Recommitment Letter for JICS Parents

Dear James Irwin Parents/Guardians,

We are honored to have you and your student(s) as part of the family of James Irwin Charter Schools. Each year we ask for a recommitment from our current parents regarding their plans for next school year. This helps us with planning as well as making opportunities available for new students when we hear from current families who may be moving or are making a different educational choice for their student.

We want to let you know that our recommitment survey will be coming out soon. In order to ensure successful delivery of this survey to you, please login to your SchoolMint account and verify that all contact information (e.g. mobile phone number, email) is up to date.  If you have forgotten how to access your account, below is a link.

We look forward to continuing to serve your family in the 2019-20 school year. If you have any questions, please call (719)302-9105.
