School Communications

  • Every Monday, teachers will send home folders with graded work from the previous week. We ask that parents review the work, sign, and return the folder to school by Wednesday.
  • In addition to school work, our weekly school newsletter “Indy Info” containing general information will be emailed to parents and posted on the Independence website on Thursdays.
  • Parents should also check Home Access Center for student homework and class work information.
  • When an unexpected event occurs, we will send out a building-wide text message alerting parents. Phone calls are reserved for emergencies. Please see the "Stay Informed" section below to make sure your communication preferences are up-to-date.

    District Communications Portal

    At Lakota, transparent and timely communication is critically important. Using a mass notification system, we deliver important school and district news and announcements primarily via email, but oftentimes by phone and text message as well.

    Please reference the detailed sections below to ensure you are receiving school-to-home Lakota communications that are relevant to you as a parent/guardian, staff member or community member.

    All parent/guardian contact information submitted through FinalForms at the beginning of each school year and then displayed in your Home Access Center account is our primary source of email addresses and phone numbers used to communicate school and district news. Please note below the alternative method being used to update staff phone numbers. 

    The parent portal powered by School Messenger is no longer used to update parent/guardian contact information.
