A Message From Mr. Hottovy's Office....
October is an exciting time at Westbrook because we get the opportunity to partner with families through parent/teacher conferences. Conferences are a wonderful time to engage with school and to find out how your child is progressing in a number of academic areas, including specials. Parent/teacher conferences also provide you an opportunity to have input in your child’s education and connect with your child’s teachers.
This year, our fall conferences are on the evening of October 13 and during the day on October 14th. There is no school for students on October 14th and 15. If you have a conflict with those times, please work with your child’s teacher to find a suitable time. We want to do everything that we can to see you for conferences. This year, you will have the opportunity to come to conferences in person (masks required) or via webex (video conference). If you would like to use Webex but do not have a device, we can send your student’s ipad home for conferences if you have signed and paid the ipad insurance. If you need more information about that, please give us a call in the office.
Thank you for your partnership during this important time.

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.
