Parent & Student Resources
Whether you’ve been part of our family, or are new to IHS, below are lists of resources for both students and parents to utilize. If you can’t find what you need, use the Search Box at the bottom of any page or in our school website menu at the top, or contact us for assistance.
Student Driver Information
Getting your driver's permit?
A Compulsory Attendance letter is required as proof of school attendance when a student applies for their driver’s permit.
If the student already has a driver’s permit that is issued in the state of Tennessee and it has not expired, they will not need this letter to take the driver’s license test or to renew a permit (the state already has a letter on file from when the student initially took their permit test).
If the student has a license or permit from another state, or their Tennessee permit is expired, they will need this letter.
Parking Pass Application:
To purchase a parking pass for the 21-22 school year, you must have a valid Driver's License and have taken the Checkpoint Training class. You can then complete the Parking Permit application. Please only complete the application one time.
Parking Pass Payment:
After submitting the application, the $15 payment for the pass should be paid through the Online Fee Payment Portal. Students will be called down to Student Services to receive their parking pass.
