Most teachers will be located in the team common areas, library, and cafeteria. You will get a copy of your student's schedule and a map when you arrive so you know where teachers are located.

Water Bottles

Being hydrated is extremely important for our students so they can be successful academically. However, students have decided to start using their water bottles to squirt other students and make a mess on the floors in our building. We will be taking away water bottles from students who are using them for anything other than drinking.

WHS Football Game Reminders

Westside families -

We are encountering problems at our Varsity Football Games at Westside High School involving our students. Specifically, we have noticed an increasing number of elementary and/or middle school students unaccompanied and/or unsupervised during and after games. This last week, our staff and security noted a group of younger students together in our parking lot more than 30 minutes after the stands had emptied; needless to say, it was concerning to see a group of 10-13 year olds, alone, at 10pm on a Friday night.

This is creating safety concerns, as well as crowd control and behavioral issues for our security, staff members, and other students and families. While we encourage our younger students to attend games, whether football, softball, basketball, etc., we remind you they must be accompanied and supervised by an adult. In addition, we remind all students they are expected to sit/stay in the stands to watch the game and not congregate near concession stands and restrooms.

Thank you for your support in helping Westside High to be a welcoming and safe place for all of our fans, student athletes and visitors.

Westside Community Schools

Lunchroom Expectations

We have been observing some behaviors in the lunchroom that are not meeting our school expectations of being safe, responsible, and respectful. Please reinforce the following expectations with your student.

  • Stay seated, ask permission to get up

  • Wait until the garbage cans come to you, don’t attempt to make “baskets”

  • All ipads, airpods, and phones need to be kept in backpacks

  • Please do not play with food or make messes with your food on your tray

Westside Middle School participates in TAGG. TAGG has a growing list of participating businesses who will donate a portion of what you spend there to our school. WMS uses these funds to help support our school PBIS store and extra supplies teachers need throughout the year.

This is a fast and easy way to help our building without fundraising. Watch this video to see how it works. https://youtu.be/WS2u4s1J63c

Below is a list of business that participate in TAGG. Remember to select Westside Middle School!!
