Medication in the Clinic

If your student has any kind of medication in the school clinic, please be sure to pick this up by our last day of school, Monday, June 3rd. In Warren Township, students grades K-8 are not allowed to transport medication on the school bus; therefore medication must be picked up by a parent or guardian, or someone designated by the parent or guardian over the age of 18 years old. Any medication not picked up by the end of the school day on June 3rd will be disposed of appropriately by our school nurse. We cannot keep medications in the clinic over the summer break. Please call Mrs. Cooper at 317- 532-2855 if you have any questions.

Attendance Matters, Facts Matters, Information Matters

1. Absenteeism and its ill effects start early. One in 10 kindergarten and first-grade students are chronically absent. Read more...

2. Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade or be held back. Read more...

3. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence. Read more...

4. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating. Read more...

Lost and Found

We currently have many personal items in the Lost and Found bins located in the school clinic. Please check with your child and if they are missing any clothing, jackets, books, lunchboxes, or other personal items, please have them check our bins. Any item not claimed by the end of the year will be donated to a worthy charity.

Outside Recess

It’s that time of year when we need to remind student to make sure they have appropriate clothing for recess. The district policy states students will be going outside for recess if the temperature and the wind chill are above 20 degrees. We have extra coats, hats, and gloves for students in need. Please contact the front office if you need assistance.

Students must go outside unless we have a doctor statement.


While we love to celebrate, please remember that there is a “no birthday treats “ guideline. To access fun and helpful resources for healthy celebration ideas please visit the district wellness policy by clicking on this link. Also, note that no birthday invitations are allowed to be distributed at school. It is school policy.


The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child’s school. This may include your child’s photo, your child’s name or your child’s work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child’s achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child’s school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
