Good Afternoon IRCS Families,

Thank you in advance for your patience as we monitor the projected path of Tropical Storm Nicole. Due to predicted inclement weather, including projected sustained winds over 50 MPH, Indian Rocks Christian School will be closed on Thursday, November 10th. Aftercare will remain open today Wednesday, November 9, 2022, until 6:00 pm. Sports teams may practice today, but they must be finished by 5:30 pm. All after school activities, sporting events, and school events on Thursday, November 10th will be canceled or rescheduled.

To recover some of the lost instructional time, IRCS will make Wednesday December 21, 2022, a full day for preschool through 7th grade and a half day for 8th through 12th grade. An updated exam schedule will be provided for high school students next week.

Please continue to pray for the safety of our families and all the families affected by this storm throughout Florida.

Dear IRCS Families, 

First, I am thankful Pinellas County will not experience a horrific direct Category 4 hurricane, and I pray that each of you and your families remains safe. While we will not have a direct hit, it appears that much of Pinellas County will soon be without power as we prepare to experience what seems will be significant wind.

Because we don’t know how bad conditions will become and how long they will last, IRCS will be closed on Friday, September 30, 2022. This closure includes all offices and all extracurricular activities. The Indian Rocks Baptist Church is still planning to hold services on Sunday, but IRCS will reschedule the IRCS School Team meeting scheduled on Sunday, the 1st. 

IRCS is planning to reopen on Monday, October 3, 2022.

Please continue to pray for the families experiencing the full force of this storm.

God Bless and please be safe.

Dear IRCS Families,

Thank you in advance for your patience as we deal with the logistics involving Hurricane Ian, and please continue to lift up the families of Florida as Ian bears down upon us. Due to Ian’s projected path, IRCS will be closing school Tuesday through Thursday this week. This action will allow families and staff time to prepare their homes for the storm. The current track shows the storm landing just north of Pinellas County in the evening of Wednesday or early in the morning Thursday. Because the storm’s path and speed are not exact, we will delay any decisions regarding Friday, September 30, 2022, until Wednesday morning, September 28. At that time, we will send an additional email updating you.

Aftercare will remain open until 6:00 p.m. today. Teams may practice today, but they must be finished by 6:00 p.m. All school activities scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday will be canceled or rescheduled.

The NJHS/NHS Induction ceremony scheduled for Monday night is being rescheduled. This change will allow our facilities staff to prepare the building should the storm’s path remain aimed at Pinellas County.

To recover some of the lost days, IRCS is changing Friday, October 7, 2022, from a half day to a full day. In addition, we are extending the 1st Quarter to Friday, October 14, 2022. Monday, October 10, will remain a holiday.

Please continue to pray for the safety of our families and all the families throughout Florida through this storm.

Official information and instructions will be communicated via the IRCS Alert system, our social media pages, and right here on our website.  At this time, we plan to operate as normal for the school day on Monday, Sept. 26th.
