Warsaw Community Schools will open on-line registration in July of 2015.  A new on-line software system for registration will help streamline the process and offer parents a way to register multiple children at once.  All schools will continue to hold building registration as in the past.  WCS encourages parents to register on-line prior to the building registration dates to expedite the process in the buildings.  The new on-line registration process will be accessed as before through PowerSchool.  Log on information will be sent out during the month of June to all existing students.  New students to our system are encouraged to contact your school to begin the enrollment process in July.

In-building Registration Dates and Times:
July 29, 2015        1:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
July 30, 2015        8:30 a.m.  -  7:30 p.m.
July 31, 2015        9:00 a.m.  -  1:00 p.m.

Today is a sad day for many of us as it is the last day the Blue Apron will be open. I was lucky enough to jump back in the kitchen and snap this photo of our hard working students, Chef Bragg and Mrs. Kawsky, who have served us all year long. It has been great to see so many of you enjoy lunch at the Blue Apron throughout the year. Please join me in thanking Chef Bragg, Sharon Porter, Ronna Kawsky and our very talented WACC students who have made the Blue Apron the best restaurant in town!

Thank you Blue Apron!

Can't wait to see what's on the menu next year...

It is that time of year again.  The weather is getting warmer and we are spending more time outside.  One of the most important things we can do during this time of year is keep ourselves hydrated and know the signs and symptoms of heat exhaustion and dehydration.

Heat Exhaustion signs and symptoms can include: confusion, dizziness, fainting, fatigue, headache, muscle cramps, nausea, vomiting, profuse sweating and rapid heartbeat.

Heat Exhaustion treatment: Get out of the heat immediately and rest, preferably in an air conditioned room.  Find the nearest cool or shaded place.  Drink plenty of fluid with no caffeine or alcohol in it.  Remove tight clothing.  Take a cool shower or bath.  Apply cool towels or use fans.

Dehydration signs and symptoms can include: thirst, dry mouth, darker yellow urine, dry skin, headache, muscle cramps, rapid heartbeat, dizziness, breathing rapidly.

Dehydration treatment: Drink water or sports drinks that contain electrolytes. See a doctor if there is change in person’s alertness, consciousness, has a fever of 102 degrees or higher, or if symptoms do not improve.

PREVENTION is the key to avoiding heat exhaustion and dehydration.  Drink plenty of fluids before and after any outdoor activities.  A general recommendation when exercising is to drink 17-20 ounces of fluid 2-3 hours before exercise, consume another 8 ounces during exercise every 20 minutes, and another 8 ounces within a half an hour of exercise.  Wear lightweight, light-colored clothing, a hat, and sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or more every time you go outside.
