MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

Parents, Caregivers, & Students -


The Warren Community Family Resource Center, in cooperation with MLT Mentoring & Sonny Day, will be hosting a food distribution event with fresh produce and meat from Gleaners. The distribution will take place on Monday, July 27th beginning at 3:30 pm and ending no later than 5:30 pm at the new Moorhead Community Resource Center, located at 8400 East 10th Street, Indianapolis. Supplies are limited, so distribution will be on a first come, first serve basis. We would like to thank all of our families for allowing us to serve you during the summer months and these difficult times.


Linked below is the MSD Warren Township S.A.F.E. reopening plan which outlines plans for the return to school.


A few things to remember:


  • First student day for the 2020-2021 school year is AUGUST 6th.
  • 5th graders who did not select virtual learning will attend in-person instruction every school day.
  • 6th, 7th, and 8th graders who did not select virtual learning will attend school in person every other day.
  • You can call our main office (317-532-6800) to make an appointment if you have specific registration needs (new families) or other questions. Only those who have scheduled appointments will be permitted into the building. At this time, we are only accepting appointments related to registration/enrollment needs.
  • All other inquiries related to virtual or in person learning will be answered via phone.


It is my sincere hope that you and your family are well - please stay safe and take care of yourselves!


Full of Creston Pride,

REGISTRATION INFORMATION for 20-21 YEAR

Warren Township is accepting new registrations for the 20-21 school year. If your student ended the school year in a Warren Township school, you do NOT need to take any additional action to be registered for school. If you are new to Warren Township and want to register your student for the upcoming school year, you must call our main office at 317-532-6800 to make an appointment. At this time, to protect the health and safety of our main office staff, we are asking families to make appointments so we can keep an appropriate number of families in our reception/registration area to maintain social distancing.

2020 Pesticide Notification Registry

The Indiana Pesticide Review Board has regulations that impact how school corporations may use pesticides on school grounds. MSD Warren Township follows these guidelines and we are inviting parents and guardians to join our Pesticide Notification Registry. By signing up for this registry, you will be notified via email at least 48 hours prior to a pesticide application at your child’s school, subject to certain exceptions. You will be invited to sign up for this notification each school year.

You will need to sign up for this notification every school year.

If you would like to participate, please complete the required form found at www.warren.k12.in.us.
