Loveland Fall Clean Up

Student Council sponsored a fall clean up for the school grounds. Thanks to all the students and parents who participated.

Snow Days

Nebraska winters can get pretty tough at times. When snow accumulates and the bitter wind blows, Westside Community Schools share with parents a concern of the safety for their children. Here are a few guidelines that should help us in working together to assure the safety of students, no matter how bad the weather.

  • If bad weather occurs you will receive a phone/text message from the District either the night before or that morning.
  • We will also ask the local radio and television stations to make an announcement.
  • You may also call the Information Line, 402-390-2299 for information about closings.

HyVee's Cash For Students Program

The CASH FOR STUDENTS PROGRAM is a fundraising program that gives the school $1 for every $200 spent at all Omaha and Council Bluffs Hy-Vee stores, gas stations, and pharmacies. Please collect all of your receipts and family member’s receipts dated September 1, 2019-December 31, 2019 and turn them in to the box by the office or to your teacher throughout this time period. Additionally, the Hy-Vee on 90th and Center also has a Loveland box located by customer service that you can drop your receipts! Thanks for all of your help with this amazing fundraising opportunity! This is an easy way for us to make money for the school to help with your child's field trips, classroom activities, etc. If you have any questions please contact Kelly Collins,

Note From the Nurse

Fall is upon us now and so is the cold, flu and allergy season! There are many children needing

medication during the day, so this is a good time to give a quick reminder to everyone about the school district medication policy. If you need us to give students medication at school, we must have the following items in place:

  • A physician’s order with the time and dose of medicine to be given.
  • A signed parent permission form permitting the school to administer medication.
  • All medications MUST be in original containers. (Do not send pills or even cough drops in baggies or other containers.)
  • Prescription medication must come in the pharmacy bottle. Pharmacies will supply you with an extra bottle for school upon request. Note: the Pharmacy label does not serve as doctor orders.

School Arrival

Our school day begins at 8:40 am. Students may enter the building at 8:30 am. We ask that students not arrive before 8:30, unless:

  • Participating in a school activity
  • Serving on Safety Patrol
  • Working with a teacher
  • Attending Club 66 Before & After Care program
  • Eating breakfast

Teachers are involved in team meetings, staff meetings and individual planning from 8:00-8:30 am. Thanks for your continued cooperation.
