Westbrook School

From the Principal...

Dear Westbrook Families,

One of our top priorities at Westbrook is helping students to feel safe and connected. This continues to be one of our top priorities during remote learning! This week, you should have received communication from your child’s teachers regarding how they plan on continuing to foster the school and classroom community. This may look like Zoom calls, digital portfolios on Seesaw or Class Dojo, recorded messages or videos, pictures/stories on Instagram, FlipGrid postings, and more! Please know that the Westbrook family is here to support your child and your family.

Read Alouds We love reading, and we hope you like listening to our stories! Please click here to access our ever-growing list of read-alouds for your students to enjoy!

Spirit Days Thanks to all who participated in our spirit days! It has been so wonderful to see the community come together to support each other. Please see the attached handout for our upcoming spirit days! Next week, we will be celebrating Let’s Read (on Tuesday) and Thankful Thursday! If you post pictures on social media, please tag our school, westbrook_d57, and use #d57spiritdays.

Assistance with Technology If you have any technology needs, please fill out the short form below and someone will be in contact with you shortly to help! As mentioned in Dr. Aumiller's email, please let us know if your family would benefit from having another device for remote learning. District 57 can loan you a Chromebook. You may request to borrow a chromebook using the same form below.

MPSD57 Technology Support for Remote Learning (for staff, students, and families)

  • Help Desk: At-Home Tech Assistance Form

  • Tech assistance tickets received outside of remote learning hours will be responded to during the next remote learning day.

Instagram and Twitter We encourage you to follow us on Instagram and Twitter. We love to post photos of our students growing their brains! Our username is: westbrook_d57.

We are so appreciative of your support and partnership during this time. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to any person on your child’s team if you have questions or need support.

We wish you and your family well,

Kristin Vonder Haar
