Indiana Area School District will offer a Parent Orientation for parents of any student who will begin kindergarten for the 2016 - 2017 school year. This program is specifically designed for adults. This orientation will be held on a date to be determined at your child's school. The purpose of this orientation will be to provide information on the curriculum, health issues and required immunizations, bus transportation, and teacher "tips" for a great year. All incoming kindergarten students will be attending a "Soft Start Program" at the beginning of the new school year. More information will be available soon.
