WN School Schedule - update April 03, 2020 

April 03, 2020 - Superintendent Mast 

Good afternoon West Noble. We have received new guidance from the Governor's Office and from the Indiana Department of Education. Face to face instruction in all Indiana Schools has been canceled for the 19-20 school year. However, the DOE is asking us to be sure to conduct at least 160 school days, which means that we at WN will be having 19 E-Learning Dates, starting the Monday after Spring Break. We have completed 141 school days thus far for the 19-20 school year.

E-Learning Days will be Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week. Assignments for the week will be given on Mondays and are due on Friday of that same week. Teacher office hours are 9-11 and 1-3 daily on Mon, Wed, Fri. The week of May 18-22 is the final week of school. There will be 4 E-Learning days that week (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri). The first day of E-Learning is April 13. Our final day is May 22.

Food service will not be handing out meals next week during spring break. That service will resume on the 15th of April. More information will be coming.

COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in the United States, and behavioral risk mitigation strategies are the best for slowing the spread of this disease. Due to an abundance of caution during this National Health Emergency involving the COVID-19 virus, the Jr. NECC is indefinitely postponing the 2020 Jr NECC Girls Basketball Tournament, as well as the 2020 Jr. NECC Wrestling Tournament. The decision on when, or if the tournament will resume, will be made by the administration of all conference schools. We will move forward and work in a consistent manner with current information, and we will continue to monitor and make adjustments as needed.
