Recess Monitor Needed

We are in need of an additional recess monitor. The hours would be 11:00-1:30 each day. Duties include supervising groups of students on the playground. You would not work when school is closed for inclement weather or during school vacations. If you enjoy working with children, this could be a great way to have a little extra money and still be able to be home for your family before and after school and on vacations. If you are interested in finding out more, please call the school office at 260-786-3021.

Winter Weather in Indiana and School Cancellations

Just a reminder, we have one more built in snow day. If we cancel due to weather, we will use the make up day on May 25th. After that day, we will have e-learning days similar to last year for the next three days we miss due to weather. Teachers will record lessons and students can complete the module anytime during the day. We are sending home IPADs every day just in case we have inclement weather. After the make up day and three traditional e-learning days are used up, we will begin using Synchronous Days with "live" instruction instead of pre-recorded lessons. We will send out more information on this as we get closer to needing to use a Synchronous Day. Synchronous means, "real-time interactions by video".
