Graduation Ceremony Postponed

Graduation Ceremony Postponed

Fellow Warriors and Warrior Families,

I am sorry to have to do this, but we have to postpone the graduation ceremony and graduation practice scheduled for today due to the heavy rain and storms that are taking place now and the ones that are expected from 3-8 pm tonight!  We will  reschedule Graduation for our rain date of July 2nd at 5pm.  Graduation practice will also be moved to 12 pm on July 2nd at the football field.  Looking ahead the forecast for next Thursday is Partly sunny and 86 degrees, but who knows the way 2020 has gone so far we might have an impromptu hurricane in Warren that day!  I appreciate your flexibility during these trying times!  Thank you and go Warriors!

Don’t forget to take the 2020 Census!

Please fulfill your civic duty by completing your census and increase the amount of federal funding our communities receive for community services such as public services, schools, hospitals, and fire departments. These figures also determine how many seats are allocated for Illinois in the House of Representatives. Furthermore, these figures help drive plans for new homes, businesses, and improvements to neighborhoods. Please take a few minutes today to complete your census, thank you.

FFA Plant Sale 🌸

Due to COVID-19 we have to do our plant sale a little differently. Below you will find a link to our online store that opens at Noon on Saturday May 2nd.

When you check out you will select a pickup date and time. Pick up dates & times are: Tuesday/Thursday 3-5pm or Saturday 8:30-10:30AM. There is no rush to pick up plants. Products are pulled each day as the orders come in, so your products are reserved. When you come to pick up please park in front of the greenhouse and stay in your car. We will load your vehicle for you and confirm payment.

Payment methods are check, e-check and credit card. Paying with a check has no service fee. An e-check has a $0.45 fee. The Credit Card option has the highest fee at 3.5% plus $0.45. That amount is calculated on the payment screen so you can decide what is the best option for you. The credit option is only being offered for shopper convenience. We are perfectly happy with payment by check!!

Below you will find the link to the site, but you will see a countdown until Saturday at noon!

Thank you for supporting Warren FFA!!

COVID-19 Update: April 17

Good Afternoon, Warriors:

It is with a heavy heart that I inform all of you that Governor Pritzker has announced the suspension of in-person instruction through the remainder of the school year. This extends our remote learning plan through the end of the academic school year. 

Frankly, this is a sad day. No one had planned this school year to finish in this manner. My heart is with all students and staff who were not given the opportunity to have proper goodbyes. I grieve for our high school seniors who had their final quarter of their career at Warren High School torn from their grasp.

With that being said, we will all continue to move forward together. We must be resilient and work together to conquer the hardships we are currently facing. Regardless of our various backgrounds, no one was fully prepared as our lives were flipped upside down.

Please review the letter that is being sent out electronically through SchoolMessenger’s email system (attached below), our school Facebook page, and our school website for more information. I encourage all students and families to maintain constant communication with their teachers. While this does help us track the continuing of education, more importantly we utilize this information to track the well-being and health of our students.

Warren Warriors, thank you for your support and cooperation. We need to remain unified through these unprecedented times. If there is anything we can do for you, please reach out to us. Together, we will battle through this adversity and emerge from this pandemic stronger than ever. Please hug your child and take care of yourselves. Please make sure they know that we miss them dearly.
 
Go Warriors!

We Miss You Warriors!

The teachers at Warren Schools wanted to let their students know how much they are missed and loved. Stay strong all students and teachers through this odd time.

Corona Virus Update – School Closure

At 3:30 pm today Governor J.B. Pritzker informed administration via a teleconference that schools are to be closed starting Tuesday, March 17th through March 30th.

Monday, March 16th will be a normal school day and will be used for teachers to get any needed papers, materials, supplies,  and instructions to students about the e-learning days we will be utilizing. On Tuesday teachers will come in and work on compiling any other materials or content needed to make e-learning happen.

Wednesday, March 18th will then become our first e-learning day and we will continue with e-learning through March 30th. As of now we will plan on students returning to regularly schedule school days on Tuesday, March 31st.

This is still a fluid situation and we will keep you informed as we gather more information.
