Sports season has begun
I am thrilled to share with you the exciting news that our 7th and 8th grade sports season has officially kicked off! It has been a joy to witness the enthusiasm and dedication our students have shown as they step onto the field, court, and course with determination and passion. The camaraderie and sportsmanship displayed during practices and tryouts have been truly heartwarming. As our athletes embark on this journey, I am confident that they will not only hone their skills but also learn valuable lessons about teamwork, perseverance, and discipline. It has also been exciting to see all of the 6th grade students engaging at the games and supporting their peers. Let's cheer on our young athletes as they embrace the challenges and triumphs that lie ahead!
As always, if you need anything please call the main office at (308) 385-5886.

Mr. Schneider is quickly getting these 7th grade students concert ready. The students in this photo are seventh graders that are new to band. Last week they were just learning how to move air through a mouthpiece, and now this group is learning to read and play notes. If you see these students in the halls, be sure to ask how their woodwind training is going!
This is just a reminder that breakfast is available in the cafeteria daily from 7:45 am - 8:10 am. If a bus is late to school students should check-in in the main office for attendance purposes and then may get breakfast.
Chromebook Protection Plan
Don't forget to signup for our Chromebook protection plan for $10. Your student can sign-up in the main office or you can pay by using this link: https://gips.revtrak.net/district-payments/#/v/gips-computer-protection-plan
Students are required to have a student ID visible on their upper body at all times when they are in the building. All students will receive a temporary ID and lanyard on the first day of school. They will need to exchange that temporary ID for their permanent ID approximately 1 week after school pictures are taken. If a student forgets their ID they may purchase a temporary sticker ID in the main office for $1. Students may also purchase a new lanyard in the main office for $1. If a student loses their ID they may purchase a new ID and lanyard for $5 in the main office.
Dress for Success
To help ensure we start the year with positive momentum at Westridge, we wanted to share a friendly reminder about the “Dress for Success” district dress code.
Your students deserve to be confident AND prepared while at school. Part of those preparation efforts include dress code.
Apparel must comply with health and safety codes and not detract from learning.
For all students, mid-thigh to top of chest are to be covered while also concealing undergarments.
Approved religious attire or protective headwraps are approved. At this time, due to safety - hoods, caps, bandanas, durags, etc. are not approved to wear while in school buildings.
IDs must be worn and be visible at all times.
