Westwood Middle School

Moving Information December 2021

Westwood Families-

The time has come! We are all excited to start 2022 in our new building. It has been a long anticipated wait and we could not be more thrilled to welcome our students back on January 3, 2022.

The first week back, students will be adjusting to their new surroundings and getting used to the "new building smell," they will also need to get accustomed to new lockers and the layout of the building. This would also be a good time to replenish school supplies.

A few new things:

  • All students will be receiving a new schedule (no changes except room numbers) and a map of the new building on Thursday December 16th.
  • All students will be REQUIRED to use their assigned locker upon their return. Coats and book bags will be kept in the lockers during the day.
  • Masks will be optional for all students.
