Morning Arrival

Our school day begins at 8:30 am. Drop off time for breakfast is 8:10 am. All other students will be able to enter the building at 8:20 am. As long as the temperature is not below a "feels like" temperature of 10 degrees, your student will be asked to wait outside. Please make sure they are dressed accordingly.

Wednesday Dismissal

Every Wednesday we will end the school day at 3:00 pm instead of 3:30 pm. This gives our teachers throughout the District collaboration time by attending weekly professional learning communities.


In addition to the classroom teacher, please also contact the main office at (402) 390-6480 or drelicharz.cristina@westside66.net with any information related to your child's attendance.

This includes:

•Late Arrival-include lunch preference

•Absence-include reason for absence

•Early pick up/appointments

•Change of pick up arrangements

If your student is not in their classroom by 8:30 am they must come to the main office to sign in or they will be counted absent. Students coming or going during the day for appointments, illness, etc also must sign in and out through the main office.

After School Plans

Please remember that after school plans should be made in the morning. Students are expected to be off school grounds by 3:45 pm (3:15 pm on Wednesdays). Each child should know what the after school plan is. Students going home with another child after school should make plans ahead of time.

Please remember to notify the school if there is an unexpected change of after school plans for your child. If you know in the morning, a note to the teacher and main office is always appreciated. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure your child is safe.
