Good Evening Lakeside Families,
As we prepare to finish the 2019-20 school year and continue to plan for the upcoming 20-21 school year, I wanted to share some information about both. Students who are currently in Kindergarten through 11th grade will be allowed to use their district assigned device over the summer. If you do not need the device or will not be attending Lakeside next year, you can turn your device in during materials pick the first week of June or Monday - Friday from 11:00 - 1:00 at the Walker Career Center, Door 70. When turning in your device, you need to include the iPad or Chromebook, the charger, chrome book plastic shell, and carrying case.
Early in June, we will be mailing grade level summer learning packets to all students in grades K-8. These packets will focus on essential math and reading skills as well as social-emotional skills. Students will receive an incentive for completing their packet upon returning it to school in the fall.
The Ransburg YMCA and other greater Indianapolis YMCA locations are now offering child care, ages 5-12, for essential worker families. For more information, you can visit www.indyymca.org or call 317-484-9622.
Please remember that all schools will be distributing student's personal items, including end of year reports cards, and collecting textbooks and library books via a drive-through service the first week of June. If you have personal items at your child's school you want to retrieve, please complete this survey at (bit.ly/endofyearpickup) to assist us. Our Lakeside staff will be packing up these items over the next few weeks to prepare for distribution the first week of June starting with Wednesday, June 3rd from 12-6 pm with last names A-M, Thursday, June 4th from 12-6 pm with last names N-Z, and Friday, June 5th, 9 am-12 pm as our make up day.
Please stay connected by visiting our website, downloading our mobile app, viewing our district social media twitter and Facebook accounts for updated information.
Have a great and safe Memorial Day Weekend!

Click here to see some guidance on frequently asked questions:
Technology Needs Survey
MSD of Warren Township is evaluating our technology needs and how to better serve our families and students of the district. Since iPads and Chromebooks require a WiFi connection, we are interested to know whether our students have access to WiFi at home.
As a parent or guardian of a student attending a Warren school, you have online access to your child or children's courses, grades, attendance, discipline, and academic history. The student and parent portal has been upgraded to Tyler SIS Student 360. This new portal offers parents, students and district staff online access to student information via the Web on PCs or tablets or on a smartphone application — providing comprehensive functionality with a touch-friendly, intuitive interface. Read more about it by clicking here.
You must obtain a username and password through your child's teacher in order to access your child's information.

SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLICATIONS/NEWS MEDIA USE
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.
