2018-19 Registration - Enjoy your two weeks off March 26 - April 3, 2018!
School Calendar Update - Enrollment for returning students is now open and will continue until Friday, April 27. It is necessary to do the update on Infinite Campus through your Parent Portal, as well as provide the office with a current utility bill to show proof of address in our school zone. Online registration and proof of address must be completed by April 27 for your child to be included on a class list for the 2018-19 school year. If you know your child will not be returning to Westergard, please let the office know as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please call Westergard at 746-5800.
Saturday, April 21 - Our Barnes & Noble event is from 10 am to 2 pm. Special stories will be read by Westergard teachers throughout the day and you can enjoy a tasty Wildcat drink from Starbucks. You can also vote for your favorite T-shirt design for our Jog-a-thon. If you make purchases that day, remember to tell the cashier it's for "Westergard" and our school we receive a percentage of the sales anytime throughout the day or online. We hope you'll join us and show your support for Westergard.
Updates to the Birthday and Treats Policy - Due to changes in nutrition guidelines, we will no longer be flexible grade level to grade level or classroom to classroom for our designated treat days. Therefore, we will only recognize the dates listed in the school calendar. Please coordinate with your child's teacher for specific for his/her classroom: February 14, March 23, April 27, and May 25.

School Police Traffic Safety Updates
Our Safe Routes to School Coordinator, Officer Cloud, has completed an excellent back to school safety video.
We know that parking is limited, and we are sorry about that. It is our priority to keep our children safe. The BEST place to park for any length of time is on Avenida de Landa or on the north side of Ambassador! There is no parent parking or drop off or pick up in the staff parking lot – it is not safe for students, and we really don’t even have enough parking spots for our staff members. Also – the YELLOW zones are for dropping off and picking up students – not for parking and leaving the car. The only place a car is to be parked and left is at a regular (not painted) curb. No parking at all at RED curbs. We do have a handicapped (BLUE) designation at the front of the school.
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.
