IRE Family Update 8/9/21

Hello IRE families,

Last week DCS announced our Safety Protocols for the 2021-2022 School Year. Tonight is a Board of Education Meeting, during which Dr. Marschhausen will discuss the plan for Safe Return to In-Person Instruction. As a District we continue to receive, watch, and interpret guidance from ODH and FCDOH. As always, if there are any changes, we will communicate as soon as possible.

I encourage you to watch the Board meeting tonight. Dr. Marschhausen will also be hosting a virtual town hall meeting on Wednesday, August 11th from 7-8pm via YouTube Live. You can find the livestream on our website or YouTube channel. To ask a question, please email your question to

I know there are many questions and details about what it will look like at Indian Run this year. At the building level, we are working hard to have our building ready for our students and finalize our building plans. 

I will host a parent Q&A this Thursday, August 12th from 6-7pm via Zoom to share our building plan and answer any questions you may have. This will be a RSVP only virtual event. If you’d like to attend, please email me directly at and I will add your email to the Zoom event. I will do my best to address your questions.

We are excited to get our students in the building and welcome everyone back to school. This is going to be a great year! Thank you for your help and support!

Have a great evening!
