Safety Week
Westwood will conduct safety drills December 4-7, 2018. This would be a good time to go over your household safety  plans with your children.
• Fire Drill
• Severe Weather Drill
•Emergency Intruder Drill

A Great Gift Idea: School Supplies
Stock your student’s stocking with a new batch of school supplies for the spring semester. Many students are running low on pencils, erasers, wet-wipes, etc. so fill those stockings with a gift that will last all year.

Winter Break
• School will not be in session December 21, 2018-January 7, 2019.
• Students will return to school on Tuesday, January 8th at 8 a.m.
• We hope you and your family have a safe and happy break!

Winter Attire
As a reminder for the colder weather, please make sure that your students have appropriate clothing for shortened recesses. We will try and go outside as much as possible, based on the wind chill and actual temperature each day. Please make sure that your children have a heavy coat, hats and gloves and that their names are on
them.
Please let us know if you are in need of winter clothing items and we will do our best to find something for your child.
We want everyone to be safe and warm and still have the opportunity for fresh air and movement, when possible.

Absences
Be sure to call in your child’s absence by 8:30 a.m. If a parent doesn’t call, the absence is unexcused.

Phone Numbers
If you change your phone number please notify the office. It is very important that we are able to reach parents in
case of an emergency.

Emergency Contacts
Are your Emergency Contacts current in Family Skyward? We can only release your child to individuals listed. They
must be older than age 18.

Westwood PTO
Join us for our meeting on Tuesday, December 11th at 4:30 p.m.
