Happy Retirement to Mrs. Ouradnik

Thank you for the all your hard work and many years of service.

A note from Mr. Paulus

I am so thankful for all the students and staff at Westside. I am happy with what was accomplished during my first year at Westside and looking forward to continue to become a better counselor so I can meet the needs of our students and staff. Have a wonderful Summer!

Nurse Note

Reminder: Please be prompt in picking up your sick or injured child from school! He/She must be picked up within 30 minutes or less of receiving a call indicating your child is sick or injured. Our goal is to provide the best care we can for your child and being home when they are sick is the best thing! Students need to remain out of school for 24 hours once a fever is less than 100 degrees without the use of medication. Also students must remain out of school for 24 hours once vomiting or diarrhea has stopped without the use of medication. Thank you for your assistance with following district policies and keeping out school healthy!

AmeriCorps Literacy Tutor

Westside Elementary is seeking a North Dakota Reading Corps literacy tutor for the 2017-18 school year!


As a tutor, you will implement research-based strategies to help children in grades 1-3 succeed in reading. As a tutor, you will receive a living allowance of about $675 monthly for reduced half-time (20 hours/week) and an education award of $2,199 (RHT) to be used for college tuition and current student loans. (Tutors who are 55 or older may choose to transfer their education award to a child, grandchild or foster child.) Tutoring takes place during the school day when school is in session, making it a great fit for parents with school-age children. Training and support are provided throughout the year.

Give a year of service to grow our communities. Apply today to become a tutor! Go to www.ndseec.com/readingcorps. The position begins at the start of the school year. Send questions to Jolene Garty at gartyj@ndseec.com or call (701) 446-3173.

Visitation Procedures

We welcome you to our school; however, all parents, volunteers, and visitors must sign in at the Westside Main Office through our LobbyGuard security system (please have your driver’s license with you) and have the classroom teacher’s permission BEFORE accessing any part of the school building. NO EXCEPTIONS! The safety of our students and staff is our first priority!

Lost and Found

Often articles do not show up the first day they are lost. If you do not find the missing article, tell your child to check back a day or two later.


It is important to put your child's name in all sweatshirts, jackets, lunch bags, etc. This will enable us to return the clothing to your child.


If lost and found articles are not claimed, they will be given to a charitable organization. Feel free to contact the office if you know you're child is missing something and we can look for you.

Keeping Children Healthy

The start of cold and flu season has arrived. Our school district policy states that children must be symptom free for 24 hours before returning to school. This includes no vomiting, diarrhea or fevers over 100 degrees. Also, reinforcing good hand washing skills with your child helps lessen the spread of germs. We appreciate your help to keep all of our students healthy.

Calling for absence


If your child will be absent from school, please call the office at 356-2110

before school starts at 8:10. Attendance is taken daily and it is important

that all students are accounted for at the start of the school day.

Bus Tags

At Westside our top priority is keeping students safe. Our new Bus tags system will help us keep your student/s safe. The tags need to be worn by your child for the whole school year. Please do NOT remove the tag from your child’s backpack. If your child needs a new tag, please call the office. Each child that rides the bus will have a tag attached

to their backpack that they will scan upon getting on and off the bus. This

will help us in tracking our students and keeping them safe. Please contact the office if you have any questions.

FEDERAL EDUCATION LAW

Through federal education law, parents have the right to request information on the professional qualifications of the teachers and paraprofessionals at our school. If you are interested in learning this information, please contact the school administration office at (701) 356-2110. Upon this request, you will receive a detailed explanation of the licensing, education, and experience of each of our teachers. You will also receive information regarding the names and qualifications of the paraprofessionals at our school(s).
