Welcome to the 2022-2023 School Year!

Dear West Wing Families,

We are so excited to welcome back all of our Mustangs! We cannot wait to see all of our students and parents at our Meet the Teacher Night on Monday, August 1!

Our meet the teacher open house has two start times:


  • Kindergarten parents only: presentation in the Multipurpose Room


  • Kindergarten only students and parents head over to their classrooms


  • 1st-8th Grade classrooms are open!

We are excited to welcome our students back! We are going to have an amazing year of learning at West Wing!

Classroom Supply Drop Off

Younger students are encouraged to drop off their supplies during our Meet the Teacher Open House on Monday.

Welcome New Students!

We want to send a special welcome out to all of our new students joining us this year! We cannot wait to meet you and get to know you. You are going to love being a Mustang and learning at West Wing School!

From the Desk of our DVUSD Director of School Operations and Athletics (Scott Warner):

DVUSD Parents & Guardians,

As we welcome students back to school, we want to share with you our efforts to keep our campuses safe for our students, staff, and visitors. All of our campuses operate under individualized Emergency Response Plans (ERP). The ERPs give guidance to our campus administrators for emergency scenarios. All of our campus administrators received enhanced training on the ERPs this summer which included tabletop scenarios. The ERPs also lay out the frequency of our evacuation (fire drill), lockdown, and lockout drills. Drills may occur at any time during the school day, including instructional and non-instructional times such as lunch, recess, or before school and after school drop-off. Increased communication regarding drills will occur. Our District Office will also initiate unannounced drills during the school year at various school sites.

Furthermore, a number of DVUSD staff have completed the ALICE “train the trainer” course and will bring this nationally-recognized “sudden violent confrontation” training to our school sites throughout the year. Other efforts include continuing to “harden” our physical sites, monitoring student communication on District servers, placing wellness counselors or social workers on many of our campuses, and ensuring that sworn police officers are assigned full-time to our high schools and middle schools.

School safety is a shared responsibility between our schools and the community.

Please emphasize to your student that if they hear or see anything (online or in person) that makes them feel even the slightest bit uncomfortable in regards to school safety, they should report it immediately. We are hopeful that, together, we can make this our best year ever.

Kind Regards,

Scott Warner

Device Protection Plan

We want to encourage all West Wing parents to purchase the device protection plan. The cost of the plan is very affordable at only $25 per device. The plan must be purchased within three weeks of receipt of the device. This will help cover any costs incurred if accidental or intentional damage happens to your child's district issued iPad or Chromebook. Additional information will be sent home to parents the day students check out their devices regarding technology expectations.

Construction Update

You may have noticed that they are beginning to build more houses along the east side of 83rd Ave. Construction crews will be installing pipes and underground utilities from Eastwing to West Maya Way. Construction will begin 8/2 and is scheduled to be completed by 9/2. This will impact drop off and pick up at our school.
