Dear Westside Elementary Family,

I want to take the time to remind everyone that there is no school on October 14th and 15th. That means this upcoming weekend is a 4 day weekend for our students. Please make sure you add this to your calendar, as the school will be closed for Leander ISD Continuous Improvement Conference at Vista Ridge High School these days and there will be no staff on campus to receive children.

While school is closed these two days, we will miss an important day for our campus, White Cane Awareness Day. White Cane Awareness Day is celebrated every year on October 15th to promote the abilities of people who are blind or visually impaired. At Westside we will celebrate our blind and visually impaired youth on Thursday, October 17th. We will recognize and celebrate the resilience of these students as they successfully access their education, personal interests, and inspire all those around them each day. Please join our campus on this day and wear White for White Cane Awareness Day at Westside!

Have a wonderful week!

Amanda Lillard

Principal
