Dear IMSA Families,
On April 2, 2020, it was announced by Governor Eric Holcomb and Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick that all schools will remain closed through the end of the school year. This means that our students and staff will not return to their classrooms and/or schools, and we will continue instruction via eLearning. The last official day of school is Friday, May 29. We know this may come as a disappointment to many of our students, especially our seniors at IMSA North. We are working on alternative plans for commencement and will keep you updated. We remain dedicated to supporting our students and families through eLearning for the remainder of the school year.
In addition, please continue to check our website for COVID-19 updates. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we work together to keep our community safe and healthy during this unfortunate crisis.

As an update on the most current developments and guidance regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic:
Earlier today, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett announced that all 13 public school systems and city-sponsored charter schools in Marion County will be closed beginning Friday, March 13.
Indiana Math and Science Academy is closed through May 29
In the meantime, our custodial staff will regularly disinfect door knobs, drinking fountains, and other high-frequency “touch points,” and of course restrooms and cafeterias.
As always, and especially during flu season, anyone who becomes sick with a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing needs to stay home. Contact your medical provider with questions.
We know decisions like these impact families, and we understand the sacrifice this will entail, but it is the right thing to do. Our top priority is the health and safety of students and staff, and we will continue to follow the guidance of local, state, and federal health officials in this evolving situation.
Watch for Updates
We will post necessary updates on all communications channels, including the event websites and via email.
Always an innovator, we are looking into alternative possibilities to learning. Please look for updates soon.
We continue to encourage everyone to join us in following public health advisories by taking all of the appropriate personal hygiene measures being recommended. Click here (PDF) for an overview of personal precautions to take.
