SYRACUSE — Dr. Tom Edington, superintendent of the Wawasee Community School Corporation, released the following information Tuesday, June 2, pertaining to the summer and the 2020-21 school year:
“Now that summer is finally here, we are busy preparing for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year at Wawasee Community School Corporation. Our team is hard at work making sure school facilities are as prepared and clean as possible to welcome back students in early August.
“Our first student day is currently set for Aug. 13, and we are moving forward with plans to have students back in buildings. In an effort to assist our families, we have already pre-registered all current kindergarten through 11th grade Wawasee students for next school year. Below are links for pre-registration for incoming kindergarten students, and any students new to Wawasee.
“While we are hopeful and planning for an on-time start, we will continue to wait for additional guidance from Governor Eric Holcomb and the Indiana Department of Education, which is due to be released on or before July 1. As we continue to organize for next school year, there are plenty of things going on this summer in our school communities.
“Wawasee High School has opted to hold an in-person graduation for the graduating class of 2020, which will occur the morning of Saturday, July 18. Mr. Walmer and our high school leadership team released details regarding the graduation earlier. Additionally, we are planning to host a three week on-site summer school session from July 20 to Aug. 7. We are hopeful this session can serve as a jump start into the 2020-21 school year, especially for some of our elementary students who may be lacking in critical foundation-skills.
“Finally, we are currently planning to do in-person registration in buildings Aug. 3 and 4. If you would prefer a digital option, online registration opens July 21.
“As we look forward to the 2020-2021 school year, we know there are plenty of unanswered questions. Some of this will become more clear during the coming weeks, but some things can’t be addressed until we get started in the fall. That being said, our focus remains on what we can control and what we are able to plan for at this time. We know flexibility will be key in our decision making, but we are looking forward to the day when we can safely welcome our students and families back into our school buildings.
“Please don’t hesitate to contact us or your building principals if you have any questions or concerns. We are here to help.”
