Due to the upcoming ISTEP test, WCHS will be modifying its schedule to meet the needs of students during the testing window.

ISTEP testing begins the week of Feb. 26 and goes until March 9. Students will test with their classroom teachers. This means testing in math, English and biology will occur during the related class period.  To accommodate the length of the tests, the high school will run a double block schedule the first week of ISTEP testing.

During the week of Feb. 26, WCHS students will begin testing in English on Monday.  

February 27 will be an even block day with no late arrival. Students will have enrichment, then periods 2, 4 and 6 for 90 minutes each.  February 28, will be an odd period block, Thursday will be normal late arrival then even period block schedule. March 2 will be an odd period block.

On Feb. 27, students will report to Enrichment at 7:40 a.m., then begin English section 2 testing and attend classes according to a block schedule for periods 2, 4 and 6. 

The following week, WCHS will begin testing for the math section of ISTEP. On Monday and Tuesday, the schedule will follow a regular format for periods 1-7 with math sections one and two. Biology section one testing will be March 7 and 8, normal block schedule on these days.

Testing will take place for juniors retaking the ISTEP and sophomores completing the English and math testing requirements. Students will test with their math or English teacher during their class periods. Biology testing will take place for all freshman and sophomores currently taking biology.

Student attendance is important during ISTEP testing. Please ensure students bring a fully charged iPad for testing every day. Proper sleep and nutrition are vital for student success on these required assessments for graduation. From Feb. 26 through March 2, the cafeteria will also have free breakfast for students.

Warsaw Community Schools

eLearning Day Information for Secondary Parents


The first eLearning Day for 2017‐2018 for Warsaw Community Schools will take place on
Saturday, February 17, 2018. This day and March 17th have been scheduled 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.

eLearning Day Procedures


All student assignments for the eLearning Day will be posted by 9:00 a.m. on the district and school web site. 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://yourschool name.warsaw.k12.in.us (ie: http://wchs.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 following Thursday, February 22, 2018.
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

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

eLearning Day Resources


Also, 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.
Finally, one computer lab in each middle school and the WCHS Media Center will be open for
one hour each day after school on Tuesday, February 20th, and Wednesday, February 21st.

WCHS in conjunction with Warsaw Police Department participated in a routine canine sweep of the classrooms this morning. Lt. Joel Beam of WPD was instrumental in coordinating the efforts. The building was placed in a "lockout" mode where teachers continued to teach, yet hallway traffic was suspended. Three dogs and handlers conducted active classroom sweeps this morning. As always, we appreciated the cooperation of our students and staff.

At the end of the search, one student was found to be in possession of a vape device and vape juice containing a nicotine substance. We remain vigilant in working to keep illegal drugs out of our building.
