To Our Amazing Irvine Community:

The past year has been a challenging time for all of us but I am grateful knowing that our strength as a community will give us the hope that we need to get through this together.

For over 20 years, it has been IPSF’s mission to enrich the educational experience of each child in every school by providing programs for our awesome students, raising funds for our incredible schools, and uniting the community in support of educational excellence. This much has not changed, and IPSF remains committed to being by your side thorough the weeks and months ahead. Because as a community united in support of our children, we can overcome anything!

IPSF works with partners throughout the year to ensure that your child has incredible educational opportunities at school, after school, during the summer, and now, while distance learning. Free resources and tools can be found below, and will continue to be updated. Whether you are looking for a school lunch, or a fun coding activity, or mental health and wellness resources for your loved ones, we’ve compiled resources to help support you through this turbulent time.

Partnership in Action: Keeping Students Connected

Emergency Distance Learning has been a huge adjustment for students, teachers, and parents, but for many families, lack of access to technology and digital access creates an even greater challenge. Thanks to support from our partners at Google Fiber, we are helping to close the digital divide by providing more than 150 hotspots to families in need. Internet service, paired with Chromebook access provided by the district, helps to create digital inclusion so that students are able to fully engage in distance learning opportunities during this challenging time. We are so fortunate to be a part of a community that continues to come together in support of educational excellence.

Keeping our Community Healthy

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to this virus. Right now, COVID-19 has not been found to be spreading in Orange County, so there are no additional precautions recommended for residents to take. However, as a reminder, the CDC always recommends everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • Stay home except for essential needs.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
