Dear Eagle Families:

Welcome to another exciting new school year! I am so glad you are here.

Our core mission is to foster student growth. We are committed to providing experiences, opportunities, services, and supports that young people need along the road through life that begins here in the Zionsville Community Schools.

Together we will ensure another safe and productive school year filled with activities good for young lives. 

This guide includes our most up-to-date school health protocols. Our CoVID-19 Task Force and Board of Trustees continue to monitor public health officials’ guidance and will make decisions and related communications accordingly as the school term unfolds.

Enjoy the remainder of summer break. Here’s to another great school year in ZCS!

Scott Robison, Ph.D., Superintendent

The ZCS Board of School Trustees recently updated our CoVID-19 operations plan. 

All plans for the start of school on August 3, 2021 are subject to change. Please review the details below as we prepare for a great year together!

  1. Masks are required indoors until further notice.
  2. Mask wearing is required by all persons on all school transportation until further notice.
  3. All masking and other protocols are subject to change.
  4. ZCS will not require vaccination for any staff or student until further notice.
  5. All instruction-based visitors (tutors, private music lessons, guest speakers, etc.) will be required to complete a C-19 Waiver, and their access to campus is subject to change.
  6. Mitigation strategies of increased ventilation, cleaning, and hand washing/sanitizing will continue as practiced last school year.
  7. Cafeterias and transportation for students will operate at full capacity.
  8. Guests are not allowed to have lunch at school with a student until further notice.
  9. Related arts will hold classes in their classrooms.
  10. Per Governor Holcomb's Executive Order on September 1, 2021, in settings, such as classrooms or on the school bus, where all students are wearing masks, close contacts who are within three feet of positive case will be notified to monitor for symptoms for 14 days. Those students will continue in school as long as no symptoms develop. If symptoms develop, students must isolate and obtain testing whether or not fully vaccinated.
  11. Close contacts within six feet of a positive case and in an unmasked setting (i.e. lunchroom, band) must quarantine with one of the below options.

    • Quarantine for 14 days (no test required).

    • Quarantine for seven days with negative test (PCR or rapid test done in lab) on days five, six or seven. Return on day eight if no symptoms develop.

    * Unless fully vaccinated or previously ill with CoVID-19 within the previous three months and recovered, and without any symptoms.
  12. All quarantined and isolated students will access instruction/lessons asynchronously via Canvas and/or Enboard SSO portal while away from the classroom. Arrangements may be made with the classroom teacher and/or school principal for the supply of assignments for students who will be absent from school more than two days.
  13. Unless otherwise communicated in the case of CoVID-19 community spread, there will be no event restrictions or permissions required from local health authorities until further notice.
  14. Vaccination status of students and adults will not be known to ZCS unless a CoVID-19 positive case and close contact situation calls vaccination status into question (regarding quarantine or isolation need or duration).
  15. Parents should keep ill children at home and report CoVID-19 symptoms and positive test results to the child’s school.
  16. Parents may refer to this link for current symptoms to monitor.
  17. Siblings of ill children with pending CoVID test results should remain home until results or an alternative diagnosis is received.
  18. The Superintendent and/or designee(s) are authorized to make CoVID-19 protocol adjustments in safety practices of any kind to include, but not limited to, school scheduling, closure, masking and social distancing, limits upon event size and/or participation specifics until further notice.

    This virus, its variants, the inconveniences, and the real devastation to some individuals’ health have not ended, and our school board and leadership team will continue to exercise their responsibilities to implement the school program in accordance with public health and governmental officials’ guidance and/or directive(s).

Parents: Please keep ill children at home and report CoVID-like symptoms immediately.

GROW Programming (Child Care Services)

Visit for information on Before and After Care (BAC), Bridge and middle school JAM programs.


State law stipulates that school children’s medical records must show that required immunizations have been completed by the 20th day of the school year. That day is August 30, 2021. The CoVID-19 vaccine is not one of these mandatory immunizations as of this writing.

Information regarding immunization requirements for 2021-2022 can be found here. Parents of children whose immunizations are not up to date should contact their health care provider or the Boone County Health Department to schedule an appointment for the necessary immunizations. Some pharmacies also carry the necessary vaccines.

Children who do not have up-to-date vaccination records by August 30, 2021, will not be allowed to return to school until the proper immunization information is on file. If parents object to immunizations, a written objection must be on file in the school office by that date. This must be updated yearly. Students who have appointments with their health care provider after August 30, 2021, must present proof of the scheduled appointment in order to remain in school. Please contact the health clinic at your school with any questions or concerns.

ZCS school nursing services are provided by St. Vincent/Ascension Health. Need a health care provider? Visit

During the school day, all visitors must enter via the front door and sign in at the front office. Visitors need to be prepared to present a government issued photo ID which will be scanned against the National Sex Offender Registry. All visitors will be issued a badge/tag to be worn inside the building at all times. Examples include:

  • Classroom Guest Speakers
  • Classroom Special Events
  • Parent/Teacher Conferences

We ask that all visitors schedule an appointment to meet with teachers, counselors, administrators and all other staff members so that we may best serve everyone.

Visitors other than parents/guardians must be prearranged and organized through the main office. ZCS thanks all volunteers for their generous support of our youth and schools. Thank you, too, for supporting assurance of student and staff safety by completing and paying for a volunteer background check.

Background Checks for Volunteers

We value partnerships with our families and always welcome parents, guardians and community members to serve as volunteers in our schools. Each ZCS building covers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities. Examples include:

  • Field Trip or After Prom Chaperones
  • Tutors
  • Volunteer Coaches
  • Classroom and Library Helpers
  • Field Day and Jog-A-Thon Volunteers
  • Book Fair and Athletic Ticket Sales

During the school day, all volunteers are expected to sign in at the front office. Prior to the volunteer opportunity, all volunteers must sign a Nondisclosure Acknowledgement Form and have successfully completed a Full Criminal History Background Check. All necessary background check paperwork is available on the ZCS website at the Volunteers/BRAVO link and should be submitted at least 10 days prior to the intended volunteer date. Volunteers must also view mandatory videos and fill out required forms found on the Volunteer/BRAVO website.

The volunteer will pay the fee for the full background check which will expire after five years. The link to apply for the full background check can be accessed on the Volunteers/BRAVO link on the ZCS main webpage. For more information, contact the Volunteer/BRAVO Coordinator.

Reminder: All instruction-based visitors (i.e. tutors, private music lessons, guest speakers, etc.) will be required to complete a C-19 Waiver.

Please ensure that your e-mail address and cell phone number are up to date throughout the school year to ensure you are receiving critical information pertaining to your student's school.


Students in Zionsville Community Schools use the learning management system, Canvas. To create a parent observer account, follow the directions in this link.
