Monday March 8 Class Schedule Changes

Starting Monday, March 8, the Instructional Schedule for D44 students will change. For students in Grades 1 and 2, who are currently attending the 2 day hybrid schedule, we will welcome those students back to school for 4 days starting March 8.

In addition, there will be some changes to the Wednesday schedule which will allow for more teacher contact time. And finally, we will be extending our day to 2:30pm. Please refer to district communication found here for more specific information. All changes will begin on March 8. There are NO changes to the Kindergarten schedule.

Yearbook Pictures March 6 and March 13 Only

We are excited to safely welcome our students to Glenn Westlake Middle School to have their school/yearbook pictures taken for the 2020-2021 school year. HR Imaging will be photographing our students this year. We are confident in our safety procedures, as well as those of HR Imaging, to allow our students to be safely photographed.
