WNHS Winter Sports and Spring Senior Recognition

Charger iconUnfortunately, since we were unable to have the Winter Awards Program to recognize our Winter athletes, we did not want their efforts and commitments to go unnoticed. The coaches for the winter sports made videos to honor their MVP and Sportsmanship winners.

COVID-19 has not just put an unjust closing to the Winter sports season it also did not allow our spring sports to start. As we feel bad for all the spring athletes, our heart really goes out to our seniors. Our coaches decided since the seniors will not be able to compete, they made videos talking about each of their seniors to give them the recognition they deserve.

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.

Technology - April 7

April 7, 2020 - How to Handle Chromebook Repairs

In this time of online continuous learning, your West Noble Technology Office would like to address chromebook repairs for all students, grades 2-12. Students, parents/guardians, teachers, or administrators can use this West Noble Chromebook Repair form to report chromebook problems. Because many issues can be resolved remotely, a technician will contact the student or parent/guardian directly with help. If a chromebook or charger is broken, we will schedule a device swap.

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.
