IPUL's E-News for September 11, 2020
Here are the highlights of our recent activity online. Not all everything is included due to timeliness. If an advertised event already took place, we've left it off.
IPUL Is Here For You!

The best method to reach us is through our website:  

We monitor our intake phone line several times a day, and will try to respond to any request there within 24 hours. 

For questions that are not about something in our scope of work, you can still leave a phone message as above, or send us an email at parents@ipulidaho.org - this account will be monitored daily, but is not as heavily monitored as the main intake systems.
We keep constantly updating our COVID-19 page with new information as it becomes available: https://ipulidaho.org/covid-19-information
