To help monitor our COVID  cases throughout next week, we are asking parents and caregivers to continue to notify your child’s school if your son or daughter tests positive for COVID. Front office school staff will be accessible next week for your call. 

To support families with this transition next week, the Technology Help Desk will be open at Moorhead Community Resource Center on Monday, January 17th, and throughout the week from 11 a.m.  - 1 p.m., where parents can request a WiFi hotspot or receive device support. Families can also submit a request online through our parent support process, IncidentIQ, which is located on our website by clicking on Parent Remote Support under the Parents tab. 

2 days of food distribution for all Warren students will be held on Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the following locations: Creston, Raymond Park, Stonybrook, Renaissance, and Warren Central High School. For these two days of distribution, accommodations have been made so that families can participate at any of these locations. Tuesday will consist of 4 meals and Thursday will provide 3 meals. 

Additional details and information on future schedules will be shared as soon as possible. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we prioritize the safety of our students and staff.
