The first eLearning Day for 2017-2018 for Warsaw Community Schools will take place on Saturday, Feb. 17. This day and March 17, have been scheduled to make up school days that have been missed due to dangerous weather conditions. Making up lost instructional time in this manner allows students to be dismissed for the summer in late May as opposed to June.

eLearning Day Procedures

All student assignments for the eLearning Day will be posted by 9 a.m. on the district and school website. The district website may be accessed by visiting http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us and the school web site may be accessed by visiting http://yourschoolname.warsaw.k12.in.us (ie: http://claypool.warsaw.k12.in.us). All lessons will be organized by school and grade level. Each teacher’s page will provide specific instructions for the assignments to be completed as well as optional enrichment activities. If the teacher has included a parent signature form for student assignments, the parent or guardian will need to sign and return the form to school to verify lesson completion.

The assignments may be completed on the actual eLearning Day or may be completed and turned in any time prior to the start of school on the following Thursday, Feb. 22. Completion of the assignments will allow the student to be counted as in attendance on the eLearning Day. Any student who fails to turn in the assignments by the deadline will be counted absent for the eLearning Day.

On the eLearning Day, teachers may be contacted by email or other established means of communication with any questions about assignments. Additionally, a technology support line will be available for any general technology questions by calling 574-371-5088 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

A Madison Elementary sixth grade student recently visited the Indiana House Committee on Public Health to share his petition in regards to a proposal to raise taxes on cigarettes sold in Indiana.

Cayman Blake, son of Dan and Heidi Blake of Warsaw, was invited to speak by Indiana Representative Charlie Brown after the two met during a tobacco-free advocacy event held at the Indiana Statehouse.

On Monday, Jan. 29, Blake shared his passionate appeal on why he believed the committee should support HB 1380’s goal of raising taxes and the legal age to purchase tobacco.

Heidi Blake states though the bill did not pass the full house vote, Cayman is proud to have had the opportunity to speak and enrich the lives of others. Blake noted Cayman plans to continue to be involved in his community and in supporting campaigns for tobacco-free kids and teens.
