Dear Irvington Families,

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful summer.

Here are general supply lists for the upcoming school year. Additional supplies may be included in class letters, but this is the bulk of the materials your child will need so that you can take advantage of summer school supply sales.

The main office is closed until August 10th, but I can still be reached by email at kellwood@pps.net. Please remember that school begins on August 27th this year.

Enjoy the sunshine and remember that books travel too!
