Week of November 6, 2020
November 9th - Healthy Smiles visits Eastridge
November 12th - Skating Party at Roller Cave
CORE STUDENTS Week of November 6, 2020
Title 1 is a federally funded program that provides support for students and groups of students who are at risk of not mastering Indiana Academic Standards. In Warren Township, all elementary schools and middle schools are Title 1 served schools.
As the weather gets colder and restrictions have been eased, we encourage staff and families to stay the course with ensuring masks are worn and social distancing is followed to the extent possible. As more students are returning to class, teachers and administrators are working diligently to utilize every part of the classroom in an effort to support social distancing.
While numbers are fluid, there has been an increase in the positivity rate in Marion County. As of November 1, Marion County was at a 8.6% positivity rate. As a reminder, the Marion County Public Health Department has issued guidance for schools around criteria for in-person/hybrid/full virtual instruction.
As Dr. Hanson stated in his Wednesday call, we are continuing to follow the guidance of the Marion County Public Health Department, which can be found on their website marionhealth.org under the COVID-19 Dashboard, School Guidance Dashboard. With the current data, we will continue with our K-5 IN-PERSON, K-12 VIRTUAL, and 6-12 HYBRID schedules.
Moorhead Community Resource Center
This week has been great as we have been able to provide students with coats in time for the winter! We do have a select few left, that we are able to give out, please return the orange slip if you would like for your child to receive a coat. If we are unable to provide your student with a coat then I can reach out to Moorehead Community Center on your behalf to see if they have any additional coats. Please reach out if you need anything!
