Liberty Park Families,


You should have received a phone call last evening as well as this afternoon updating your family about school closings for MSD Warren Township.


Some key things to remember are:

  • All schools will be closed starting today, Friday, March 13 through Friday, March 20. All buildings will be closed and practices, games, and events canceled at this time.

  • Spring Intersession starts Monday, March 23 and goes through Friday, April 3.

  • The Governor has granted waivers for missed instruction time; therefore, we will NOT be using eLearning days at this time.

  • Your students brought home eLearning lessons on Thursday. We will NOT be utilizing those lessons at this time. Please hold onto those for potential use at a later date.

  • On Monday, March 16th all buildings will be open from 12:00 - 5:00pm to allow staff and families an opportunity to pick up any needed items, medications, etc. After 5:00pm, buildings will be closed until after spring break.

  • A free grab and go lunch will be provided on each of the 6 days (Friday, March 13 and Monday, March 16 - Friday, March 20) and available for pick up at Warren Central High School, Door 1, from 11:00am - 1:00pm for all MSD Warren students.

  • Please continue to watch for further announcements concerning school closings by visiting our website at www.warren.k12.in.us.


As noted in the district letter sent home on March 9, MSD Warren Township is requesting that all staff and families travelling during spring break to a Level 2 or Level 3 state or country follow the Center for Disease Control (CDC) guidance of self-quarantine and self-report to school and district leaders. In accordance with CDC guidelines, those who choose to travel to states or countries with a CDC level 3 travel advisory for coronavirus must self-quarantine for 14 days. Travelers should also note that the possibility exists that a state or country experiencing an outbreak could suspend travel in or out and could result in travelers being stranded. This guidance in detail is linked to our district COVID-19 resource webpage. The webpage can be found under the Parent Tab or by visiting https://www.warren.k12.in.us/o/msd-of-warren-township/page/covid-19-coronavirus-disease-

2019



For your reference, below is the district message being sent this afternoon:

As you are aware, all Warren schools and buildings have closed starting today March 13th through April 5th working under the guidance of our local and state health departments. We understand that this announcement happened after school hours on Thursday and there may be personal items that students and staff need during this time. On Monday, March 16th, all buildings will be open from noon to 5:00 PM for staff and families to come in and pick up what they need. Nurses will be at schools during this time if parents need to pick up medications or health items. After 5:00 PM on Monday, March 13th, all buildings will be closed with no access until April 6th. All programs, activities and practices have been canceled during this time frame as well. Please make sure you gather needed items during this timeframe. We will continue to communicate updates as we have them.



For your reference, below is the district message that was sent out last evening:

Under the guidance of the Marion County Public Health Department, all schools in MSD Warren Township will be closed beginning Friday, March 13th through Friday, March 20th due to the Coronavirus based on an over abundance of caution. All buildings will be closed and practices, games and events canceled during this time.

We do not plan to use eLearning days at this time based on the Governor’s announcement of allowing waivers provided for missed instructional time. Please hold on to the materials that you received for eLearning for potential use at a later date.

Before and after school care at the Warren Early Childhood Center, is also closed.

A free grab and go lunch will be provided on each of the 6 days available for pick up at Warren Central High School, door 1, from 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM for all MSD Warren students.
