2020

 

Hello, this is Mr. Bruck the principal from West Elementary with a few important updates about the reopening of our school.

The first day of school is next Monday, August 24.

Please refer to skyward family access to find out your child’s teacher.

We have made some changes to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff on campus.

Mr. Cline outlined these changes and a communication to parents on July 24.

Updates at West- For dismissal we will have two parent pick up areas this year.  Kg thru 2nd grade will continue to dismiss as in the past but, 3rd thru 5th students will now be picked up at the bus ramp off Gibson Ave.  There are more details in the link below.  

We will have a virtual open house this Friday, August 21 at 5 PM available on our school website and the Facebook page.

Typically, at our open house we find out about transportation.

Please complete the transportation form on the link below so we can be prepared for your child’s dismissal on the first day of school.

If your children are traditional or virtual this year, we look forward to providing them with a wonderful educational experience.

To provide a safe environment, we have limited access to our campus at this time.

In the morning, students cannot be dropped off until 7:20.  This is 30 minutes later than last year and we realize that the morning process will be delayed.  Please be patient with our staff as we have this transition.

To allow for safe distancing in the cafeteria there will be meals served in the classrooms this year.

 At this time, no visitors (Non-district staff members) are allowed to be on campus and we are asking for no parent lunch visitors as well.

Due to this policy, parents will not be allowed to walk your child to class on the first day but, we will have staff available to help students find their classroom.

Stay informed with up to date information by visiting our school website or Facebook page.

We look forward to a great school year where we are building leaders!
