Water Line Installation

Water service to the Wawasee High School campus will be shut off from December 20-24 for installation of a new water line. There will be no working, drinking, toilet, or shower facilities at the high school, Academy, CTE, or central office facilities. Practices will be scheduled through the athletic director. Any staff member working in the building during those days may use restrooms in the transportation/maintenance facility on Kern Road. It is anticipated that water service will resume, with appropriate water testing conducted, before Monday, December 27. Thank you for your cooperation.

Receiving Delay & Cancellation Emails/Texts

This is a reminder that Wawasee Community School Corporation is using for reporting school closings and delays. This is a service designed by the Northern Indiana Educational Services Center that "provides a state of the art way to notify local news media and community members" when we need to close, delay, or dismiss early. In addition to local news media being notified, anyone may go to, enter his or her zip code, choose a radius, and see all the delays or closings within that area.

Community members can also sign up to receive emails and/or text messages when WCSC closes, delays, or dismisses early. We have found that those emails and text messages are received within a very short time frame from when WCSC contacts the service. Click on Community Members and then Register Free to sign up.

Once you have created an account, you can click on Account Info and then Notification Methods from the navigation menu. Once this screen has been displayed, you will be allowed to enter up to three different email addresses to which you would like to receive notifications. Your SMS/text messaging email address, if you wish to receive a text message on your cell phone, is your cell phone number (without hyphens or spaces) and your cell phone provider's SMS/text messaging email address. The most common providers' addresses follow:

After you have selected your notification methods, you can click on Account Info and then Select Organizations from the navigation menu. Then click on School Districts. Once this screen has been displayed, you will be allowed to drag an organization from the left hand box to the right hand box. Any organization listed in this right hand box will be the only ones for which you will receive future notifications.

We will continue to post delays and cancellations on our website and here on The Wawascene.
