Covid 19 Positive Case Communication

HRCSD is focused on communicating clearly and quickly to families who may be impacted by positive COVID-19 cases.

  • If there is a positive COVID-19 case in a student’s classroom, that class (cohort) will receive a message directly from HRCSD, notifying the families of the positive case and identifying any necessary action items and/or next steps.

  • If there is a positive COVID-19 case in a student’s school, all school families will receive a message directly from HRCSD, notifying the families of the positive case and letting them know any impact it has on school operations.

  • Students who have to quarantine due to a positive COVID-19 case will be offered Comprehensive Distance Learning (CDL).

  • Please note, specific names and personally identifiable information will NOT be shared in the messages related to a positive COVID-19 case.

Free Dental Sealants

Parents, teachers, and students at Westside School! We are excited about the upcoming FREE school-based dental sealant program taking place this school year. Parents save time in your busy schedules and sign your child up for this FREE program held during school hours at Westside School. Dental sealants on molars are proven to help prevent tooth decay by 80%! Helping to keep students in class learning and their smiles healthy for a lifetime.

Westside parents the permission form was sent home in your child’s backpack, but if you missed our permission form no problem, please take this time to complete your form digitally this year with our QR permission form code! Permission forms are also available at the Westside School front office. Please return those permission slips to the school indicating “yes” or “no” as soon as possible! One Community Health will be at Westside School soon!

September 15 - October 15 is National Hispanic American Heritage Month

National Hispanic Heritage Month traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month we will be sharing with our students the history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present.

Covid Safety Protocols

  • Parents/guardians are to send healthy students to school & keep students home when ill.

  • Parents/guardians will screen students for primary COVID symptoms prior to sending students to school. Students must not come to school if showing any symptoms related to COVID-19 and/or if they have a fever. Primary COVID-19 symptoms include the following:

    • Fever of 100.4oF or higher

    • Chills

    • Cough

    • Shortness of breath

    • Difficulty breathing

    • New loss of taste or loss of smell

  • Students and staff will need to adhere to daily use of masks, maintain at least 3 feet of physical distance between students to the greatest extent possible in all indoor settings and buses and engage in frequent hand washing and/or use of hand sanitizer.

  • When students are at least three feet apart and everyone is wearing a face covering, students who are in close contact with someone with COVID-19 don’t need to quarantine unless they have symptoms.

  • Staff and students can be outdoors without a face covering.
