activities are being planned for this special day – which we will
celebrate on the 28th. Watch for details to come home with your
child/children.

Westwood Security
The Westwood staff is extremely grateful for the added level of
security that our controlled entrance provides. Non-school
personnel are asked to sign in each time they are needing to be in
the building. Parents are not allowed to enter the building at any
entrance other than the main entrance.
All of us at Westwood have an obligation to not only teach our
children, but to nurture them and provide a safe environment.

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.

Safety Tip
Be sure your child knows their
home address, phone number
and the name of their parents’
place(s) of work. Remind your
child to never go anywhere with a
stranger.
