No Touch/No Contact iPad Replacement

Hello Decatur Township Family:

As we continue to move forward with E-Learning days, the Decatur Township Technology Department continues to work around the clock, to ensure that our students, as well as their families, get the technical support that they need now more than ever during this tough time. We understand we can only do so much to support our iPads remotely, and have situations where broken/disabled iPads need to be physically replaced. We also understand that iPads still need to be distributed for our students who are new to the district, and have not received one yet.

In accordance with CDC and State Guidelines, we have devised a plan for families to come get a new iPad for their child. Starting next week, we will be at Door 4 of the Technology Center, which is located between the Middle School, and DTSE off of South High School Road, on Mondays and Wednesdays only, from 9:30 am until 12 pm. You will need to fill out a form sheet provided online, to reserve a time slot to come in between those hours listed above. This is so we know who is coming and when to get an iPad ready to make the exchange as quick and convenient as possible. We will have the first set of doors propped open with a table in the doorway, that will have the new iPad laying out with a sticky note with your child’s name on it to take. You will see us on the other side of the glass with gloves on, but the 2nd set of doors in the doorway will be closed to maintain our distance. Once you take the iPad, we will wipe down the table for the next family to come in to get theirs as well. If you have a broken iPad you are replacing it with, you can just leave the broken one on the table, and take the new one. We will grab the broken one when you leave. Please note before you schedule a time, that we will only be distributing/replacing iPads under these circumstances. 

  • The one you have is physically broken and unusable, such as a shattered screen, defective touch screen, won’t turn on/charge, etc. 
  • Your iPad is disabled due to a locked passcode and it says connect to iTunes
  • You are new to the district and have not received an iPad yet for E-Learning. You will be getting a charger with your iPad as well. 

Please understand that if you are getting a brand new iPad, anything not backed up on your current iPad will be erased. Anything in Canvas will still be there when they log in on the new iPad, since that is cloud-based. BUT, notability, keynote, and photos will not be on the new iPad if they were not backed up to your school or personal google drive. This is why we always encourage to constantly back up files, as you never know when you might need a replacement device

We greatly appreciate everyone's understanding, patience, and cooperation during this time. We know it is highly stressful for everyone involved, and we are truly doing everything in our power, to make sure our kids get the best quality education, in the most convenient way possible.

If you have any questions about this process, or general iPad support, please call 317-856-2218

March 27, 2020 Update

Dear Decatur Township Families,

This is Dr. Prusiecki, Superintendent of Schools for Decatur Township.  As we enter the month of April, I wanted to share a few reminders and updates:

Our Department of Child Nutrition will be at all Schools (except at DTSE & DMS) to distribute food.  You can go to any site to pick up food. Per the guidelines of the federal government regarding food disbursement, children need to be present in order to receive food.   Food distribution is available for all school-aged children, eighteen (18) & under.

In addition to the food supplied by the federal government, we have partnered and will be supported by SECOND HELPINGS to provide additional meals for our adult community.

Please refer to the updated flyer as our locations have changed to only our school sites.  Also, for efficiency, we have only the 11 am-12 pm times. There are no longer any evening distribution sites. 

eLearning will begin back up on Wednesday, April 1st.  Please refer to the district and school websites for the eLearning calendar.  As eLearning starts back up April 1st, please reach out to our teachers or building administrators with any questions.  On our district & building websites, please refer to the “Learning Center” link on our district’s main page for help and support.   

For Kindergarten, Principal Mrs. Bryant has shared the following information:  Beginning April 1st, we will be providing new packets for our Kindergarten students to complete. We will collect the first packet at this time as well. All pick-ups will be on the circle drive at Liberty.  Parents can drive through and get a packet without leaving their cars. 

Wednesday, April 1st: 1:00pm-4:00pm and 6:00pm-7:30pm.  

Thursday, April 2nd: 8:00am-11:00am and 6:00pm-7:30pm.

Friday, April 3rd: 8:00am-3:00pm.

 All April events have been canceled or postponed.  We will make a determination for May events as soon as possible.

Our school buildings will be closed to the public until April 10th.  Any change to this starting April 13th will be shared accordingly.

Updates will continue to come through email as well as on our district/school websites.  

        As we continue through the spring season, our focus must be on taking care of our health, using the measures as prescribed by the CDC.  Washing our hands and social distancing being a major part of contributing to combat this crisis. We will continue to monitor the situation and follow our State and County Boards of Health with their recommendations along with our Mayor and Governor.   Again, I would like to thank you for all you do and your willingness to work together during this challenging time.

          As always, Together we are Decatur Proud!

           Your Superintendent,

            Dr. Prusiecki

Meals Update - Information and Schedule

March 23, 2020

Next distribution of food will be Monday, March 30th

Dear Decatur Township Families,

This is Dr. Prusiecki, Superintendent of Decatur Township Schools, I wanted to reach out and share a few important items with you.

Due to the high demand this morning for food distribution, we are not equipped for evening distribution at our designated locations, Decatur Central High School or at Blue/Gold Elementaries.  

Our next distribution of food will be Monday, March 30th as already scheduled.  Our locations are the same as scheduled on our district and school websites.

We will continue to have eLearning after spring break, starting April 1st.  Please refer to the district and school websites for the eLearning calendar.  

Separate communication regarding Kindergarten will be sent out by Principal Mrs. Bryant with information pertaining to packet pickup times.  

Our school buildings will be closed to the public and for most of our employees except for our police and administration until April 10th.

I will continue to push out information moving forward over the next several days and weeks as our situation may change. 

I encourage all of our community to stay home and maintain social distancing as much as possible.  As our Governor has limited access in our community, I want to reassure you that we will continue to support our school community through our eLearning process while pushing out prepared food as much as we can.  Thank you for your patience as we work together to manage through this difficult time. Stronger together, we will persevere and overcome this obstacle.  

As always, Together we are Decatur Proud!

Your Superintendent,
Dr. Prusiecki

April eLearning Plan

Decatur Township Families,

After the completion of spring break, March 30th-May 1st has been declared by the governor as physically “closed days” of school.  Therefore, we will continue our practice of eLearning with a mixture of waiver days. Waiver days are days granted by the Governor (State of Indiana) as a day of no instruction.  Please refer to the district and school websites for the calendar schedule for eLearning and Waiver Days.  

Our school buildings’ offices will be open for phone calls on all eLearning Days, beginning April 1st.  If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact your child’s school on those respective days.  eLearning will take place on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (except for March 30th). Our buildings will be closed on every Tuesday and Thursday.  

Food distribution for a five day lunch & Breakfast packet at any of the times below for every week will take place on Mondays:

3/30, 4/6, 4/13, 4/20, 4/27

  • All schools except DTSE & Decatur Middle School, from 11am-12pm
  • DCHS & Blue/Gold from 4pm-5pm
  • Valleybrook Clubhouse - 10:50am-11:20am
  • Windsong Clubhouse - 11:30am-12:00pm
  • Lynhurst Park Clubhouse - 12:10pm-12:40pm
  • Troy Manor Clubhouse - 12:50pm-1:20pm

You can go to any site for food pick up regardless where your children go to school!

As we are in these unprecedented times, it is imperative that our school community remains focused on supporting our children as we partner together to ensure learning.  Thank you for your support and willingness to strive to be Decatur Proud!

Sincerely,

Dr. Prusiecki
Superintendent
