A Message From The Principal
Thank you for entrusting your student with us in-person and virtually. These first two days of school were a success and I am looking forward to the coming weeks. Students have had a chance to move through their schedule if they are attending in-person and virtual students should be able to see all courses within Canvas. Do not hesitate to reach out to any of your student's teachers with questions or just to check in on your student's progress. All teacher emails can be accessed via the Renaissance website at renaissance.warren.k12.in.us. A link can be found within this newsletter.
Friendly reminder that Renaissance students are attending Monday thru Friday and are either assigned to an AM session or PM session. For those attending in-person transportation is available to and from school. If you are in need of your student's bus pick up time please call 317-532-2820. Student getting dropped off will enter at door 2. We are practicing social distancing and ask that if your student is an AM student that you don't drop off before 8:40 and if a PM student you don't drop before 12:50.
Again, I am excited about the school year and look forward to working with you and your student. I will be continuing my regular Friday afternoon calls and emails to ensure your are kept updated on what is happening here at Renaissance.

New Student Information System-- Synergy
Warren is excited to announce that we have upgraded to a new student information system called Synergy. This means that our old parent portal, Tyler, will be going away. Instead, the parent portal will be upgraded to Synergy’s ParentVUE. ParentVUE is an online tool to help you monitor your student’s education. It allows you to update contact information and provides you with access to the latest information about your child’s attendance and scheduling. Our middle and high school families can view class assignments, report card grades, and course history with ParentVUE.
Once ParentVUE is available, parents who have a previous Tyler account will receive an email with instructions about setting up your new username and password. If you do not have a Tyler SIS account, please complete a registration form located on our parent portal webpage and return it to your school to begin the process of activating your account.
ParentVUE is a great way to stay connected with your student's school and track their academic progress. It also helps us stay in contact with you!
Chromebooks! Please Bring Your Device Daily!
In an attempt to keep students safe we are asking that students bring their individual devices from home to school daily. There will be no sharing of Chromebooks. Chromebooks will not be available in classrooms. Students will need to bring their devices, charging chords, and cases everyday to school.
