Westview Wildcat Weekly

September 13 - 17, 2021

Westview Community,

Thank you for a successful start to this school year. We have missed our students and staff and have been eager for this week for quite some time. This week was spent building community and reestablishing relationships. We have spent some time away from in-person instruction and we want to dedicate time to make sure all students are ready to begin this school year.


Westview students are doing a great job keeping masks on and following distance guidelines. It appears our students understand the need to do our part to help keep us safe and in school.


Thank you!

Student Drop-Off

Families please remember the north-side of the parking lot is for student drop-offs. This morning 9/10 there was an incident where a student was dropped off on 185th and was hit by a vehicle crossing the street. Please do not stop on 185th to let your student out of the car.

Parking at Westview

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. For safety, 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.

We also want to make you aware of our current student parking situation at Westview High School. Many neighborhoods surrounding Westview 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.


We ask our Westview drivers to please be kind, respectful, and follow all traffic and parking rules when driving and parking on school grounds.

ATTENDANCE

Westview High School has a proud tradition of excellence and we continue to strive for academic gains across all curricular areas for all students. One essential component in this process is to have students in regular daily attendance, on time, ready to learn.

The Attendance Office is open from 7:15 am to 3:30 pm, but phone messages can be left 24 hours a day. If your student will be absent from school, please call the attendance line as early in the day as possible. We make every effort to get excused absences recorded in the computer as quickly as possible, but some data may be entered after the AutoDialer begins making phone calls at 1:30 pm. If you have a question about whether an attendance was recorded properly, the fastest way to check is to use ParentVue to see the attendance record for each of your students. You may report errors to Diane Jordan in the Attendance Office through email or phone message at 503-356-3021.


WHEN A STUDENT IS ABSENT THE ENTIRE DAY:

  • Students are not allowed to excuse themselves
  • Parent/guardian must call the Attendance Hotline at 503-356-3021
  • Absences must be reported the same day of the absence. Please have the following information:
    • Student's full name (please spell uncommon names)
    • Student's six-digit I.D. number
    • Your name and relationship to the student (parent, guardian, etc)
    • Reason for the absence (from the list below)
      • Illness
      • Medical appointment
      • Family emergency
      • Death in the immediate family
      • Pre-arranged absence
      • Religious observance
      • Other administrative approved reason


WHEN A STUDENT ARRIVES TO SCHOOL LATE:

  • Parent should call the Attendance Office before the student arrives to school, or provide the student with a note from the parent or guardian the day of the late arrival. Parents do not need to accompany the student if they have called or provided a note. Please be sure to indicate the reason for the tardy as well as the student's name and ID.
    • Excused tardies include: medical appointment, illness, and family emergencies.
    • Unexcused tardies include: oversleeping, missing the bus, finishing homework/studying at home, and "running late."
  • Students should go directly to the Attendance Office when they arrive.

WHEN A STUDENT NEEDS TO LEAVE SCHOOL EARLY:

Once a student is on campus, the student must remain on campus. If it is necessary for the student to leave school for ANY reason after their initial arrival, parents must call the Attendance Line as early as possible in the morning or provide a note to the student.

If a note has been provided, student brings the note to the Attendance Office in exchange for an early release pass. If students leave and return to school, they must document the time of their return to school at the Attendance Office as well. Students who leave campus without checking out through the Attendance Office will be subject to consequences.


Makeup work: Students who have been absent have the responsibility to request and make up all missed learning. Students can also follow on Canvas to see if they can stay aware of some of the content and learning they are missing. It is always best to work with your teachers. Parents/student requests for homework related to absences of 3 or more days should be made to the Attendance Office and should allow for a 24-hour response time. The length of time for completion of make up work; the general rule is a day for a day.
