roadClosed1.jpgPlease be aware of a road construction project that may have an impact on transportation departing from Cambridge-Isanti High School.

Afternoon departures from CIHS are anticipated to be delayed beginning Wednesday, April 15. Cypress Street will be closed for repair, and this will slow down traffic. No traffic will be able to enter or leave school grounds via Cypress (the street runs east of the high school by the tennis courts).

All traffic will exit and enter CIHS grounds from Fern Street (the street runs west of the high school past the Larson Baseball Field).

North Fern Street with be the only route entering and exiting CIHS grounds.

Please anticipate a delay of buses to transfer hubs from the high school. There is no way to know exactly how long transportation delays may be, however, it is being recommended that transportation times are adjusted to 15 minutes later than present arrival times. Please keep in mind that student and parent drivers may also be delayed in getting home.

Although morning traffic is not anticipated to be as delayed due to staggered arrival times, it is advised that you plan to arrive a few minutes early, in case of delays, if you are traveling to CIHS.

You are thanked for your understanding and your flexibility while you accommodate the transportation changes due to the road construction project near CIHS.

Cypress will be closed from 5th Ave NW through 8th Ave NW. This closure will remain for the duration of the school year.

The intersection of 5th Ave NW/Cypress will be open as much as possible, but will be closed at times. The intersection of 4th Ave NW/Cypress will remain open.

You can see the alternate routes via the green dashes, and the road closure in orange.

If you are heading north on Cypress toward CIHS you will want to take a left to go west on either 4th Ave NW or 5th Ave NW (as able).

Fundraising: It all adds up!
Clip and save your BoxTops or Labels for Education, keep your Kemps or Land O Lakes Milk Caps, and Swipe your Target RedCard. Although these three things seem simple and easy, they also can raise funds for our school. We can use the money for things like field trips, special classroom supplies, and other "extras" that school budgets can't fund.
In fact, together, these programs bring the school hundreds -- sometimes thousands --  of dollars each year. Remember to ask your friends, relatives and neighbors to save things too. It's a simple way to help that goes a long way.

BoxTops for Education
What to Do: Clip Box Tops coupons from hundreds of products found at your local grocery store. Each coupon is worth 10 cents when we redeem them from General Mills.

Where to Find:Pop Secret popcorn, Bugels, Chex Mix, Gardettos snacks, Cheerios, Wheaties, Chex, Total, Kix, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Trix, Cocoa Puffs, Lucky Charms, Yoplait Go-Gurt, Pillsbury Rolls, Betty Crocker cake mixes and frosting, Bisquick, Progresso Soup, Old El Paso products, Gold Medal flour and many more! Go to www.boxtops4education.com to see a complete list of participating products.

Campbell's Labels for Education
The Labels for Education program is a great way to get FREE merchandise for our school, and Campbell's makes it so easy to redeem labels. Participating in the program is easy - simply save the UPC labels from Campbell's and other participating products and send them to school!

Other Items that can be Donated for Fundraising
Isanti Intermediate also participates in fundraising through a recycling program.  Please send empty inkjet and laser printer cartridges and used cell phones with your student or drop them off the next time you are in the building in the designated area in the main office.
Target Take Charge of Education
Here's a terrific way to raise funds for Isanti Intermediate School! All you have to do is use your Target Visa or Target Card. Target generously donates 1 percent of your Target Visa or Target Card purchases to the school of your choice - in the form of a cash donation through the Take Charge of Education program. Target tracks purchases charged to participating accounts and sends a check to us in March and September.

Sign me up!
Signing up is easy.  Just visit target.com/tcoe, or call 1-800-316-6142 to designate a school as the school to receive a percentage of your purchases.

If you ever shop at Target, please consider using your Target Visa or Target Card. A big thanks to those who are already doing their part to make our great school even better.
