All of the buildings in the Fort Wayne Community Schools district were built between 1902 and 1976, which means some of them don’t have air conditioning. Temperatures are in the 80s this week, and the heat can make it hard for students to concentrate.

Operation Lifesaver

Students at several Fort Wayne Community Schools this week learned about how to stay safe around trains and railroad crossings. 

“Tracks are for trains, not for kids.”

By the end of the presentation by the organization Operation Lifesaver, students at Indian Village Elementary were all chanting the reminder that may help them stay safe to and from school, and over the summer.

2nd graders Julian Conwell, Jodoea Yarbough, and Haley Higgins offer some more lessons learned.
