September 9 Update Graphic

September 9, 2020 

Good Afternoon Warren Students, Families, and Staff, 

I have several important updates this week: 

The window for K-8  families to request a change from IN-PERSON to VIRTUAL or VIRTUAL to IN-PERSON for the 2nd quarter will be open from Friday, September 11th to Monday, September 21st. The schedule change will officially take place after fall intersession break on Monday, October 19th. Principals will be sharing additional information in their Friday communication. 

We are experiencing some additional growing pains with our new student information system. It is displaying midterm grades from some students, but not all students. We are working to fix this as soon as possible. Please know this is not a reflection of your child’s performance or anything that our teachers are not doing. If your child’s midterm grades are not displaying, you can contact your child’s teachers for a progress update.  

Sonny Day Pantry is holding a food and clothing distribution this Saturday, September 12th  from 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM. Sonny Day is currently working out of Highlander Park located at 10502 E. 21st Street. Items are available on a first come first serve basis. 

The 2020 Census is open until September 30th. The results of the Census help support  our communities with financial resources for safety, education, roads, and other public services. The Census can be completed online at

We have been asked to help out the Indianapolis Public Library and their strategic planning process.  This survey is open for everyone – not just people who use the library! There’s a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card as an incentive!  The survey is due on Sept. 12 and can be found at

Thank you Warren students, staff and families for your resiliency and patience as we continue to navigate this school year. Make the rest of your week, the best of your week!
