WCS Schools to Host Welcome Back, Informational Events

Warsaw Community Schools will welcome students and staff back to the first day of school on Tuesday, Aug. 13. In preparation for the start of school, each WCS building will host a time for parents to visit and tour the buildings and learn more about their child’s school.

Registration is very important information for student classroom placement, transportation schedules and to ensure a smooth start to academic learning. Transportation letters are scheduled to be mailed by Monday, Aug. 5. Late registration submissions put proper and efficient transportation routes in jeopardy. If you have not yet registered your student, please visit https://warsawschools.powerschool.com/public.

In addition to these events, WCHS will hold freshmen orientation on Tuesday, Aug. 6, in the Performing Arts Center. Doors 47-50 will be open from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. In order to provide added flexibility for parents and students, there will be two different presentation time slots. Presentations will begin promptly at 5:15 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. Meetings will last 45 minutes.

Parents only need to attend one of these time slots as the same information will be covered each time. These presentations allow parents to hear important information regarding the school year and meet and hear from key school personnel, including the freshman grade-level principal Mrs. Nine. Students may also pick up their iPads at this time. All incoming freshmen students and their parents are invited and encouraged to attend.
