Ossian Elementary

Transportation - State Road 1 Closure

Indiana Department of Transportation will be working on State Road 1 from 850 North through downtown Ossian to Dyar Drive the week of August 26th, weather permitting. You can expect some delays, lane restrictions, and traffic directed by flaggers. You will be able to enter and exit Ossian Elementary in the usual fashion.

Indiana Department of Transportation has also released information regarding the closure of State Road 1 from Dyar Drive on the north side of Ossian north to I-469. The road will be CLOSED to through traffic starting on or after Tuesday, September 3rd. The project is expected to be completed by mid-November, weather permitting. 

NWCS has been given permission to continue running school buses in this area to pick-up and drop-off students living along this closure. Please be assured if you live in this closure, we will still provide transportation, but we can expect some delays while they are working on the road. 

Parents driving students to school and student drivers will need to use alternate routes to IN 1. 

Parents dropping off students at Ossian Elementary will still be able to do so using the entrance off of State Road 1. During the closure, you can use 1000 North (Davis Road) or 900 North to get back to State Road 1. 

ILEARN Assessment Information

Students in grades 3-5 participated in ILEARN assessments earlier this spring. Final results from ILEARN will be available from the state to the schools on August 15. Schools will have an opportunity to request a rescore for any open-ended items during the window of July 15-31, however, schools and parents will not have access to preliminary scale scores at this time. Submitting a rescore could result in an increase or decrease score. If you have questions, please contact School Testing Coordinator/Assistant Principal Kristen Wall (kristen.wall@nwcs.k12.in.us) or Principal Dee Dee Larkey (andrea.larkey@nwcs.k12.in.us) and they will respond with additional information prior to the end of the rescore request window. 


The AIM of the Northern Wells Community Schools is to equip students to maximize their present and future success.
