Indian Lane Communication Tools

Last Updated: 9/17/2019 1:42 AM


Communication is Key


Indian Lane Website 

The ILES website is updated frequently.  Answers to many questions can be found on the main page.  In particular, important information is listed under “Resources” on the top menu bar and the Parent Portal located below our scrolling photos.  Timely information about news & special events can be found under “Latest News” near the bottom of our main page. Please note that only 4 headlines are visible on the main page, but click “SHOW ALL NEWS” to see a list of all headlines.   There are no e-alerts as before.  


The Bobcat Bulletin

Each week you will receive a link to the The Bobcat Bulletin, Indian Lane’s weekly newsletter, from Mr. Reid.  The Bobcat Bulletin contains important information from all areas of our school including our principal, nurse, cafeteria, special area teachers, counselor, and more.  It is a great resource for upcoming events and provides helpful reminders. Please read the newsletter each week to remain informed. A link to the most current bulletin can be found on the main page of our website under “Latest News.”  Previous weeks will be archived as well under “Resources” on the top menu bar.


School Messenger

Mr. Reid will send out messages via School Messenger throughout the school year. Parents can choose how they would like to receive messages - emails, texts, and/or phone calls.  Please be sure to review and update your preferences in School Messenger to reflect your current preferences. For help setting your preferences, watch this video from Mr. Reid.



Please follow @ILES_ENews on Twitter.  We use Twitter to communicate website updates, post pictures, share upcoming events and reminders, and more.  We also use hashtags throughout the school year to share memories of our school events. Many of our classroom teachers and specialists also use Twitter.


PTG Webpage & Membership Toolkit Directory

Indian Lane is lucky to have a very involved Parent Teacher Group (PTG).  Read all about the PTG events, volunteer opportunities, fundraising, and more by selecting “PTG” on the circle menu located on the website.  A link to the Membership Toolkit Directory can also be found there. Please create an account to receive PTG communication about class parties and more.


Watch “News On The Lane” LIVE at 8:55 a.m.

Did you know that you can watch our morning announcements each day?  Indian Lane’s live broadcast produced by fifty-two fifth students airs daily in all our classrooms.  Parents who subscribe to the YouTube channel will receive a notice when a live broadcast begins. Archived videos can also be viewed.  Enjoy!
