Class Placement

Wheatfield Elementary has adopted a policy that we do not accept requests for children to be placed in a specific teacher's classroom. It is impossible to find an equitable method to permit requests for a certain teacher. We utilize computer technology as well as other criteria to create class lists. If you feel that your child has special requirements or would not work well with one certain teacher, please write a note and send it to the office, or you may contact the school office to make an appointment to discuss your child's needs. Thank you.

eLearning Days

As Kankakee Valley School Corporation continues to make technology an active part of teaching and learning in our district, we are continuing to have eLearning Days. eLearning Days allow for school districts to offer instruction digitally so that schools are able to make up lost days due to inclement weather. As you know, the possibility of bad weather is always real for all of us in NW Indiana.

Using Pin Code When Calling Into School

Kankakee Valley School Corp has a new security measure to protect the safety of our students.  When parents or guardians call the school, they must provide the pin code they created at registration when asking for certain confidential information (e.g. grades, health issues, discipline, attendance, address, contact info., family/sibling info., etc.). This also includes information that pertains to student location (bus number/route), financial information (balances), or early dismissal arrangements.  We understand that this will take time to get used to but we are only looking out for your child’s safety.   This is to ensure we are adhering to FERPA and HIPAA requirements.  If a parent forgets the Pin code, he/she can log in to Family Access and re-set it. Otherwise, the parent will need to come to the school office and provide proper identification.
