Two weeks ago, we launched Optimistic Household, which was developed solely for IUSD as part of our ongoing efforts to connect students and families with resources that support learning and social emotional wellness at the highest levels. Module 1 was the first in this six-part series and focused on the importance of building optimism during challenging times. It included a video message from positive psychology expert Shawn Achor, activities and resources.
Superintendent Walker's end of year message includes updates, links to resources and a tribute to the Class of 2020.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school will get extra food benefits through California’s Pandemic EBT or P-EBT program.
IUSD schools continued recognizing the Class of 2020, including promoting 6th and 8th grade students, along with graduating seniors.
Now more than ever, during uncertain and stressful times, it’s important to manage anxiety and stress, practice self-care and keep up with healthy habits. Making a small change can positively impact your health and wellbeing.
