Good Afternoon Warren Students, Families and Staff,
Please find our monthly Warren newsletter linked to this email and on our website by clicking Newsroom under the Explore Tab.
I cannot believe that today marks our 10th day of school this year! I again want to commend our students, staff, and families for your patience and resiliency as we start this school year. I am reminded how much I and others appreciate a predictable routine.
We are continuing to make adjustments to both our IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL programs. Recently, we had to make some staffing changes to ensure that our IN-PERSON and VIRTUAL classes were balanced. Teachers and principals will be reaching out to those families impacted by these changes.
I want to say thank you to our parents for partnering with us to help keep our classrooms safe. Our parents have done a great job of communicating with us and keeping their kids at home when they are not feeling well. We know attendance is a critical part of a student's success, but the safety of everyone is our top priority. Please continue to communicate with your child’s school if your son or daughter is experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19 or has been tested for COVID-19. In either situation, please keep your child at home.
We have added a new process for parents and caregivers to communicate their needs for technology support. If you have a tech or device need, please submit a help ticket through IncidentIQ support system by clicking on Technology under the Explore Tab and then select Parent Tech Info. We will continue to provide device support at Moorhead Community Resource Center Monday - Friday from 11:00 - 1:00.
MSD Warren Township is a CEP district which allows ALL of our students to receive breakfast and lunch at no cost to our families. This does not, however, include Textbook Rental. If you qualify for and wish to receive Free Textbook Rental this school year and you are not Directly Certified, you will need to complete an application either online at lunchapplication.com or by visiting your child’s school for an application.
Our next breakfast and lunch distribution for all Virtual families will be this Friday at Moorhead Community Resource Center from 8:00 - 9:30. Please enter door 1, and visit the cafeteria. We are evaluating our participation data and will be making adjustments to the times starting the week of August 31st. More details will be provided next week.
We appreciate your support in Warren schools and I hope your school year is off to a great start.
Dr. Tim Hanson, Superintendent of Schools for MSD Warren Township
