The USDA (US Dept of Ag) has extended their program offering free meals to I-S students through the end of the school year (or until funding run out). The USDA program was originally scheduled to expire 12/31, so this extension provides a great opportunity to students and their families to have access to free nutritious meals all school year long!
The district will remain in the same instructional model for the next two week period beginning November 9th (in-person learning at the elementary and blended learning at the MS/HS). Please visit our COVID webpage or check your email for more information.
Results from yesterday's referendum election are in! The referendum passed with 1,677 Yes votes and 1,255 No votes. Thank you to everyone who voted and thank you for your continued support of the Iola-Scandinavia School District!

If you haven't already done so, please complete the online student registration process for the upcoming school year through Skyward Family Access. Chromebooks for MS/HS students cannot be issued until registration has been completed (specifically the Computer Use Agreement). Also, it is especially important this year to ensure we have up-to-date contact information for our families to share important information and updates. (Check your e-mail for instructions about how to complete online registration.)
As we get ready to welcome students back into our buildings, we want to remind families that school and food service fees can be made online through our webstore. We highly encourage families to take advantage of this online option to help limit contact in our buildings. https://iolascandinavia.revtrak.net/Food-Fee-Payments/

All students will receive a free book, goodie bag, and snacks. Please call Katie Sroka at 715-445-2411 x1451 to register your child.
Bus Routes: We apologize for some confusion regarding bus routes for the new school year. Routes for 2019-20 are mostly unchanged from 2018-19 and pickup and drop off times should be similar to those from last school year. However, we ask families to be patient during the first few days of school and prepared for bus routes to arrive a few minutes early or later than scheduled. For families who submitted bus registration forms by August 23rd, post cards were mailed home with pickup/drop off times. For registration forms submitted after August 23rd, Kobussen drivers and office staff were contacting families with bus route times as late as Friday afternoon. If you are unsure of bus route info for your child(ren) please plan for the same time as last year (allowing a 5-10 minute difference) or contact Kobussen at Iola.TM@Kobussen.com or 715-227-5100. Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
We are exciting to begin the school year with the district teaching staff on Monday, August 26th. The week will be full of opportunities for growth.
