~Westmoor Update~

Week of November 14th

Principal's Message

Dear Westmoor Families,


Attendance Matters

Support your child to be successful in school. Help your child understand that school is their highest priority. Make school attendance a priority for your child. Talk with your child about the importance of daily attendance in every classroom and how important it is for their learning. When students miss so much school they are not prepared for success and there is a higher possibility of dropping out and not graduating. Help your child practice good daily habits: Please review with your child:

  • Finishing homework and placing it in his/her backpack

  • Laying out clothes and the backpack in the evening

  • Having a regular bedtime for a good night's sleep

  • Leaving early enough (give yourself an extra 20 minutes) to arrive at school

  • Turn off all electronic devices one hour before bedtime

  • Help your child build responsibility skills by reminding them to make up any missed school work after an absence. Have them email their teachers and check Google Classroom for missed assignments.


When your child is sick

  • Only let your child stay home if he/she is truly sick. Sometimes complaints of a headache or stomach ache might be a sign of anxiety and not a reason to stay home. Contact the teacher and wellness counselor for support if you think this might be happening.

  • Follow these Sick Day Guidelines for Families if you are not sure if you should keep your child at home due to illness.


Appointments and vacations

  • Make every effort to schedule doctor, dentist, and other appointments after school hours.

  • If your child must be out of school for an appointment, get him/her back to school for at least part of the school day.

  • Plan vacations when school is not in session.


Attendance records

  • Contact the school every time your child will be absent.

  • Check your child's attendance regularly on ParentVue or with school staff.

  • Use ParentVue to keep your contact information up-to-date with the school (phone numbers, address, parent work location, email address).
