A Note from Nurse Gina
Help Westside fill our hallways with our word of the month “Courage”! Your child may color at home and bring to Mrs. Page or their teacher! We will be discussing what this word means over the next few weeks in our counseling lessons!
Please remember to fill out this survey for Mrs. Page to better serve your child here at Westside.
Fifth Grade Parents

A Quick Note from Ms. Long
Please send water with your child this year in a closed top container since our water fountains will be turned off. We will have touchless water refill stations at school this year to refill water.
Check the changes to our daily schedule. Arrival times have changed.
Please screen your child before school each morning! Keeping our students safe is our top priority!
