Always a Bulldog - Also a Warrior

We want to wish our 6th Graders the very best as they move on to the next chapter in their lives. We hope they take with them memories and lessons learned and look forward to the amazing future they are about to create! We hope that you'll always know you have a home at Rockbrook and will stop by to visit!

Year Books - Limited Sale!

Our Yearbooks are in and will be distributed near the end of school to allow students to have these signed on the last day. We have a limited number that can be purchased at the front office for $15 each. These will be first come, first served.

Returning Student Registration - Help Us Keep You In the Know

Please do your Returning Student Registration so you know what to expect 2019-2020 school year. Completing this update ensures you will get our Rockbrook Summer newsletter and important information your student needs to begin next year.


Starting this year, May is the time to get current students registered for the 2019-2020 school year!


To get started, login to your parent PowerSchool account at ps.westside66.org. Then click on the Returning Student Registration button. Remember that the registration must be completed for each returning Westside student in your home.


Once you're finished, your child will be registered for the 2019-2020 school year, and we will have up-to-date contact information for back-to-school communication this summer.


What if I forgot my PowerSchool account login information?

Contact Ms. Veldhuis through email or phone or you can reset your password using the “Forgot Username or Password?” link on the login page (ps.westside66.org). Please be aware that the recovery email will be sent to the email address you used to create the account, which may not be your current email address.


If you need further assistance with your account, please email powerschool.support@westside66.net or call 402-390-2100.

Lunch Money

Please check your email, spam folder and MySchoolBucks account for your child's lunch balance. We need to have negative balances at zero or positive balances. This balance carries over to the next year. Start 2019-2020 year off right for your child's lunch account.

MIDDLE SCHOOL HEALTH PHYSICAL/IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

By law, all incoming 7th graders must present evidence of having a complete physical examination, updated immunizations (Tdap is required by state law), and a dental exam prior to entering school. For missing immunizations, state law allows us to accept only valid medical exemption forms, signed by a physician or notarized religious exemption forms. A signed waiver form from parents/guardian refusing to provide physical exam documentation is also required. All forms are available from the District’s ABC Welcome Center.


Physicians may print out results of the physical exam and immunizations on their forms, or parents may print the 7th grade health physical exam form from the WMS website found in the “Health Information” area. Exams must be completed anytime after March 1, 2019, and before school starts in the Fall. Students planning to participate in sports must have a physical dated after May 1, 2019.


If your child has a chronic condition such as asthma, diabetes, or epilepsy, a health action plan is required. Asthma action plans must be completed and signed by a doctor and may be found on the WMS website in the “Health Information” area or picked up from the WMS main office. I will be checking my email periodically during the summer. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Melissa Smith, or contact the main office at WMS for general information.
