The snow storm that hit yesterday has not let up at all. We unfortunately need to close for a second day. All predictions indicate we will be back in the office tomorrow. Again, please contact your coordinator by email or firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to speak with someone via the phone.
Due to inclement weather in the Denver area, IAN must close our office today 10/28. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please feel free to email your coordinators and those of us with Internet at home will do our best to respond to you in a timely manner. If you need to speak with someone today, please email email@example.com for the contact information.

Hi Families! Today we are moving offices (just across the hall). This means our phone and Internet systems will be intermittent at best. If you do not hear back from our office today please know that we will get to you as soon as we can. We expect to be up and running by the end of the day. We reccomend following up any phone messages with an email as there is a chance our voicemails will not carry over smoothly with the move.
Thank you and we are sorry for any incvonvenience!
