The Compass

Week of August 22, 2022

Navigation Notes

Greetings Westside Families! We had a great week with ALL of our Explorers on campus. Thank you for your patience with arrival and dismissal as we ensured our littlest Explorers were safe and cared for starting last week.

Reminder that Westside qualified as a CEP school which means that ALL students will receive a FREE breakfast and FREE lunch daily! You may still set up an account for "a la carte' items at

SAVE THE DATE: Open House will be on Thursday, September 1st from 5p-7p. See below for more details.

Arrival Updates: With many new families joining our school, the morning car loop and arrival is very busy. We have been working on solutions to ease the traffic and speed up the process. See the options below:

  • ALL car riders can come through the SIDE car loop in the mornings starting at 7:30-8:00AM as we have been doing. Please be sure your child is ready to exit car once you approach the unloading zone.

  • * NEW* After 7:45AM each morning when buses are gone, families may begin using the FRONT car loop as well to decrease the traffic and time. You will be directed to pull through the lane closest to building like our dismissal process. Please be sure your child is ready to exit car once you approach the unloading zone. This option closes at 8:00AM.

  • If you choose, families may PARK in our front lot and WALK your child up to the front doors.

  • If you are running late, please park and escort your child into the Front Office to sign them in. Doors close at 8:00am.

As always, thank you for your support! Our office will be open Monday-Friday from 7:30AM-3:30PM. Please come on in if we can assist you in any way.
