Important Reminders Regarding Arrival Procedures

Our school day begins at 9:00am. At 8:55am, a bell rings and students to line-up and proceed to their classrooms. Students who arrive between 8:40am-8:55am will begin their day on the playground where staff members supervise a morning arrival time. In the case of inclement weather, students will proceed to the gym and cafeteria during this time. Please do not drop your child off before 8:40am. We are not able to provide supervision of students prior to that time.


Students who arrive after 9:00am are tardy and must check-in at the main office before proceeding to their classrooms. Please make every effort to help your child arrive before our 9:00am start time.

Reminder: Message from the Westwood Public Library

Please read the following message from the Westwood Public Library:


The Westwood Library attracts large numbers of kids who come to the library after school. This year, we are trying to be pro-active about sharing library behavior expectations with children and families. We encourage family members to review the expected behaviors with their children. Thank you for your support.

Reminder: Updating Permissions in Aspen

In order to ensure that we have the most up-to-date information about our students, all families are required to submit annual signoffs and permissions for each child through Aspen. The submission includes contact and medical information, student handbook acknowledgment, media and other permissions, and the free and reduced lunch application. This task is required annually, even if no information has changed from last year.


To complete the process, please login to your account on our Aspen family portal and click on Annual Signoffs and Permissions. Please be aware that if you have multiple children in the Westwood Public Schools, a separate form needs to be submitted for each child.
