We are looking for parents to volunteer to help with our before school and after school cross-walk duties. If you would be willing to donate some of your time, please sign up for one of these crosswalk duties. The time commitment is about 20 minutes either before or after school and it is a great way to see the excitement in our students faces as they come to school and the smiles as they leave from a day full of awesomeness. The sign up will be in the office.Sending love to El Paso - Thanks to our 3rd and 5th graders who wrote postcards sending love and kind words to students in El Paso, Texas after the tragedy there in August. A huge shout to Heidi Breunerfor donating the postcards to our students.Support Westergard's PTO - Our PTO does amazing things for our students, staff, and families.

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.Before and after school childcare is available through Sierra Kids from 7:00 - 8:40 am and 3:00 - 6:00 pm, and 2:15 - 6:00 pm on Wednesdays. Please call 775-334-4280 for additional information.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.The Washoe County School District website may contain links that lead to resources, video, etc., which is located on servers that are not maintained or controlled by the District.
