School Starts at 8:30 AM

Our instructional school day begins at 8:30 a.m. Doors will be opened at 8:20 a.m. This allows students plenty of time to walk to classrooms, hang up backpacks, check in with teachers and peers, and be ready for those first important words of the day at 8:30 a.m. Give your students every advantage of a successful day by having them here at 8:20 a.m.!



In addition to the classroom teacher, please also contact the main office at (402) 390-6480 or drelicharz.cristina@westside66.net with any information related to your child's attendance.

Face Masks

Face masks are required in our building. Please double check that your child has a face mask before coming to school and is wearing it before exiting the vehicle.

Morning Arrival

We would like to remind families that drop off time for breakfast is 8:10 am. All other students will be able to enter the building at 8:20 am. As long as the temperature is not below a "feels like" temperature of 10 degrees, your student will be asked to wait outside. As colder weather approaches, it is important that your child is dressed appropriately for the cold.

Please remind your child to check for missing items in the lost and found bin. Items not claimed before winter break will be donated.
