Message from the Principal
In an effort to keep close contacts and school exclusions to a minimum, Westbrook will be moving to a lunch plan which allows students to sit 6 feet apart at lunch. We will implement this change beginning on November 8th.
As you might already know, students that are determined to be a close contact at lunch(less than six feet) are NOT eligible for our "test to stay" program through our SHIELD testing. In order to keep more students in school as much as possible we will now have all students eating six feet apart.
There will be some shifts in the times that students eat lunch and some students will be eating in our front gym using raised trays. We have also hired additional lunch supervisors to help with this shift in lunch delivery. In order to accommodate multiple locations for supervision we have modified our lunch menu so that it is a "grab and go" bag lunch option. HERE is the updated lunch menu.
This change allows for the exciting opportunity to minimize student absences and increase safety mitigations.
A huge thank you to all of the families that participated in our Character Counts food drive. We exceeded our goal at Westbrook and Glen Grove so students enjoyed a pajama day on Tuesday of this week and music was played in the lunchroom! Thanks again!
Another huge thank you to our PTA for providing our first "virtual field trip" this week. Students were treated to an engaging performance around science! Students loved the humor and excitement!
Next week we will have a spirit day on Thursday, November 11 to honor Veteran's day. Students are encouraged to wear red/white/blue/USA gear.
Have a wonderful weekend,
