Westdale Weekly- March 21

Westdale Weekly- March 21

This week, we will have virtual parent and teacher conferences on Tuesday, March 23rd and Thursday, March 25th from 4:30pm-8:00pm.  If you have not signed up for conferences, you have until 3:00 PM tomorrow, Monday, March 22, 2021 to sign-up.  You must use the PowerPTC.net link and the code that was sent to you on March 11th to sign-up.

During the conference nights, we will have Kindergarten registration.  If you have a child who will attend Kindergarten in the Fall, please come to one of the conference nights to prove residency and register your child for Kindergarten.  For everyone’s safety, we ask that you come on your own and that you do not bring children with you.  We will only allow one parent in the school to register.  Please bring your child’s original birth certificate and proof of residence.  The registration hours are from 4:30 PM to 8:00 PM.

Erin’s Law, House Bill 6193 was signed on January 24, 2013. This law requires schools to implement an age-appropriate sexual assault and abuse awareness and prevention curriculum for grades pre-K through 12.  This Month, Westdale’s Hybrid Students will view a pre-recorded presentation on Sexual Abuse Awareness.  Please refer to Mr. Petroline’s post on Class Dojo for more information.  If you want to have your child opt out, please contact your child’s teacher.

Beginning on Wednesday, April 7, 2021, we will have in-person learning for our hybrid students.  We are able to clean the school in the middle of the day and in the evening, so we do not need to close schools on Wednesdays for the purpose of cleaning.  Therefore, all hybrid students will attend their current AM or PM sessions, Monday through Friday.

The Mannheim Early Childhood Center is holding Virtual Preschool screenings for March and April. Please contact the MECC office to get on the screening list.  Please note that a screening must take place to see if your child qualifies for the Pre-K program. Mannheim Early Childhood Center is currently filling up spots for the remainder of this year and registering students for the 21-22 school year.
