SupportED - COVID-19 Information



At Fort Wayne Community Schools student and staff safety and well-being is our top priority. If you have a question, concern or comment about any health or safety issue, please let us know.

Call our COVID-19 Hotline at 467-1907 or message us at Let’s Talk!


Masks are currently required in all FWCS buildings. Please refer to the COVID-19 2021-22 Plan below for full details on our procedures and protocols. 

Be kind! As COVID-19 continues to spread in communities in the U.S., worry, anxiety and fear can lead to stigma toward certain groups. Stigma and discrimination can create fear and anger that is misdirected at our neighbors instead of at the disease itself.



Return to Play Plan

Soon your students school or coach will be reaching out to discuss our Return to Play plan. We recognize you likely have many questions and our hope is that the documents below will help to answer them.  

The Fort Wayne Community Schools Return to Play Plan is based on and co-exists with Indiana Department of Education (IDOE), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Allen County Department of Health, Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) and Indiana State School Music Association (ISSMA) guidance, in addition to best practices from entities specific to individual sports and fine arts programs. All guidance and this plan are subject to change as new information emerges.

Please refer to your school or coach for specific information on your sport or co-curricular. If you have questions or concerns please call the FWCS COVID-19 Hotline at 467-1907.

COVID-19 Prevention

What can parents do to protect their family?

  • Parents should take the same precautions they would for any common cold or flu.
  • Family members need to wash their hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. (Alcohol-based hand sanitizers are also effective).
  • Hands should be washed before eating, after using the restroom and when you come inside from outdoor activities.
  • Teach children to keep their hands away from their mouth, eyes and nose.
  • Cough and/or sneeze into your elbows or a tissues, not your hands.
  • Distance yourself from anyone coughing or sneezing.
  • Encourage healthy habits, including eating a healthy diet, exercising and getting enough sleep.
  • Do not send students to school when they are sick.
Keep Your Family Healthy By Practicing Good Hygiene!
