Email Updates 2021
Dear Westside Christian Families:
School will resume tomorrow, Tuesday, March 2nd. It will be a Red Day.
Thank you for your understanding about today. We have concluded a thorough contact tracing, and families have been notified via email if their student was potentially exposed. If you did not receive an email, then your student was not exposed and you are free to attend in person classes tomorrow. This is only the second time this year that we have had to shut down school due to a potential Covid exposure risk. As with the last incident, we do not expect this one to produce any major issues due to the effective protocols in place on campus. We will continue to monitor carefully as we proceed through the remainder of the school year, and will keep you apprised of any future problems. With Google classroom, and teacher updates, we will continue to always provide distance learning should another day like this occur.
Some things this week to be reminded of:
- Tomorrow morning is the launch of our new Math lab. Mr. Ball sent an email out on this last Friday. From 8 to 9 AM on Tuesday and Wednesday of each week, we will be providing free math tutoring. Students just need to show up and we will take it from there. Please take advantage of this opportunity.
- Holly Migas and Delia Coker will be available on Tuesday and Friday this week, since we missed today. They will be available for one-on-one or small group emotional and mental support in The Nest from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM.
- Pastor Jarin Oda will be here during lunch time on Wednesday. Rumor has it, he may even have free pizza with him!
- Wednesday we will be conducting a brief student assembly led by Holly Migas. This will be to debrief the events from last week's tragedy and introduce the strategies for going forward. This will occur right before lunch and students will be asked to simply tune in from their second period classes. Please see your email for the altered Bell Schedule.
That's it for now. Again, I thank you for your patience and support as we forge ahead.
Head of School
