    Students return on August 12. Be sure to call our office over the summer with any questions you have about the new school year. And, keep an eye on our website for dates about Meet the Teacher and Back to School Nights. Happy summer!
    New Phones at Westergard! The school district recently upgraded our phone system. Please pardon the hiccups as we transition from the old format. There will be a prompt when you call to help you reach the appropriate person/department on campus.

    WCSD's New Attendance Policy - Parents, changes have been made to our attendance policy and we encourage your to read about them. Click here to learn more.

    Supervision Before and After School - Prior to 8:40 am and after 3 pm, there is no supervision on the playgrounds. At the end of the day, students who are not with a parent or guardian, or monitored by Sierra Kids, will need to sit in the office to wait for parents to pick them up or head home if they are walkers. We want to keep all students safe and avoid injuries due to lack of supervision. Thank you for understanding and for your assistance in this matter.

    Student Drop-off and Pick-up - Within the Ambassador Drive “Kiss and Go” please do not park. This is a drop-off and pick-up zone only. Please watch for students on the crosswalk. Parents, if at all possible, ask your students to walk along the south side (the u-side) of the kiss and go sidewalk. It is easier for the cars to see the pedestrians.
