Freshmen Orientation - March 14th, 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM in the IHS Stadium

You do not want to miss this event for all incoming 9th graders and their parents! This is a great intro to the Falcon culture and preview of opportunities at Independence like sports, programs, and clubs to get involved with during your freshman year.


Freshmen Registration - March 18th OR March 19th, 4:30 PM - 7:30 PM in the Cafeteria

This is where incoming freshmen and their parent/guardian turn in the registration packet (given out at Orientation) with copies of 2 different forms of proof of residence (e.g. utility bill, cable bill, DMV documentation) and a copy of current immunizations. After turning in the paperwork, the student and parent/guardian will meet with an Independence staff member to select classes for the fall. In addition, students will take ID Card photos and have the opportunity to purchase IHS gear and PE clothes.
