On behalf of Warsaw Community Schools, allow me to be among the first to say welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. With the start of a new school year we at Warsaw Schools are very excited for the opportunity to continue furthering our mission “to inspire and equip all students to continuously acquire and apply knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others.”

The start of a new school year is an exciting time filled with new possibilities for growth and learning. As we look forward to a year filled with educational opportunities and achievements for students and staff alike, we also reflect on our past successes. Throughout the past year, WCS staff have worked diligently to further develop course opportunities, enhance facilities and imagine innovative new ways to equip all students with knowledge and skills while pursuing their dreams and enriching the lives of others. This pursuit has led to national and state recognitions of student achievements.

At Warsaw Community Schools, we are committed to the pursuit of a future-ready curriculum that meets the needs of both our community and students alike. Through community input within our strategic planning process, advancement in social emotional learning, safety and security, STEM advancements at all levels, dual and AP college credit offerings, dual language immersion growth, career pathway expansion and facility and infrastructure upgrades we continue to meet the academic growth of our students.

Our Board of School Trustees, staff and administration wish to extend our gratitude for the community’s support as we open our doors to the start of a great year. WCS welcomes your visits, comments and partnerships in education. Please feel free to contact us. We are here to serve and partner in our community’s education with you!

The deadline for all WCS Students to have immunizations completed and turned into their school nurse for the 2018-2019 school year is Aug. 14, the first day of school. According to IC 20-34-4-5, students in all grades are required to meet the minimum immunization requirements set forth by the Indiana State Department of Health, no later than the first day of school attendance.

Parents need to provide proof of their student’s immunization status, either as a written document from the health care provider who administered the immunization or documentation provided from the state immunization data registry.

In Indiana, exemptions are allowed for medical or religious reasons. Each exemption has specific rules for filing, so please check with the school nurse for the required annual documentation.

Parents of new students enrolling into WCS must provide the school with written immunization documentation. Each state can differ on their requirements, so please know that your student might require additional immunizations for school attendance.

The Immunization requirements for the 2018-19 school year are listed on the Indiana CHIRP and Warsaw Community Schools- Health Services websites. Please note that both 6th graders and 12th graders have additional immunization requirements.

Questions about immunizations can be directed to the school nurse in each building. They will be available starting Aug. 8. You may also contact Tracey Akers, Nurse coordinator at trakers@warsawschools.org.
