Ingraham uses various methods to communicate information out to students and families:
- Students, please start checking your SPS email inbox daily for information from school.
- Schoology pages
- School Bulletins: We email the school bulletin via a system called School Messenger. Occasionally, we hear from parents/guardians who say they are not receiving the bulletin or have suddenly stopped receiving them. It is usually an email filter issue, or you have inadvertently unsubscribed. Please manage your communication preferences.
- Talking Point via cell phone text
