WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools has scheduled additional eLearning dates in order to make up school days that have been missed due to dangerous weather conditions. Making up lost instructional time in this manner allows students to be dismissed for the summer in late May as opposed to June.
The additional eLearning days will be held on the following Saturdays: March 17, March 24; April 21; and May 19. These days will allow the last student day to remain as scheduled for Friday, May 25.
In the future, Warsaw Community Schools will implement eLearning days on the day of the cancellation. This change will begin during the 2018-2019 school year and allow added convenience making up school days for WCS parents, students, staff and community members.
All student assignments for the eLearning Day will be posted by 9 a.m. on the district and school website. The district website may be accessed by visiting http://www.warsaw.k12.in.us and the school web site may be accessed by visiting http://yourschoolname.warsaw.k12.in.us. All lessons will be organized by school and teacher. Each teacher’s page will provide specific instructions for the assignments to be completed or links to commonly used learning tools such as Canvas.
The assignments may be completed on the actual eLearning Day or may be completed and turned in any time prior to the start of school on the Thursday following the eLearning day. Completion of the assignments will allow the student to be counted as in attendance on the eLearning Day. Any student who fails to turn in the assignments by the deadline will be counted absent for the eLearning Day.
On the eLearning Day, teachers may be contacted by email or other established means of communication with any questions about assignments. Additionally, a technology support line will be available for any general technology questions by calling (574) 371-5088 from 9 a.m. until noon.
For individuals that do not have Internet connectivity at home, students may use the wireless network that extends out into the parking lot around all of our school buildings or use the free wireless Internet service and/or computers at the Warsaw Community Public Library. Computer labs will also be made available before and after school the week following an eLearning day.
