Dear Westside Family,


Happy Friday Westside! I hope you have had a wonderful week! Rain is on the way but many exciting things are coming up for our community! Next Thursday and Friday is the 100th and 101st day of school! Our primary grades have a lot of fun with the number 100 and 101! Stay tuned for an update on the fun that is to be had next Friday!


I also want to make sure our community marks their calendar for the February 8th PTA Meeting with 4th Grade presenting "In the Pages of Books" show! Come on out and enjoy the show, then send kids to the cafe for some pizza and a movie while you engage in our PTA General Meeting! Your voice is valued and wanted by our school and PTA! Hope to see you there!


Have a beautiful weekend!

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.
