School City of Mishawaka updates families on rest of school year

School City of Mishawaka has notified parents and students of the steps the district is taking to make the school year end as smoothly as possible.

The schedule has students remote learning and finishing the school year on May 20.

All district activities are cancelled for the rest of the school year, including field trips, athletic events/practices, co-curricular events/practices.

Specific events, such as high school graduation, prom, the 8th grade trip to Washington D.C., and the spring musical will be decided at a later date.

Additional information provided by the district:


We understand that students were not able to retrieve their personal belongings from their classrooms, lockers, nurses offices, etc., before our closure on March 13, 2020. Additional opportunities will be provided in accordance with guidance from the Governor’s Office and other agencies.


We recognize that this is a challenging and demanding time for families. Many are trying to juggle remote learning with multiple children while also working from home. So it is important, now more than ever, for parents/guardians to please reach out to your child(ren)’s teacher and principal if you need help and support.

  • All students in K - 8 who make a good-faith attempt to complete remote learning and meet grade-level standards will advance to the next grade level as expected.
  • All students in grades 7 - 8 who are enrolled in high school credit bearing classes must complete remote learning in order to earn the high school credit.
  • Academic expectations for students in grades 9-12 are significantly more complex and require additional consideration. As such, guidance for Mishawaka High School students will be provided as soon as possible, but by no later than Tuesday, April 7, 2020.
