Dear Westside Family,
Happy Friday! The sun is out and it feels like Spring, what a great way to start the Spring Break holiday! This week has been another fabulous week at Westside, we had 3rd-5th graders trying out for the Find Your Voice Talent Show, our students presented at Thursday Night's School Board Meeting (Glimpse Here), KG set their Leprechaun Traps, 2nd Grade collected pet supplies for Texas Humane Heroes, and 3rd grade hosted their annual Living History Museum today! It was eventful but full of learning experiences aligned to our Westside vision to "Lead, Grow, Inspire," each day! Our kids, staff, and community continue to shine in all we do at Westside!
I wish you a beautiful Spring Break with your families!
Enjoy the weekend,
Amanda Reyes Lillard

Adjustments for Inclement Weather and Walker/Biker End of Day Dismissal
As we lived inclement weather at dismissal the 2nd day of school, we have found some tweaks to our system that will benefit our walker/biker families. When there is lightening and thunder in the area (yes that means rain may not be present), we are not allowed to release kids out into that weather without a parent/guardian. Car rider is easy because we place the student into the car. However we do have a large walker/biker group and we recognize that some of our families prefer to still pick up walker/biker during these times. Therefore we will respect your family decision during these events. Here is what we will do to create more options for our families:
KG/1st Supervised Walkers and Big Kid Walkers who come pick up KG/1st sibling: They will be able to continue to be a walker but they are REQUIRED to have a parent/guardian there to allow us to release them to you. Once we release them to you, it is your parent decision to walk out in the weather. If you do not like this option, you would submit a transportation change for your children when we notify you of Inclement Weather Dismissal Plans.
2nd-5th Walkers (Big Kids): They will be able to continue to be a walker but they are REQUIRED to have a parent/guardian there to allow us to release them to you. Once we release them to you, it is your parent decision to walk out in the weather. This dismissal will occur by the exit doors closest to the garden or as we call it 2nd Grade Neighborhood Exit. If you do not like this option, you would submit a transportation change for your children when we notify you of Inclement Weather Dismissal Plans via REMIND.
