From the Principal
Safety. Recent data shows that Covid cases are on the rise in Indiana, as is the Covid test positivity rate in Marion County. This is a good time to remind patrons of MSD Warren Township's S.A.F.E Reopening plan. Though RP and Warren have protocols in place to respond to Covid, our best defense is prevention! The consistent and correct wearing of face coverings, social distancing, and frequent handwashing and sanitizing continue to serve as our best practices in preventing Covid. Kids will be reminded frequently, and the cooperation of all is demanded. Thank you for reinforcing the importance of these safety practices with your students as well.
Second Semester School Options. Families wanting to transition their students' classroom environment from in-person to virtual or visa-versa will have the opportunity to do so Nov 13 to Nov 24th. This will be the last opportunity to change the classroom environment for the 20-21 school year. The decision families make will be for the entirety of 2nd semester (3rd and 4th quarters). The form to complete to change school options will appear on the school website's banner beginning November 13.
Civility, Order, Respect, and Excellence (C.O.R.E.). Political, social and emotional chasms have been exposed in 2020 through Covid, social injustice and the presidential election. President-elect Biden has adopted “healing” as a theme to his transition into office. Regardless of political beliefs or affiliation, it is difficult to argue that our nation wouldn’t benefit from coming together. Afterall, our kids are watching intently, and they take their cue from important adults in their lives! This week, RP will have two opportunities to place focus back on the ideals of CORE:
A. Veteran’s Day is Wednesday. We will have a brief tribute as a part of the morning greeting. Teachers will also be encouraged to incorporate classroom discussion or activities as they can, especially those that emphasize the CORE ideal of Respect.
B. The week of November 9-13 is International Friendship Week, and Friday is World Kindness Day. Teachers will look for opportunities to incorporate friendship and kindness into classroom and schoolwide events.
Thank you for your continued support of the school as we continue to press on for the benefit of our kids. Please reach out to teachers, counselors and administrators when support is needed. Together, #warrenwill!
Proud to be a Ranger,
