Westview Cat Cave
Hello, Westview Parents,
Westview has a Free Student Clothes Closet (and Household Items, too), known as the "Cat Cave".
- Located in Portable #6, which is directly out the back doors of the Student Center.
- Will be open during student lunch hours throughout the school year (final schedule to be determined). If those times do not work for your child, please contact their counselor or email Westview's Social Worker, Caty Marshall at email@example.com
Please be sure to have your student stop by to pick up any needed clothes, shoes, school supplies, household supplies and/or toiletries/personal care items.
We have a limits on the following:
- Backpacks - 1 per student per school year (If yours breaks during the school year, we would absolutely replace it.)
- Shoes - 4 pairs per student per school year - We do ask that you spread them out so that we have a supply for all.
- Winter Coats - 1 per person per school year
- RainCoats - 1 per person per school year
- Calculators - 1 per person per school year
- Household supplies - limits are noted on each bin and is per visit per family.
Cat Cave Volunteers Needed
The Cat Cave (Westview's Free Student Clothing and Household Items Closet) is looking for parent volunteers to act as Coordinators, as well as cover lunches so students will have access to the Cave during school hours.
If you are interested in volunteering, please email whsCatCave@gmail.com or reach out to Westview's Social Worker, Caty Marshall at Caty_Marshall@beaverton.k12.or.us.
Congratulations Sam Bouchard and Thilaga Arunarasu!
Sam Bouchard '23, and Thilaga Arunarasu '23 were recipients of the Jonathan D. Lewis Scholarship for $2,000 for their research in the Partnership for Scientific Inquiry Program at OHSU this summer.
Sam worked with world-renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Ahmed Raslan at the OHSU Neurosurgery Spine Center researching the Triple Code Model for numerical cognition as well as cutting-edge invasive neuroimaging in severe traumatic brain injury patients. He will co-author a manuscript entitled "Exploring Numerical Cognition with Intracranial Electroencephalography", in preparation.
Thilaga worked with Dr. Danielle Osborne in the DOW Neurobiology lab at Legacy Health, helping with her research on how obesity increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by looking at the hippocampi of mice.

Parking Flow and DropOff / PickUp
We want to make you aware of the parking situation at Westview High School. Most neighborhoods surrounding Westview now have restricted parking on their streets. They have signs posted on their streets that say "No Parking Except By Permit." Please do not park in their neighborhoods to avoid ticket fees and/or potential towing.
Traffic flow before and after school can be chaotic. We would like to minimize the chaos as much as possible by establishing clear routes for drop-off and pick-up locations. We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding. The true secret to arriving to school on-time and with less traffic is arriving early.
The traffic route on the North-side is for drop-offs, and the other traffic route is on the South-side for student drivers. On the South-side, remember that students are parking and then walking to the building. We do not want any drop-offs happening here. Please do not drop off students on the South side. All Drop-offs should only happen on the North Side. Please follow the route on the map.
Parents and Students, please be kind, respectful, and follow all traffic and parking rules when driving and parking on school grounds.
Assigned parking will not start for at least the first two weeks of school. We are selling parking spaces to 12th graders during the first two weeks and remaining spots to 11th graders the following week through a lottery if needed. Assigned parking will not begin until the September 26.
If you need to park in the neighborhoods around our campus, please pay attention to areas that require permits. Also, be sure to park safely and respectfully in these areas. Thank you!
Hello students and welcome back. Our counselors just wanted to let you know, courses are very full this year. Counselors have worked diligently to ensure that every student starts the school year with a full and appropriate schedule for the beginning of the school year. We also wanted to let everyone know that we are not able to make schedule changes based on teacher preference, elective choice, lunch choice, athletics, or period preference.
Schedule corrections will only be made for students who have a hole in their schedule, who are placed in the wrong level of class, for Juniors or Seniors who wish to drop a class for late arrival/early release, Teacher Aide, or Office Aide, or a class that may be needed to be on track for graduation.
Please refer to the list below of appropriate and inappropriate schedule change requests:
Examples of Appropriate requests
● Filling a hole
● Placement in the wrong level of a course (such as AGS III if they haven’t completed
● Errors such a course that has already been taken
Examples of Inappropriate requests
● Teacher changes
● Switching class periods
● Changing electives for any reason
● Requesting a different lunch
These policies have been communicated to students and their families during course selection in the Spring.
If you have an appropriate schedule change request, please come up to the library, complete a schedule change request form and during the first week of school, a counselor will be available to meet with you to provide the support you need for your schedule.
Please do not email counselors schedule change requests. If you have a request, please complete the schedule change form and submit it for a counselor to review. Email requests will not be accepted.
The last day for all schedule changes will be on Tuesday, September 13th, 2022. We will not be accepting forms past this date.
