Westview Staff Spotlight

Ms. Kennedy

1. What classes do you teach and/or programs and activities do you work with?

Westview Cafeteria Manager. I am responsible for 9 staff members and managing the daily operations of the kitchen, so that we can prep and serve over 1150 meals per day.


2. How long have you been at WHS?

I started at Westview ten plus years ago and have worked for the District since 1998.


3. What do you enjoy most about the Westview community?

The Students! I love to watch students mature and grow into young adulthood. I so enjoy hearing about what you hope to do in this world. Some of you may not know where life will take you and that's ok. I would encourage you to find what you love to do, then do it. Not everyone needs a college degree to succeed in this world.


4. If you could have a gigantic billboard anywhere with anything on it - metaphorically speaking, getting a message out to millions or billions - what would it say and why? It could be a few words or a paragraph. It could be someone else's quote or any quotes you think of often or live your life by. Why would you put it on a billboard today?

“Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives - choice, not chance, determines your destiny.”
Aristotle

Sam Staat

1. What classes do you teach and/or programs and activities do you work with?

I teach American Studies and Race & Ethnic Studies.


2. How long have you been at WHS?

This is my third year teaching at Westview. I was here for the 2018-19 school year and now this is my second year back after one year away.


3. What do you enjoy most about the Westview community?

I appreciate the collaboration, warmth, and friendliness of the staff here and am grateful to have friends at Westview who are supportive and don’t take themselves too seriously. In regards to students, it is my genuine honor to get to learn alongside them. Westview students bring such a diversity of experiences, perspectives, and ideas into the classroom and they are so important to the learning communities that are created here. I love helping students learn and I love learning from students!

COVID-19 Testing Q & A

Dear BSD Parents/Guardians,

The Beaverton School District will be offering weekly, take-home tests to screen for COVID-19. The tests are free to families.


Who is eligible for free COVID-19 testing?

We’ll be rolling out this program in stages for elementary and K-8 students next week. The rest of students in all middle, high and option schools are now eligible to participate beginning the week of November 8. Pre-K students are not currently eligible.

If students have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 90 days, they are NOT eligible for this program. Once 90 days have passed since their last positive COVID-19 test, they may enroll.

The program is open to both vaccinated and unvaccinated students.


Why should your student participate?

Tests that screen for COVID-19 are just one more tool to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure that our students can continue in-person learning. It’s also an effective way to prevent an infected child from unknowingly spreading COVID-19 to other family members.


How will the COVID-19 testing work?

Once a week, your school will send home a PCR COVID-19 test with your student. The following morning, you’ll collect your student’s saliva in a collection container. All instructions and supplies will be provided. Then you’ll send the sample back to school with your student. Samples will be picked and processed by OHSU. Within 24 hours, you’ll receive an email from OHSU with your student’s result.

If your student’s result is “unknown” or positive for COVID-19, you’ll get a phone call from an OHSU nurse who’ll advise you further.


Are test results shared with my school?

OHSU will not share test results with your school; your student’s information or COVID status would only be shared with public health officials.

However, if your student tests positive for COVID-19, it’s imperative that you call your school office and let the staff know immediately. In addition, please forward the email that you received from OHSU to your school secretary so that it can be shared with the school nurse.

Your school staff will then begin contact tracing to help contain the spread of COVID-19.


What if I no longer want my student to be tested?

If you change your mind after enrolling your student, just let your school secretary know that you no longer want to be part of the program.


How do I enroll my student in this weekly COVID-19 testing program?

In the next week, schools will be sending home enrollment packets. You’ll need to fill out TWO FORMS to give consent. The forms will be included in the packets. Both forms need to be returned to school NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, OCTOBER 22.

You may enroll your student after October 22; however, your student will likely miss the first round of testing.


When will this COVID-19 testing program begin?

The first tests will be sent home the week of November 8. Every school will have an assigned day of the week, and that day will remain consistent.
