From the Principal...

Dear Westbrook Families,


It is hard to believe that we are already in the middle of May and that the school year is coming to an end. We are so appreciative of your support and partnership during this time. I hope you and your family had opportunities to play, tinker, create, and read together this week!


*Families, please remember to continue to take attendance by noon each day of remote learning. Thank you!


End of the Year Supply Pick-Up and Drop-Off

Please see the attachment to find out more information regarding supply pick-up and drop-off.


All families will have materials that will need to be picked up, unless you hear otherwise from your child’s teacher.


If you have multiple children at Westbrook, we ask that you follow the schedule for your youngest child.


Has Your Family Recently Moved or Are you Planning on Moving?

Planning for the 2020-21 school year is underway! If your child will not be returning to Westbrook for the 2020-21 school year, please email wb-office@d57.org. (This does not include 1st graders going to Lions Park or Fairview.)
