Warren/CCA Counseling Newsletter

March 2020

NISD Schools Closed Through May 4, 2020!

From your Admin Team:

Hello Warriors.

We hope all of you have had an opportunity to connect to your classes using google classroom. We understand there may be some internet connection issues to solve. You can still sign up for devices at Nisd.net. If you have not heard, Spectrum is offering high-speed internet to all families with school-age students free for 60 days.

If you are in an AP course, please reach out to your AP teacher for testing updates. Do not forget about all of the resources you can access from the Warren Library links. We miss the movement in the hallway and the chatter along the way. If you need any assistance from us, please send an email. Please see the link regarding assessments:

Seniors, my apologies, we await prom and graduation information together. I will share any and all updates as soon as I have information to share. Continue learning from a distance, remain hopeful, and know that you all are missed. Thank you, Warriors.

Mrs. Sisk & The Admin Team
