After School Plans
Please remember that after school plans should be made in the morning. Students are expected to be off school grounds by 3:45 pm (3:15 pm on Wednesdays). Each child should know what the after school plan is. Students going home with another child after school should make plans ahead of time.
Please remember to notify the school if there is an unexpected change of after school plans for your child. If you know in the morning, a note to the teacher and main office is always appreciated. We appreciate your cooperation in making sure your child is safe.
Westside Community Schools Holiday Assistance
It’s hard to believe but the holiday season is right around the corner. As part of the Westside Community Schools family, we are fortunate to have some groups and organizations that are generous in many ways, especially when it comes to helping children.
Each year, several churches in the community, community service clubs and individual donors offer to help students whose families may be experiencing some temporary financial setbacks due to the tough economic times. These groups often donate a food basket, clothing and/or gifts. These items are meant to assist you in what you are already providing for your family.
If your family is not receiving assistance from other organizations, we are here to provide support. If you need assistance during the holiday season, please contact your school psychologist/counselor or school social worker.
Please know that we are here at all times of the year to assist you and your child (ren). If we can answer any questions, please don’t hesitate to call.

Free Meals, Free/Reduced Applications Available
ALL Westside Community Schools students will receive FREE meals (breakfast & lunch) for the 21/22 school year. Meals are funded by the US Department of Agriculture, as an extension of waivers issued to provide safe, healthy food for children during the COVID-19 pandemic. •If your child orders extras or a la carte items, those items must be paid for.
An important note: if you qualify for Free or Reduced Meals, please fill out an application with Westside Community Schools! While meals are free for all students this school year, your application will ensure student benefits including discounts on computers, transportation, summer camps and more.
