Big picture

A Successful First Week!

The first few days are in the books and I have to say, it feels great to have all the students back in the building, seeing their smiling faces. There is a different energy throughout the school and we are thankful for this.

Mr. Fossitt met with each grade level to welcome them and shared tips for a successful school year, a few important school procedures, and other general information typical for the first few days of school.

Students will be bringing home some documents that need parent/guardian signatures. Please look for those if you have not already signed them. I encourage you to review our student handbook to familiarize yourself with school rules and procedures, which can be found on the school website https://nice.k12.mi.us/westwood-high/student-handbook-pdf/

There is no school on Monday, September 6th in observance of Labor Day. We will resume classes on Tuesday, September 7th.
