Message from the Principal

Westbrook Families,

It was a special week for all students as we welcomed back an IN PERSON book fair. Thank you to all of our parent volunteers that helped out at the book fair this week. A big thanks to Megan Freeley for organizing the book fair in collaboration with the PTA!

As you may have experienced if you were in the building at anytime this week, or you may have heard from your student, parts of Westbrook were quite warm this week.

As you know, Westbrook is currently undergoing a substantial renovation both to the interior and exterior parts of the building. A part of this renovation is the installation of a brand new cooling tower and system. The HVAC system is still circulating air throughout the building bringing in outside air. We continue to use Merv filters across the building as this is the filter the district has utilized all year long. Without heat or air conditioning, we can expect to experience cooler temperatures in the morning and warmer temperatures in the afternoon. Please dress your children in layers as they will likely be cold and hot at different times throughout the day.

The district office did provide fans for all classrooms at Westbrook on Thursday Morning. We appreciate your understanding as we work through construction, and look forward to welcoming our staff, students and families to the new and much improved Westbrook in August!

Also, a big congratulations to the following Westbrook staff members for hitting milestone years of service in Glenview School District 34.

Place orders before 5/27. LATE ORDERS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Reminder: Make sure to choose the correct grade for the 2022-23 school year. The kit company DOES NOT provide refunds if the incorrect box is ordered.

Construction Update

This week interior and exterior work made some significant progress! Ceiling tiles have been added to classrooms and now classrooms are complete for our Full Day Kindergarten rooms. Furniture will be placed inside these classrooms during the middle of July! Flooring and final touches are being finished up! The exterior of the building has been graded for the addition of our bus and parent drop off lanes. Curbs and sidewalks will be starting next week! It is certainly starting to look more like a school!
