The World of Westwood Wolves
There is no place like our PACK. #WestwoodFamily
Week of November 13th-17h, 2023
The information below was shared by the District throughout our Social Media outlets. Since we have some parents who do not use social media, we would like to share the information in our Weekly Newsletter to keep parents informed. As always, please let us know if there are questions.
Just a friendly reminder we are no longer allowed to count AMI (Alternative Methods of Instruction) days toward the state-required 178 student instruction days. If school is canceled due to a weather event, the day will be added to the end of the school year.
Solo un recordatorio amistoso: ya no podemos contar los días AMI (métodos alternativos de instrucción) para los 178 días de instrucción estudiantil requeridos por el estado. Si la escuela se cancela debido a un evento climático, el día se agregara al final del año escolar.

November treat for our awesome Westwood staff...
All parents/guardians need to complete an online information update at the beginning of each school year. This information is used to effectively communicate with you and your student(s). This information is critical to your child’s health, safety and well-being.
Using this link ( https://rgupdate.sdale.org/) you will be asked to log in and verify your child’s information. You will need their 9 digit student id for user name and their birthdate as the password (xx/xx/xxxx). This should be repeated for each enrolled child.
NOTE: A note will be coming home for students who still need to take care of this update. If you have questions, please call Ms. Griselda at 479-750-8871
How do I receive information from Westwood?
PHONE CALLS: We also send out phone calls through an automated system; you will receive these calls if your phone number is correct in Registration Gateway. If your number changes, you can update the information in Registration Gateway, or call the office to update.
SOCIAL MEDIA/WEBSITE: The weekly parent update and other announcements/stories are also posted on our school's Facebook page and website. We are working on activating our school's Instagram account also- we'll let you know when that's up and running.
PAPER NOTES: We also send out paper notes at times; most of these will be sent in folders that come home every Tuesday. Every now and then, we need to send information on other days, so it's a great practice to check the backpacks each afternoon/evening.
We don't want you to miss any information, so we put things out in lots of ways!
Mark your calendars!

Our School Day
- If you have students in grades Kindergarten through 2nd grade, your students will need to be dropped off and picked up in the front of the building.
- If you have students in grades 3rd-5th your students will need to be dropped off and picked up on the east side of the building.
- For the safety of all students, please have their car tag hanging on the rear view mirror as we are continuing to use the same dismissal procedures as the last couple of years.
- Teachers and support staff will be available to help students find their way to their classroom the first few days of school.
- Once again this year, students who are walkers or bike riders will be dismissed on the far side of the fence on McRay Ave.
- We ask that parents do not congregate inside the fence for our students' safety.
- We will continue to have a cross guard at the corner of McRay Ave. and Carlton St.
- We ask that students and their families refrain from crossing in front of the building on McRay Ave.
We appreciate your patience as we work through all of these items on the first days of school. Our students' safety is our number one priority. We cannot do it without your help!
