Good Afternoon Warren Students, Families, and Staff,
We have a few important announcements for the week of May 25th.
This time of the year is always mixed with emotions of excitement for our seniors moving on to their next chapter in life and sadness because the year is over. With the recent tragedy in Texas and the remembrance of our students and loved ones that have been lost this year, this is a difficult and heavy time for us. These are reminders that life is fragile and that we need to continue to look out for each other. I want to remind our students, families, and staff that we have resources available if you find yourself needing them.
I want to send a reminder to our current 7th and 8th-grade students and families that you have until June 30th to apply for the 21st Century Scholars Program. Eligible students can receive a scholarship for up to four years of up to 100% tuition at any public Indiana college or university. Click the link here for the application and to find out more information, including income eligibility guidelines and graduation requirements. Don't miss out on this opportunity for FREE MONEY for COLLEGE!

MSD Warren Township, in partnership with the Indiana Immunization Coalition, will be providing a clinic to accommodate immunizations required for school-age children and the COVID vaccine for individuals 5 years and older on Monday, July 18, at Moorhead Community Resource Center from 3 - 6 p.m. Families are encouraged to pre-register for this event.

Linked here and below are the required immunizations for school-age children for the 22-23 school year.
Related to COVID, every home in the U.S. is now eligible to order 8 free at-home COVID-19 tests. The tests are completely free and should arrive within 1-2 weeks. Tests can be ordered by visiting COVIDtests.gov or by calling 1-800-232-0233.
Please take a few minutes to read our District May Newsletter to see the great things happening in Warren. Additionally, I would like to invite you to read the new Indy Far East Magazine that highlights Eastside people, places, and programs.
Just a reminder that tomorrow is our last day of school, and it is an early dismissal for all students. Each level will dismiss 1 hour early. Our first day of the 22-23 school year is Thursday, July 28.
On behalf of our School Board and our District administration, I want to express our appreciation for everyone’s patience, inCREdible effort, input and feedback, and most importantly, your resiliency this school year. Thank you for your investment in our students, staff, and schools.
Have a wonderful summer, and looking forward to the 22-23 school year.
Dr. Tim Hanson, Superintendent of Schools for MSD Warren Township
