rotation and school holidays. The IPS dress code is detailed below as well as a student and parent ManageBac guide on how to access our grade reporting system. Students will be entered into ManageBac over the summer and parents will be added using their email address once school begins. If you are interested in playing an athletic sport, we have published our athletic handbook that includes all of the forms you will need.
IPS also asks families seeking free or reduced educational benefits such as textbooks, to refer to the Educational Benefits Guidelines (Eng. version) (Spn. version). Once available we will place the Educational Benefits Form here to be downloaded and completed.Policies and Support
