Buy Lunch for a Student in Need Through the ISD 199 Angel Fund

Inver Grove Heights Schools offers complete, nutritious meals to its students so they are prepared to succeed in the classroom. However, some families experiencing financial difficulties cannot afford to keep money in their student's lunch account. Nothing should stand in the way of a child's access to a nutritious meal. That is why ISD 199 has an Angel Fund.

Families and community members can donate to the Angel Fund, and their generosity will pay for a meal for a student in need. A donation of only $10 can feed a student for a week. Please consider donating to the ISD 199 Angel Fund. Click here to find out how to donate to the Angel Fund and help students have a healthy, successful school year.

Thank you for helping a student this season.

 IGH Flyer Distribution      

Community groups and non-profits within ISD 199 offer many meaningful enrichment activities and events throughout the year. Many of these groups ask to share information with our students and families. These requests generate a high volume of printed flyers. 

In order to continue to share information, but reduce the number of unsolicited flyers sent home to families, ISD 199 has created a Distribution of Materials online review process. ISD 199 does not endorse or sponsor these activities. This information is provided as a community service. 

Online posting conserves resources and saves costs for both the District and the community groups and organizations. Elementary students may still bring home flyers from district-sponsored events.

The online flyers will be posted on the elementary, middle or high school page(s) as requested by the community organization. Approved flyers will be posted in PDF format and can be viewed on any device or printed at any time.
ISD 199 is not responsible for any incorrect information on the flyer. The District reserves the right to reject, discontinue, or retract any online flyer postings that do not meet ISD 199 requirements.
