Rockbrook Elementary School's Weekly Updates | 02-28-2020
Please return conference forms as soon as possible to confirm your time.
Family Movie Night
Doors Open at 6:00 - Movie Begins at 6:30
Note: We will not need to adjust lunch schedules this year on these days as we have shifted to morning hours and will simply adjust the classes during this time.
Morning Arrival Reminder
It is very important for the safety of children that they not arrive to school before 8:15am. This is when outside supervision begins and breakfast is served. Students not coming to breakfast should be dropped off as close to 8:30 as is possible, as this is when they are allowed to go down to class. Thank you for your support in the safety of our students.
Supporting the school couldn't be easier. Just download the TAGG App and scan your receipts at participating locations. Set Rockbrook as you cause and the business donates back to us!

Kindergarten Enrollment for District Residents: January 20th - February 28th
Do you live in the District and have a child who will be ready for Kindergarten this fall? Do you know of other Westside residents with children who will be ready to start school in August?
Kindergarten enrollment for 2020-2021 begins January 20, 2020. Parents of eligible students should go to westside66.org to begin the enrollment process as early as possible on or after January 20th.
Students entering kindergarten for 2020-2021 must be five years old by July 31, 2020. Parents may opt to hold their children out of kindergarten for an additional year. However, Nebraska state law mandates that a child who reaches six years of age prior to January 1 of the then-current school year must be enrolled in school.
If you have questions, you may call the Westside Welcome Center at 402-390-2100.
Kindergarten Enrollment for Non-District Residents
If you live outside the District and have a child eligible for kindergarten who has a sibling currently attending a Westside elementary school through the Option Enrollment program, you must submit an Option Enrollment Application. Westside’s Office of Student Services must receive Option Enrollment Applications no later than 4:00 p.m. on March 15, 2020. The application form is available at the ABC Building (909 S. 76th Street) and our district website. Click here to complete the form electronically.
Under Option Enrollment statutes, first priority for admission is given to siblings who seek to attend in the District where an older sibling is already enrolled, provided an Option Enrollment form is submitted by March 15 and provided that there is space available in a requested building and grade level. If you have questions, you may call Julie Fumagalli at 402-390-2107.
