Three Tier Bussing - School Start Times
Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, Warren will be implementing a three-tier transportation schedule. As a result, there are new school start times for our students. These changes will allow us to provide a safer and more efficient transportation experience for our students. More information will be available on our website and at registration in July.
High School (9-12): 7:15 am - 2:20 pm
Elementary School (K-4): 8:05 am - 3:05 pm
Intermediate/Middle School (5-8): 8:55 am - 3:55 pm
Warren Early Childhood Center & Renaissance: 8:55 am - 3:55 pm
The 5-8 Experience - 1 Intermediate/Middle School
In an effort to provide our students, families and staff a more coherent 4-year experience in grades 5 through 8, MSD Warren will be moving from a two-school model to a one-school model. Currently, our students spend two years in the intermediate academy and another two years at the middle school. Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, our students will spend 4 years in their intermediate/middle school. Within this model, there is one school principal with an administrator and counselor supporting each grade level. These support teams will travel with the students from year to year. This will allow them to build significant relationships with their students and families over the 4 years. This model will lessen transitions from students and families, create common expectations and procedures during the 4 years, allow for more extracurricular access to 5th and 6th graders, and create a single identity for the school community. Registration for the intermediate/middle school level is July 16th (5th/6th) and July 17th (7th/8th) from 12:00 noon - 8:00 pm. Families with students in multiple grades can register either day.
Supporting the Whole Child - Social Emotion Curriculum
In the 2019-2020 school year, to support the board goal of supporting the whole child by providing the instruction and support for the development of their social and emotional well-being to ensure our students are socially and emotionally strong, every K-8 student will receive direct instruction in social emotional skills using the Second Steps curriculum. To ensure coherence, PBIS Tier 1 teams will work this summer to create a scope and sequence, as well as roll out plans that align with other building initiatives and goals. We look forward to the enhanced experiences and strengthened relationships our students will foster with the new skills acquired this upcoming school year.
Community Eligibility Provision (CEP)
At the May 15, 2019 MSD Warren School Board meeting, the board approved to implement the Community Eligibility Provision to allow all MSD Warren students to have access to free lunch in addition to free breakfast during the school year. This program is available to all students in every MSD Warren school. It is important to note that this program is not related to textbook rental. Families who need textbook rental support will still be required to complete a Textbook Rental application after July 1, 2019. More information can be found on our website.
