Dear Westside Family,

It has been a steamy week at Westside, but beautiful weather for all to enjoy! Thank you to our amazing PTA for hosting this week's PTA General Meeting highlighting "What is on the November ballot?" from Dr. Gearing. It is so important for our community and neighbors to be informed on how our schools can be impacted. If you were not able to attend, we encourage all our families and your neighbors to attend a second opportunity to be informed by attending this presentation next Wednesday at Cedar Park High School PAC. Our CPHS feeder pattern principals believe it is so important for our families to be informed, so we have joined forces to host this event for our feeder pattern communities! It begins at 6:30 p.m.

We have also kicked off our annual Write A Check Fundraiser! Westside follows a two fundraiser model for the school year! We have learned that our community prefers two big fundraisers rather than asking our families to fundraise all year long! The result is we are able to provide more for our kids and not ask our community for too much throughout the year! We are able to host family events for all families to enjoy, sponsor all field trips and Inspire Trips for every student in the building without asking our families for additional support, and so much more! We hope you can consider making a donation to our campus for the 2022-2023 school year!

Our Write A Check Goal is $25,000, see flyer for what this fundraiser will support if we reach this goal! Anyone can contribute and don't forget to explore corporate matching! Many of the companies in our area match your donation for public schools (i.e. Apple, Dell, Google and so much more). Our second fundraiser is Apex Fun Run in February!

Two ways to donate: Create Your Own Child's Individual Donation Page (recommended) or Donate to the General School Page (Check to see if your company supports public schools and will Corporate Match your donation here, you may surprise yourself)

Enjoy your weekend!

Always the best,

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.
