Students, Parents, and Caregivers,
WOW! What an awesome first week of Learn at Home for our students and staff! We sincerely appreciate each family's efforts in getting your student online - we loved reconnecting with our students!
If your student is in need of a Chromebook, or if they have a school-issued device and it is in need of repair, you can vsit Warren Central HS, at Door 70, between 11am and 1pm any weekday (Monday - Friday) to pick up a Chromebook or have yours repaired.
Learn at Home Lessons and Choice-boards will be available by 8am on Monday morning of each week at bit.ly/msdwarrenlearnathome. Students should plan to review lessons and activities, work through them throughout the week, and plan to share their work with the teacher of their various class subjects.
Remember - all teachers are available for virtual office hours on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week from 9am - 10am. Students/caregivers can also call or email teachers any time, and can expect timely responses during the hours of 9am - 4pm every weekday.
All students have Virtual Community Time (Core Connect class) on Tuesday and Thursday from 9-10 a.m.
If you have questions or feedback related to online learning and the Learn at Home lessons, please use our eLearning hotline phone number 317-608-0545 or email MSDWarrenELEARNING@warren.k12.in.us.
Many families have reached out asking to return to the building to retrieve items from student lockers; we will make sure to find time to do this later this semester once it is safer to be in large groups and the spread of the virus has slowed.
Wishinig you and your family safety and wellness,Mrs. Carey Storm

Indianapolis Colts - The House of Blue
This time of year, Blue (the Colts mascot) is typically traveling Indiana performing school shows. Although our current circumstances do not allow him to do so, the Mascot Program has remained committed to bringing fun and educational messages to all students through these uncertain times.
Which is why Blue and his family have started a new YouTube series, The House of Blue. Each episode features various segments. Some examples:
· Did you Know – A teaching moment of the show
· Kids’ Table – Featuring Blue’s children
· Cooking with Carol – a cooking show with me
· Mascot Minute – featuring one of Blue’s mascot friends
We hope this can be an additional resource for you and your students as they transition to digital learning. Below you can find a links to each of the episodes and the episode playlist on YouTube, where you can check back for new episodes!
