Deerfield PTO Event: Trivia Night on Wednesday

The Deerfield PTO has planned a fun community “Trivia Night” event. All Deerfield staff members and their families are welcome.

  • Event: Virtual Family Trivia (facilitated by The Trivia Brothers)
  • Date: December 15, 2021
  • Time: 7:00 PM (“Virtual doors” to the waiting room will open 10 minutes prior to the start and the game will begin PROMPTLY at 7:00 PM.)
  • Format: Remote (Zoom Link: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86960297052)


Please see below for more details:

You will need TWO DEVICES in order to enjoy the optimal experience - a computer (to join the Zoom meeting) and a smartphone or tablet (to play the game). A “TEAM” can be comprised of INDIVIDUAL or MULTIPLE players. If your team consists of multiple players, we recommend not going higher than 6 people. If members of a team are in separate locations, we suggest arranging a team-wide conference call during the game. (All participants in the Zoom meeting are muted, so feel free to chat it up with your teammates over the phone.)


IMPORTANT! Each team will use ONLY ONE smartphone/tablet to enter the game and submit the answers.  If your team has multiple members, elect ONE person to register their device and answer on behalf of the team. We strongly suggest using a computer to enter the meeting and view the episode. Although it’s not mandatory, the Trivia Brothers suggest joining the meeting with video ON so they can interact with you!



Early Release Day on Wednesday, December 22nd

Next Wednesday, December 22nd will be an early-release day for students. Students will be dismissed at 11:50am and we will not have lunch or afternoon recess in school. Students who order lunch from school will get their lunch before dismissal to take home or to Extended Day. 



No School on Friday, December 24th

All Westwood Public Schools will be closed next Friday, December 24th for the start of the December vacation.
