The Buzz at Westbrook School

October 30, 2020

From the Principal's Office:

Dear Westbrook Families,


Westbrook teachers and staff are working hard to prepare for our second trimester learning transition, if metrics allow. We are excited to welcome students who are selecting hybrid learning back in the buildings in a safe way very soon. A reminder, you can expect a return-to-school email confirmation on Monday, November 2 regarding our elementary hybrid model beginning, as planned, on Monday, November 9.


Also this upcoming week, please watch your emails for a message from Mr. Karl Anderson, assistant principal. If our transition is confirmed, Mr. Anderson will be sending a back-to-in-person learning video for parents to watch with students who will be coming to school. The video describes routines we have planned for in person learning. Please watch the video and support our efforts for students to return to school safely.


Please follow us on Twitter and Instagram! Our username is: westbrook_school_d57.

Happy Halloween. Enjoy the weekend.

Susan Woodrow
