Dear Families, 

Welcome to a new school year! The Vincent M. Igo School is a student-centered 
neighborhood school with talented children, dedicated faculty and staff, and an involved 
parent community. Igo radiates a strong home-school connection. Our school is home to 
approximately four hundred students and is the largest elementary school in the 
Foxborough Public Schools. The faculty and staff work hard each day to provide all 
students with a challenging and high-quality educational experience. We believe that by 
working together as partners in education, we can ensure that your children’s elementary 
experience is as exciting, rewarding and productive as possible. 

The Igo School has developed a tradition and culture of high expectations for both 
academics and behavior. It is our belief that every child can learn. We instill an inclusive 
environment that celebrates diversity, culture, and all learning styles. The invested 
partnerships established between the students, teachers and parents enhances students’ 
learning and development. We strive to stimulate all children’s intellectual curiosity and 
love of learning. In the process of acquiring skills and knowledge, we encourage students 
to ask questions, take risks and be willing to make mistakes in their quest for greater 
understanding. We work to create a climate based on caring relationships that 
communicate possibilities and hope. The challenges facing our students require problem 
solving, communication, and teamwork in order to achieve success. Each day provides 
valuable opportunities for our students to learn and grow. The strength of our school 
depends upon the cooperation and effort of teachers and parents in the educational 
process. Research, experience and commonsense confirms that a strong home/school 
relationship is vital to a child’s success. We take pride in the educational programs offered 
to students and believe that every child is special and capable of learning. We are proud 
of our school and invite you to be involved at all levels. 

This handbook has been prepared as a source of information for you and your child 
concerning the philosophy, policies and operational procedures of Igo School. It is 
important that you review and discuss its contents with your child. We look forward to a 
rewarding school year filled with memories to last a lifetime. Here at Igo we are truly 
excited and energized to begin a new school year with our students and families!
