Dear WACS Families:

In compliance with the Governor’s order to continue school closures through April 14, WACS will continue to provide education remotely. The order requires schools and WACS to provide education during our previously scheduled recess. We will provide education for the duration of our scheduled recess and support our families. Our staff will maintain regular communication with students and families. We continue to monitor the health crisis and will notify our families of any changes that may occur.

Our food service team and transportation teams are preparing meals for our students to extend through our recess. Families will receive a larger portion of food the week prior to meet the nutritional needs of our students during the week of April 13. If possible, please be prepared with a box or cooler located on your porch for our staff to place that food inside. Also, please be prepared to store this quantity of food. If you have not signed up to receive meals for your student(s), please contact 326-2196 for assistance.

Please continue to visit our Facebook page, webpage and listen for our voice messaging system to receive updates.

Be well and safe Westfield.

Michael Cipolla – Superintendent of Schools

Good afternoon Westfield Families:

Students in grades 6-12 should report tomorrow. Our school day will be modified and we will dismiss at 9:00 AM. Our transportation department will pick-up students at their regular pick-up location and time. Students will arrive at the normal start time by bus or parent drop off. At our 9:00 AM dismissal, we will provide transportation home for students. Students will meet with their teachers and gather the materials necessary for our school closure and their education. Students unable to attend, please contact your principal to make arrangements to receive your materials.

Students in grades Pre-K through 5 do not need to report tomorrow. Your child’s teacher will be in contact with you to discuss the educational plan moving forward.

Our District will be serving breakfast and lunch to all students Monday-Friday during the closure.

We designated our parent loop as a pickup location for breakfast and lunches. Families may pick up between the hours of 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM. We will deliver food to your vehicle. During this time students will receive their lunch for the day and breakfast for the following day.

If you are unable to pick-up food, we can arrange for delivery. Please contact 326-2196 to make arrangements.

All school activities and athletics are postponed at this time. Please plan on a closure to extend through April 20th. We will update on any changes to this date.
