SYRACUSE — Dr. Tom Edington, superintendent of the Wawasee Community School Corporation, released the following information late Tuesday afternoon, April 7:
“It is looking and feeling like spring, although going away for a break isn’t in the plans this year.
“Our school radio station, 93.7, will broadcast an Easter Sunday service at 11 a.m., as a public service for the local ministerial association. Jeremy VanLue, broadcasting teacher, will receive recordings from the ministerial association and combine them into a single broadcast.
“Student lockers will be cleaned out soon by custodians with contents bagged and labeled with student names. Those bags will be distributed to students at a later time.
“Administrators and teachers will meet soon to formulate a plan for May instruction which best meets the needs of students, teachers, and parents. Wawasee is going to be fine in meeting Gov. Holcomb’s 160 days of instruction requirement.
“Many parents have not only been very complimentary of the teachers’ efforts to reach and instruct their children, but also the personal messages teachers are sending to motivate and bolster students.
“We hope to complete the selection process for a Wawasee Middle School principal soon and begin the Milford School principal selection process next week.
“Classes begin again, online or in packets, next week following the learning plan for April 13-May 1 that was sent to parents. Thank you for supporting your children and our students through this unusual method of learning.
“We are feeding students during spring break week. Numbers continue to rise as school parents face layoffs. We have been told the worst may be yet come to our area in the fight against the virus.
“Thank you for supporting our school efforts to keep the spreading to a minimum. We wish that we could wish it away!
“The high school is formulating plans for grades, credits, scholarships, graduation, and other ‘up in the air’ items and will communicate with students, parents and the community.”
