Warsaw Community High School will hold freshmen orientation from 4:30 to 8 p.m. Aug. 10 at WCHS.

Parents and guardians are asked to enter through the Performing Art Center (PAC) doors. All incoming freshmen students are invited to attend. Due to recent COVID-19 protocol restrictions, there will be three repeated presentations of important incoming freshmen material, according to a news release from Warsaw Community Schools.

WCHS will operate with alphabetized freshmen groups, based on a student's last name, in the PAC at one of the following times: 5 p.m., A through J; 6 p.m., K through R; and 7 p.m., S through Z.

The remaining time will be allotted for students and a parent/guardian to tour WCHS and for students to walk their schedule. To assist with space limitations, WCHS is asking that only one parent/guardian enter the building with the student.

Some highlights of the orientation will include sharing important information regarding the school year, meeting and hearing from key school figures, and introducing Tim Devlin, the new principal for the Class of 2025.

Incoming freshmen will receive their iPad at this event as well as information to purchase insurance on that device. Insurance is a valuable asset to have in case of an accident, the news release states. iPad insurance for freshmen will be $25.

This is an evening designed to help students and families make a smooth transition to WCHS.
