Learning Opportunities Over Winter Break: Let the Learning Continue!

Happy Holidays, Team & Family!  

IDEA Public Schools will be closed for Winter Break from Monday, December 20 –Friday, December 31. Students will return to school on Tuesday, January 4, after a staff development day on Monday! During the break, we encourage all our students to continue reading and engaging in fun learning opportunities! 

 IDEA’s AR Zone & iLearning Hotspot software will continue to be available at home through Winter Break, beginning on Thursday, December 8, through Monday, January 3, 2022.    

To keep your child reading over Winter Break, be sure they read at least 30 – 60 minutes a day. In addition, set goals for the number of words your child should read by the end of break and do something special when he/she reaches it.
