July 22 Update Graphic

July 22, 2020 

Good Afternoon Warren Students, Families, and Staff, 

Last week, our school board approved our 2020-2021  S.A.F.E. Reopening Plan which included a modified start date of Thursday, August 6th.  Our full reopening plan can be found on our district website. We will continue to monitor the local COVID-19 data and consult with the Marion County Public Health Department and make adjustments as needed to ensure the safety of our students and staff. 

With the deadline for families to select VIRTUAL being July 20th, our teams are now working diligently to schedule courses, create bus routes, and develop class rosters for all of our IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL students.  Families can expect to receive information on these things next week and the first week of August. 

Families with students in grades 9-12  who selected the VIRTUAL option will receive a phone call from their school counselor to assist with scheduling their classes for the upcoming school year. Please allow a few days for counselors to reach out to all of their students. 

Our food outreach will no longer be operating on Wednesday evenings. Our food outreach will continue on Tuesdays and Fridays from 11:00 - 1:00. 

Warren's Sonny Day Community Center will have a distribution this Thursday, July 23 from 6 - 7:30 pm at Highlander Park. Via a drive through distribution, the Eastside Rotary Club will be volunteering and giving out food & toiletry items, school supplies and school clothes. 

I appreciate the patience and understanding that our families and staff have displayed during this ever changing situation. We will continue to be deliberate and mindful of creating plans that provide the best experience for our students and staff.
