WARSAW – Warsaw Community Schools has formed a graduation task force consisting of select senior students, parents, school board members, and faculty who are working to develop a plan to make graduation a special ceremony for all graduates.
WCS continues to offer the opportunity to submit suggestions for the task force to review regarding potential alternative graduation options. The link is https://bit.ly/WCSClassof2020, the school said in a prepared statement.
Warsaw Schools has two important announcements for seniors that would be solidified if Gov. Eric Holcomb lifts the “stay at home” order spurred by the pandemic.
First, WCS is proposing a plan to distribute senior items for graduation. This would occur on Friday, May 8. Organizers will establish a schedule by assigned time-slot in alphabetical order according to the senior’s last name.
Details will be published and available on the district website. Students will pick up pre-ordered announcements; caps; gowns; honor cords; and Tri-Kappa Awards.
Any items not collected on Friday, May 8 can be retrieved from WCHS Main Office beginning on Monday, May 11. WCHS Main Office is open from 9 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday until May 28 for this purpose.
Meanwhile, principals and counselors are planning to work with Stephanie Overbey, CEO of Kosciusko County Community Foundation, to offer a “virtual” or taped Senior Awards Night.
More details will be published as they become available on the district website, warsawschools.org.
“WCS would like to thank the Class of 2020 and their families for their patience and understanding as we continue to move forward together,” the statement said.
The school district announced plans for distributing graduation signs this week.
