After discussions with our local health department and state officials, all Wabash #348 schools will discontinue temperature checks at school bus pick ups and when entering the school buildings. We must stress that it is of the utmost importance that you do not send your child to school when he or she is not feeling well. I want to thank everyone with their patience throughout this process. As with everything right now, situations can and will immediately change. Stay safe and Go Aces!
