From Mrs. Lay

Each and every day I am humbled and honored to work with the amazing staff at Whiteside Elementary. This past week more than ever. As the events of a hoax bomb threat unfolded the staff at Whiteside was prepared, calm, professional, and loving to ensure that our students were always safe. Know that your child's safety is our highest priority. Thank you for the many words of encouragement, praise, and prayers that you shared with us. If you are having difficulty receiving Whiteside notifications please contact us at 219-7300 so we can troubleshoot.
