If you and your child(ren) are interested in participating, please download the following linked informational flyer to learn more and to let us know if you are planning to attend.
7th Grade Requirements
Nebraska law requires all students entering 7th grade to have a complete physical (also fulfills the requirements for a sports physical).
• For those playing sports, physicals must be performed after May 1st; for all others, examinations must be performed after March 1st.
• A Tdap booster given after 10 years of age prior to entering 7th grade is also required.
Please call your health care provider to schedule your child's physical and immunizations (call now—appointments fill up fast). Once completed, we ask that you turn in your completed physical, along with immunizations,
to the ABC Building (909 S. 76th Street) before August 1st.
Please email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Returning Student Registration
Be on the lookout in April for our Returning Student Registration process for current Westside students. Starting in mid-April, parents will be asked to login to their parent PowerSchool account and update information and permission forms for the 2019-2020 school year.
Completing these forms now will reduce—at least a little bit—the information overload parents face when school starts in August. Once you're finished, your child will be registered for the 2019-2020 school year. and we will have up-to-date contact information for back-to-school communication this summer.
