As you may know, the district will be offering its annual spring sports physicals on Wednesday, May 30th at I.M.S. after school for a cost of $20. In addition to the sports physicals, we are offering the OPTION of drug testing for an additional cost. This would be at the request of the parents, as this is not required by the school district. Again, this is an OPTIONAL drug test. Results would only be shared with the student and parents, as the school district would not know who passed/failed. No school discipline would come from a failed test, as the school would have no way of knowing who failed.

If you would like your I.H.S. student to be a part of this optional drug screening, there will be permission forms in the I.H.S. Clinic starting on May 23rd. Please have your student return the form and a check for $10 made payable to Independence Local Schools by Friday, May 25th to the IHS Main Office.

Again, this optional drug test service is available if you choose to have your student tested.

Please email or call if you have any questions. Thank you for your continuing support of I.H.S.!

I appreciate everyone's patience as we retool our WiFi systems in the district.  While open and free wifi is great, there are many laws and regulations which are in place for everyone's safety.  These laws also affect portions of school funding, so ensuring that everyone follows those rules is paramount to maintaining our network.  If you are a student that would like to use a personal device on the school wifi, please complete this Form.  The district guest WiFi is on during weekends and from 3pm - 7am, weekdays.  The WiFi SSID for personal devices is "IPride".  Once your device information is loaded in the system, you will be able to connect to "IPride" without a password.  As a reminder, it is against BOE policy and the district AUP to connect personal devices to "ILSWLAN".  Continued issues with misues of district connectivity will result in less opportunity to connect personal devices. [...click for more]

The Ohio Music Educators Association Solo and Ensemble Contest is a contest in which young musicians perform art songs for ratings based on pitch, intonation, balance, interpretation, tone quality and accuracy. It is a terrific opportunity for IHS students to work on their small group and individual musicianship and receive invaluable comments from a variety of adjudicators! The discipline learned through this experience is something that serves the students as they grow musically. Performances are rated on a scale of I - V, with I being the highest. Performances are separated by Class, A - C, with A being the most challenging. [...click for more]
