The World of Westwood Wolves
Choose Your Own Adventure!
From the principal's office...
Can you believe another school year is here? Our teachers worked so hard last week working and learning together. Mrs. Lassiter showed off her cartwheel skills, and kindergarten teachers performed a rap they wrote to show their learning from the book our staff read this summer, Yes, We Can!. Westwood teachers are awesome!
Our theme this year is "choose your own adventure". We want all staff and students to go on many adventures this year with academics, social emotional learning, and collaboration.
We can't wait to serve our learners and your families. If you ever need anything, please email me at email@example.com or Mrs. Tompkins at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call the office and leave a message for us. We are here for you!
Here's to a great adventure for 2021-22! Keep reading for some important information...

Speaking of car line...update on morning arrival
Guess what? We are going to start opening the doors at 7:20 this year! I know many parents are trying to get to work, so we hope this helps. Our district is helping us with an extra duty person in the mornings, so we are able to do this. Thanks, Springdale schools! Since we are opening earlier, this should stop kids from being dropped off before doors are open. We cannot have students on the front porch unsupervised; this caused several issues last year. If you have a special situation, you'll need to call or email Mrs. Crumby.
Dismissal will happen at the same times as last year. Walkers will dismiss a few minutes before 3:00; if you want to meet your walker, you'll need to wait on the corner on McRay at the exit to the car rider line. Just like last year, we are keeping the area right around the school clear of visitors. We have staff members who will be walking children out all the way to McRay.
3rd-5th graders will be picked up in the side car rider line close to the gym (west side), and K-2nd will be picked up in front. If you have both a younger and older student, you can pick up all siblings in the front. All parents should stay in cars; we will not dismiss to parents walking up to the front. Car riders will be picked up in cars, and walkers should be walking home.
If you did not attend open house and get your car tag, you can stop by the office Monday morning to pick yours up. You will need this year's car tag for dismissal. If your child is a walker, you will still want the new tag in case you pick up on a rainy day or something changes. There is a QR code on the back you can use if you need to check your child in or out.
Visitors...COVID strikes again
We are again using our contactless check in/out system; you will need your phone and either use your camera or a QR scanning app. If you do not have your phone, we will bring an iPad out to you to use.
Hopefully, things will improve at some point during the year!
