Warrick County Schools to close for three weeks

Coronavirus Watch

WARRICK CO., Ind (WEHT) Due to COVID-19, the Warrick County School Corporation says classes and all school-related events are cancelled from March 16 through April 3.

After long and careful deliberation, Warrick County School Corporation has decided to close schools and cancel all school-related events beginning Monday, March 16th, 2020 through Friday, April 3, 2020. Reminder, March 23-27 is our scheduled Spring Break. We realize this closure may create a challenging situation for our families; however, we need to use an abundance of caution when considering the health and welfare of our students, staff, and community. At this time, we do not have any diagnosed cases of COVID-19 in Warrick County.

Warrick County School Corporation will provide information and guidance regarding student instructional materials via the WCSC Autocall System, our WCSC website, and social media. In addition, WCSC Food Services will have “Grab and Go” lunches available between the hours of 11:30 A.M. and 12:30 P.M. for any WCSC school-age student at the following locations: Boonville High School, Chandler Elementary, Oakdale Elementary, Sharon Elementary, and Tennyson Elementary.

Warrick County School Corporation will continue to monitor and assess this fluid situation. We will make appropriate decisions based on the recommendations of the Indiana Department of Health, the Indiana Department of Education, and our government leaders. Clearly, this is new territory for all of us, and we appreciate your patience and understanding. We encourage you and your children to continue to practice healthy hygiene, utilize social distancing, and avoid non-essential gatherings.

Again, additional information will be communicated through WCSC Autocall, website, and social media as it becomes available.

Superintendent, Warrick County School Corporation
