The Buzz at Westbrook School

September 10, 2021

From the Principal...

Dear Westbrook Families,

We have had a wonderful three-day week at Westbrook filled with learning. Students practiced the evacuation drill, bus evacuation drill, and shelter in place drill. I was so impressed with their excellent listening skills and ability to follow their teacher’s directions. We were able to perform these drills safely and in record time. I was very proud of our students and staff.

We also enjoyed popsicles in the park on Wednesday night with our early childhood students. I enjoyed watching the students run around the playground while parents and guardians were able to connect. I love that we can gather together outside while the weather is nice. A big thank you to our early childhood program for putting on such a fun event.

We have our first PTO meeting in person at Westbrook on Wednesday, September 15th. Please feel free to join us in the Westbrook LRC at 7:00 pm. We are excited to hear more about the Walk for Westbrook, the Read-A-Way program, the Book Fair, and more!


Have a great weekend, Westbrook!


For Your Children,

Danielle Crandall

Westbrook Principal

TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION FROM First Student

Throughout the year buses may be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances (e.g., vehicular congestion; train traffic, weather, mechanical issues, etc.). The district has been using Bus Bulletin for several years now and is confident that this online notification system is the best way to inform parents should the need arise. For more information about Bus Bulletin, see the flyer below and sign up at www.BusBulletin.com/parents.
