Join us as we participate in this event once again! Last year, we had over 2,500 walkers! Many of our students, staff, parents and community members commented on how great this event was, how much fun they had, and how we should do it again. So, we are! Our goal is to encourage and to provide opportunities for students to be physically active while also raising awareness of the significance for Safe Routes to School.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 7th, 8:30 am WHERE: West Noble School Corporation MORE INFORMATION: Our West Noble students and staff will complete a designated route in honor of National Walk to School Day. Our WNHS, WNMS, and WNE will complete the same course as last year. Our WNP will have a different route due to construction near Pettit Park.

WNSC APPROVED FOR 3 eLEARNING FLEX DAYS
PDF - English and Spanish - Letter from Dr. VanDuyne explaining WNSC Flex Days
In order to comply with state law, we must have the completed required immunization information on file for every child in attendance at West Noble Schools on the first day they attend school. If the student still needs some vaccinations, the law states that the student has 20 school days to make an appointment and let the school nurse know when the appointment is. The student may attend school as long as they have an appointment. If they fail to go to the appointment, they will then be excluded from school. If they fail to make an appointment for needed vaccinations, they will be excluded from school after 20 school days.
If a student's parents prefer to sign a waiver to vaccinations as an alternative, the school nurses have this form.
Please contact the school nurse in your student's building if you have questions.
WNMS has a School Improvement Committee that meets several times a year in order to continue to improve our school. This year, the committee is helping the school prepare for accreditation. We need your input! Please click the link below and take a few minutes to complete the Parent Survey. We appreciate hearing from you!
INDIANA PARENT INFORMATION AND RESOURCE CENTER (PIRC)
West Noble Middle School wants parents to know about a resource for parents provided by the Indiana Department of Education. It is Indiana's Parent Information and Resource Center (PIRC). We know schools improve when they partner with parents. You can access it easily at www.fscp.org. This site gives parents helpful hints on helping your child.
